Here's a video I shot when my youngest was a baby (sweet memories!)...
In this video, I outline Dr. Harvey Karp's 5 baby soothing techniques (these are brilliant). I also touch on one of the most important parenting strategies, that no one ever seems to talk about: Using your loving intuition! How to "listen" to your baby, and exercise your intuitive muscle. Listening to your baby is not taught in any books I've read, but it's something we can all do, and the benefits are profound. Really, this is as much about acknowledging the wise soul in our children, as it is about making them behave how we want them to.
Want your infant to be happier and sleep through most of the night, without crying? Want your older baby or toddler to sleep through the entire night, and play more independently in the day time? If you really follow the tips in this video, you will be off to a great start! And if you still need help, or need help with your elementary school aged kids (wouldn't it be nice if they did what you asked them to do, without complaint?) --call me!
I love coaching moms in all areas of their life--motherhood, partnership, and their often much neglected, but truly all important!, self growth and self nourishment.
No childcare? No problem! Babies or toddlers are welcome to play in my office while we talk. Older kids can work on homework or watch a video nearby.
