Eureka Moment - The Baby Whisperer

Hi Girls

Yesterday I bought, Tracy Hogg's Baby whisperer book. The whole Gina Ford thing sounded too 'military' for me and not my cup of tea but I had heard that this was a softer version so I thought I would give it a try.

After reading the first couple of chapters I have had my Eureka moment. First the book actually "describes" different cries and confirmed to me that the "waa" "waa" "waa" cry was LO "I'm Hungry" signel (I suspected this was the case but now I'm confident about it) and that a more intense build up cry was LO's "Mummy it hurts" signel.

After reading about the differences between wind, reflux and colic I now realise where I have been going wrong, mainly too much jigging about making LO reflux problem worse, and last night tried the left side stomach rubbing technique. Eureka!!! Last night after waking for her night feed she was burped and back down happy asleep within 20 minutes. It was bliss especially as I'm full of cold and needed desperately to have a good night.

I'm just so happy. image Rather than me trying to find the best route through the forest via trial and error, I know feel like I have map and a few sign posts to help along the way.

Next step getting to grips this the E.A.S.Y routine. So far the 7am Eat, Activity, Sleep and You steps to the E.A.S.Y routine have worked a treat...its early days yet but I'm really opptirmistic.

Just wanted to share my Eureka moment
