Ok, we have an adorable 4 month old goddaughter. She has blue eyes, gorgeous dimples and a beautiful little smile. Her mom dropped her off to spend a little time with us this evening. Unfortunately, our little princess cried for 30 – 45 minutes, non stop, prior to her mother returning. Why did she cry for such an extended period of time? Cereal! Her mom is attempting to introduce her to rice cereal. Apparently it’s either not agreeing with her little tummy or her parents are putting wayyyy too much in her bottle. Now, back to the crying… after trying everything from rocking her to taking her for a walk in her stroller I decided to go “old school”. I went into the bathroom and turned on the blow dryer. Within about two minutes the crying stopped and in about 20 minutes the baby was asleep on my shoulder. Who comes up with these ideas? I don’t know but I’m glad they shared that one!
Thanks for reading and feel free to pass this little helpful tip along to any and all of your young parent friends and colleagues.
