My mother in law gave me a book
to help soothe a baby to sleep when I first told her that Jim and I were pregnant. I was hoping that we wouldn't need it but...after 3 or 4 straight days of crying from about 3-11pm each day I couldn't handle it and looked into the book. They said everything we had been trying (using the 5 S's):
Well, in all honesty we had tried all but the swaddling but she hated this after about the 2nd week. We decided to try it after we had nothing else to try. I have to tell you it was magic. She cried a bit at first and then fell asleep. We've been using it for the past 2 or 3 days now and it has worked every time
. So, for new Moms try these techniques. They really, really do work!
