Baby Wisdom – The lesson of the bucket

bucketboySometimes babies can get a bit worked up – you know, they just can’t stop crying, they don’t even know quite why they are crying, they just are.

You’ve changed their nappy, they’ve had a bottle, they are probably a bit overtired and there is just nothing you can do to settle them.

Mary – my health nurse – what a legend – suggested putting baby in a bucket.

The warm water, the confined space, must take them back to the womb. Whatever. It worked for us.

This endeths the lesson.

If you have some baby wisdom to share – please do!
