Baby, can't wait for a cuddle, exhausted, Happy momma happy baby!, teething, This too shall pass, Toddler

Take a deep breath and keep on going …

I feel like the luckiest person in the world to be a mum to my amazing little one. Most days he is a very happy baby (or should I say toddler now!), full of smiles, giggles and chats. But, like everyone, he also has his grumpy days, which are often as a result of teething, sickness or more recently mummy leaving.

You would think that a baby crying is fine, just let him cry it out and it will all be grand. But the reality of it is very different. If you are trying to do even the simplest task with a crying child, everything gets instantly more stressful. Even more so when you have no idea what’s wrong (and it’s out of character).

This is typically the time that snapping happens, if anyone is trying to help me at the time. Rational thinking goes out the window. These are the moments we feel super stressed and totally not ourselves.

Like everything, this moment of crying will soon pass, and rational thinking will return, I promise! But in the midst of it, all we can really do is take a deep breath and keep on going.

If any mum or dad snaps at you while trying to calm a crazy baby, don’t take it personally, they just need a few minutes. Things will be back to normal shortly. They just need a minute to take a deep breath 🙂
