In light of the depressing, funny and frustrating 'What is the worst advice you have ever been given?' thread, I thought we needed a BEST advice one.
Best advice I was ever given:
Relax about it and cuddle your baby.
When I was a brand new Mum ( seems so long ago) I was fretting about this and that and DS1 was cranky and crying a lot.
I actually employed this.. I relaxed about it all. I fed him when I thought he wanted it and burped and cuddled other times, if he was awake he was in my arms. He immediately became a settled and content baby.
It had worked.
