  • Will kissing the back of a baby’s head stop the baby from crying or will the baby continue to cry?

    Best answer: Well - it is not a magic off switch for crying. A gentle kiss on the back of the head might sometimes calm a crying baby but it certainly will not stop the crying every single time.

    Most of the time, the baby will continue to cry after a kiss on the back of the head.

    I’m 31 and my girlfriend is 20, we have an 8 month old son. My girlfriend never liked kids and didn’t want any, especially not that young but I was the one who asked her to keep him because i wanted kids. I work from home and so I take care of our son, while my girlfriend went back to college almost right after she gave birth. I don’t mind taking care of our boy, however, my girlfriend is always so distant to him, it’s almost like she doesn’t even care if he’s around. She has never changed a diaper, gave him a bath or held him voluntarily. Every time I ask her to hold him or feed him, it turns into an argument. Our son can feel it too; he looks nervous around her and often cries. I’m not sure how to help her bond with him, since she doesn’t even seem willing to try. My biggest fear is that she’ll abandon him completely. Our relationship as a couple has ended long ago (we never had anything serious anyway) and it feels like there is nothing keeping her close to her kid. I don’t want our son to grow up without a mom and I don’t want her to live with the fact that she left her kid. What can I do to help them?

  • Why cant i cope with my baby he wakes up every 2 hours i just feel like having him ruined my life?

    Best answer: There is a trick that may work for you. My wife was advised to give the baby a large last feed of the day. Babies wake up when they are hungry so it did work. However really young babies do need frequent feeding so you will just have to struggle on until the big last feed works. This was not breast feeding of... show more

    Babies wake up when they are hungry so it did work. However really young babies do need frequent feeding so you will just have to struggle on until the big last feed works. This was not breast feeding of course so I can't advise on that. Maybe change to bottle feeding and make sure you are using the right formula for his/her age. Good luck.

  • I live on the UK and I am increasingly seeing "breastfeeding friendly" policy and having to look at exposed wabbies, is that fair?

    I don't know where to look sometimes. having a crap or a wee wee is natural too but I wouldn't expose my penis or my bottom. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a gaylord but there is a time and a place to look at funbags.

    I have a 2 month old baby that has been suffering from acid reflux ever since he was born. It has gotten worse recently so the baby’s Pediatrician prescribed him Zantac. Today was his first day taking it and I don’t see that it’s making a difference. Is it supposed to work right away or does it take time? I have been struggling to put him to sleep for about 3 weeks now. He cries when I try to lay him down and he stays awake and uncomfortable until about 4 AM. It is 3:03 AM right now and he’s just dozing off. So I really need help. Please let me know if it worked and if it did how you gave it to your baby. Sincerely, Struggling Mom

    We have a 11 day old baby who refuses to sleep in his crib. It seems the only place he’ll sleep at night is on one of us and the second you set him down in the crib, he’s up and very unhappy. We have tried a routine of feed, change and music before bed which puts him to sleep quickly but not for long. We were advised by friends to get a motorized swing... we did and he LOVES to nap in it for hours uninterrupted during the day, but again at night, he wants nothing other than to lay on mommy or daddy. We don’t do “cry it out” because daddy has to be up so early for work and we don’t want to wake others. This is our first child and we’re fumbling through this so any tips, tricks or ideas are much appreciated. Thank you!
