Fall Editor's Letter
My younger was a crier. Although never officially diagnosed with colic, she cried. A lot. As in every waking hour in which she wasn’t eating. There was one other way to get her to stop crying. In our kitchen, the floor creaked in front of our pantry. If you held her up above your head and rocked back and forth to make the floor creak, she would stop momentarily. But because I don’t have super arm strength, this would only keep her quiet for a few minutes. I have a very vivid memory of the first day she was quiet for 30 minutes. It was a breakthrough! To look at her today, you’d never guess she was a crier. She’s an almost-teenager with a super sweet disposition. As a mom who has been there, I know having a baby that cries all the time is hard. Really, really hard. Olathe mom Lauren Greenlee has some great tips.
