Bad Mommy?

Posted in Uncategorized at 5:15 pm by bitsypieces

Although Baby does not (yet) have colic (knock-on-wood), she does have moments when she’s inconsolable for no reason. I accidentally discovered that dancing with her while playing Justin Timberlake’s SexyBack can soothe her to sleep.

Now, SexyBack isn’t the most PC song. And personally, I am not a fan of Timberlake or the song. But when she’s screaming and crying for no reason, I am willing to do whatever works.

So am I a bad mommy for using such a ridiculous song to lull Baby to sleep?

I wonder if the Parenting Police will come after me for this one.

    You aren’t a bad mommy- you’re a smart mommy! WHATEVER works is a great mommy motto. Good luck!

    ….and if the parenting police come after you, I’ll bail you out.

    At this stage whatever works!!!

    Something that really helps with colic or later teething is
    Hylander’s Colic or Teething tablets – they are all natural and work better than anything else. The teething tablets work better than any medicine out there.

    Also baby could be gassy – did you eat some gassy food (broccoli)?
