You know that feeling when you have had that week, that day, that hour or even that minute where your baby has had a melt down and it looks like you might actually be doing something right because they are seeping or at the very least lying contendtendly without screaming like a banshee.
Whatever you do at this point, do not congratulate yourself or turn to your partner (or anyone for that matter) and be like – hey, you know what we are doing alright here. It’s the universes way of being told to fuck you up at the next opportunity. Lo and behold within at least a day (usually a lot less) whatever you thought you were doing well and/or right will now be completely wrong and your baby will be going mental. and you’ll be back to the drawing board about how to calm it the hell down.
