Teething Child I Need to Sleep!

Question: My child is up every hour crying, this teething is exhausting.  I've tried everything and nothing is working my husband and I are getting no sleep! Help!

A: I could tell you every way I know to comfort your child, but it sounds like you have tried them already. Teething hurts! As your teeth cut through your gums it hurts. Getting no sleep is unhealthy.  You and your husband need self care.  Set up a sleep schedule one of you sleep 4 hours while the other is alert to take care of your child. Then switch. You will need to revert back to this emergency sleep plan for other illnesses or when the next child comes.  Hang in there this stage will only last a short while.

The Discontent Child

Child Discontentment: Children are born with discontentment.  Which means they are not satisfied.  Which shouldn't surprise us.  Children are safe in the womb, they are fed, sound is muffled and they are content.  Once born into this world feeding issues happen, bodily functions come into play, and sensory stimuli can be overwhelming (light, sounds and smells). Children need to have us help them through this process.  It is a type of conditioning of the mind.  Children need us adults to help them dwell on the earth with all of its wonders, distractions, and stimuli.   We need to support children in looking at the blessings of the earth (butterflies, smiles, flowers, gentle winds, loving voices, familiar faces, and cool summer nights) as well as showing expressions of gratitude for all that we have. What are you teaching children?
