As any parent knows, there are three items that affect the moods of every child, and sometimes the three work together to form an unholy trinity of fussiness.

  • Dirty Diapers
  • Gas
  • Sleep Deprivation

Dirty Diapers are straight forward. In most cases there is a call to arms in the form of loud gaseous explosions. This can also be accompanied by grunting, snorting and a beet red face.

Gas is the silent killer, couple this with sleep deprivation and you have a recipe for a meltdown. Patting the baby in a gentle way is an art that I was not familiar with. Bouncing is bad. Do not bounce and pat unless you want the Mt. Vesuvius of breast milk to be upon you.

Sleep deprivation is the easiest fix. Find the soothing item that calms your baby and use it! Our soothing technique is being outside. I recommend the mosquito netting as it blocks the aformentioned blood suckers, and surprisingly, helps block bird poop from hitting your baby (true story).
