Baby work flow
Written on November 30, 2005 by Kevin.
Patatamonkey.com recently made a post entitled "What to do when he cries" poster in which he lays out some suggestions for if your baby is crying. I decided to take it one step sideways and turn it into a work flow chart. Simply print this out, tack it to the wall and when you are in the most stressful of times, read it so you don't forget some basic possible solutions.
For those wondering why feeding is near the bottom of the solutions, this is because babies will stop crying when you feed them even though they may not be hungry. The sucking action will likely calm the baby but overtime, put some serious pain on the mother. We certainly try to avoid feeding for general crying unless we know his feeding time is right around the corner.
