How To Avoid Fussy Evenings With Your Newborn

Welcome to our  “More than Sleep” show!

I want you all to know this is a safe space- ask me anything and lets talk about all things motherhood.

You can find us Monday’s and Wednesdays at 9:30 am MST. Maybe the baby is sleeping? Tune in.. and tune in if he’s not and maybe we can help!

 

Today we’re chatting about fussy evenings with your newborns and how you can avoid them.

To be honest, I wasn’t sure what to talk about this week, but then I had a look at my inbox, and it suddenly became very clear. So many mamas emailed asking me what they are doing wrong and why their newborn is fussy in the evening! First, let me just say that you are not doing anything wrong mama! 

I noticed a very common theme in my emails- the babies were not sleeping, they were mixed up between day and night, and all of them had had extremely fussy evenings from about 7pm until 12am, just to be up 2 hours later. 

If you’re feeling frantic, I hear you mama, I’ve been there myself with my first boy. When babies act like this, they can be labelled as “colic” babies, and you may be told that they’ll grow out of it. Those are not the words you want to hear when you’re in the midst of your babe crying hours on end. I get that! 

So now what? 

I’d argue that “Colic” is actually an underlying feeding or timing issue- and we can help you get to the bottom of that! We can help you get your evenings back mama! If you’re having a hard time getting your newborn to sleep, reach out to your local Mama Coach for Support.
