For Crying Out Loud!

“People who say they sleep like a baby usually don’t have one.”
 - Unknown

I am linking you up today to another article I wrote for What's Up Magazine on the topic of colic. I experienced this on a minor level, but some parents go through a really difficult time. Thanks to Erin, Vicky, Julie and Sonya for their help and support both for this piece and personally! What goes around, come around! Love you gals!

One thing I want to add to the content of this article is that sometimes the crying does not stop at baby. Postpartum depression is a very real, very difficult condition. It, like colic, is also quite common. If you or someone you love is suffering, please see your doctor and tell someone - anyone.

Don't suffer alone. Please seek help.

If your spouse, mother, friend, whoever does not listen or tells you to "just snap out of it", tell someone else until they listen. There is light at the end of the tunnel. There is help. I have been there and will surely post about my experiences in the near future. Feel fee to share yours here.

Thanks for reading and have a great day!

Me and my firstborn Julian
