Leaving newborn to cry
I have a toddler and a newborn. The newborn is not a good sleeper. She will feed then be awake for hours. I have no choice but to put her down in the crib and leave her to cry so I can see to he toddler and my own basic needs like showering and eating. I’ve tried comforting her, rocking and holding her endlessly but it’s taking too much out of me and I simply don’t have enough pairs of hands to do it al the time. If she has been fed, is clean, winded and a good temperature - is leaving her to cry in another room really that bad? She falls asleep eventually but sometimes cries for up to an hour before that happens. My parents say they used to leave us to cry when we were little and it didn’t cause any psychological damage….
