So today let’s talk about why babies cry while peeing.
You hold your newborn baby over the potty, as carefully and calmly as you’ve been taught...and then your baby begins to cry!
Talk about something that can both unnerve you and cripple your confidence in elimination communication.
Why does this happen? And what can you do?
First, don't panic. Okay? Okay.
This is actually a common phenomenon, and also one that I've experienced personally. We're going to talk you through it today, so hold on to your postpartum sweatpants.
You will learn:
- What crying while peeing can really mean
- Methods for soothing your baby through this phase
- What to do when negative self-talk creeps in
- About the fourth trimester
- More options to hold your baby over the potty comfortably
- When to rule out possible health reasons with your pediatrician
