Becoming a new parent is hard enough. Having a baby that's really hard to get to sleep, wakes often, sleeps for short periods, or cries excessively, can make the transition to parenthood even more challenging.
It’s important to remember that any difficulties your baby is having isn't your fault. Babies come into the world with their own personalities and characteristics. Some babies are born with physical or medical complications like acid reflux or colic that affect their ability to settle or to feed. Many of these types of conditions can be treated, and having them addressed can often help with other issues like sleeping and feeding. If you suspect a medical issue might be affecting your baby’s ability to feed or sleep, then talk to a health professional.
