Welcome to another edition of Baby Medical Q&A News.
This month I want to talk a little bit about energy.
We all have an energy that we operate on - your vibration is another way of talking about it.
I will be publishing a new ebook later in the year on this topic and how it affects parenting and will keep you posted on when it's available.
For now, I just want to breifly touch on some issues that may help you with some parenting issues.
1. The unsettled baby.
What I often notice with unsettled babies is that the parent, usually the mother, is so concernced about her baby that she has a scattered energy. So what I mean is that when her baby is unsettled, she is thinking about what happened yesterday when her baby cried (energy in the past) and she is thinking about all the things she needs to do and how this episode will affect that (so energy in the future). This is a scattered energy and babies pick up on energy. That is how they understand the world.
I am not saying that the mother is the cause of the baby being unsettled, but I have observed that when the mother focuses her energy on the present moment that everything seems calmer and often the baby settles.
When you are in the present, you are much more able to tap into your intuition (and mother's intuition - and father's) is very important. In your state of being in the present, you will be much more likely to know whether there is anything seriously wrong with your baby or if your baby is just having a 'fussy' period. Next month we will look at the "Period of PURPLE Crying" in more detail.
To get your energy into the present, close your eyes and take a few deep breaths. Pull your energy back from the past and from the future (you can always put your energy back there once you have dealt with your baby). Then just notice your baby, notice everything about her but don't make any judgements - just be in a noticing mode.
2.The toddler having a tantrum
Again, parents often have a number of things on their mind when a toddler has a tantrum. The toddler has one thing on their mind usually - getting their way. There is no point getting frustrated or taking a toddler's tantrum personally. The next time your toddler has a tantrum, focus your energy (get present). That change in your energy alone will cause a change in your toddler's behaviour. Try it and see
So keep a look out for my new book.
