I’ve noticed that advice for caring for babies changes almost annually. I’ve given birth to three babies and with each one I was given different advice about some of the same things. Things like when to begin cereal, or how to put the baby down for sleeping, or baths, bath products, etc. The things I did with my first baby worked so well that I did the same with the other two. I just don’t remember bouncing my babies. I rocked them, walked with them held against my shoulder, held them out in front of me and chattered or laughed, or sang to them to keep them calm, quiet and not crying. Follow the link below:

Is it just me, or do those moms look uncomfortable with their babies? Bouncing your baby is not a false start-it’s your baby.

In my new novel “A False Start,” there are no babies. Read the first four chapters at : http://www.afalsestart.com
