For others, it’s the excessive pride they feel for their child that turns […]

Letting your baby cry it out

First-time parents often cannot resist rushing to their baby’s side when he or she starts to cry. This is good! After all, crying is a baby’s first form of communication. A child’s tears tell mummy and daddy that “I’m hungry”, “I need a new nappy” or “I feel ill” in place of speech. But when […]
