A New Baby

Dear Jitters,

Coming up I am going to have a nephew and I do not know what to do when I hear a yelling baby. Will I get no sleep at all?




Dear Anonymous,

Congratulations on your soon-to-be new member of the family! Of course, it can be very difficult maintaining a healthy sleeping schedule with a baby in the house. However, depending on your room’s proximity to the “yelling baby,” it shouldn’t be long before you are able to develop a way of lessening the sound in your area or tuning it out altogether. Since every infant is different, you may even have less of a crying problem than expected. Try not to dwell on the negatives and focus on the wonderful moments to come.
