Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Some studies have shown that babies pick up on other people's moods and respond accordingly. If you're happy, your baby is more likely to be happy. If you're upset, depressed, or stressed for extended periods your baby is more likely to be fussy and generally unhappy. You being stressed shouldn't really harm your son, but be prepared for him to be a little more difficult to deal with if you're stressed and unhappy around him. When you're with him, do your best to focus only on him and try to be happy.
i know its just really hard but that's what i try and do just focus on him and just him but my little brother even tho i love him and when i was sad my little brother would comfort me(: but thank god he is getting better!
