Crying Baby

Dear Nurse Annie.
My son cries even more now. I rarely sleep more than a few minutes. My mother says to put my baby  on his belly and let him cry it out. The packet from the hospital says not to put him on his belly.
What can I do?
Exhausted Ethel.

Dear Ethel,
I am so sorry your baby is still crying. It is not recommended for a baby so young to belly sleep.
At this point I would suggest you visit with your Pediatrician.
You are exhausted and need help.
This could be a time to adjust what your baby is eating. You need to discuss your routine with the nurse and work into a more comfortable situation with your baby.
Do let me know how your visit goes.
Nurse Annie.
