Wow, has it been nearly 20 days since my last post?! Eeks. Time is going by way TOO fast! A belated Happy Summer greeting to you! And boy, am I thrilled it’s summer!
Well, here I am with a topic I’ve been wanting to post for the past couple of months. What ultimately reminded me that I haven’t yet posted it was when I went to register for the Postpartum Support International conference today and saw that Dr. Harvey Karp, yes, THE Dr. Harvey Karp of “The Happiest Baby on the Block,” is going to speak at the conference on September 15th! If you’re in the area then, be sure to sign up soon!
Two months ago today, I was contacted by Emily Weece of The Happiest Baby, Inc. to share this information on my blog. It’s important to remember that knowing how to cope with the curve balls nature throws our way– like colic and struggling with having to calm fussy babies– is key in lowering the risk of postpartum depression (PPD) in the new mom that is at risk for it. See my past post for more on colic.
