Just add water

When Ava was a baby, she had an unusually fussy day while we were visiting Gramma and Grampa Great’s house. Gramma suggested a bath might help, and kindly offered her kitchen sink. The moment Ava’s toes hit the water, she calmed down. This trick is one that works well–in fact, it was a warm shower that brought Ava back from the brink of a meltdown last night after a too-long playdate in the country. (In hindsight, I should have tried one for both us a couple hours later…)

Last weekend, when Owen was struggling with an ear infection, eczema outbreak and four(!) new top teeth, we plopped our cranky baby in the kitchen sink. It worked beautifully, Gramma!

    Water does wonders!!!!! Glad it worked–he certainly looks happy.

  3. I have never seen a bad picture of a baby in a sink getting a bath! Thanks for a great one, Rebecca. Is he cute?
