What was entered under “other”:
- Recognition that a baby needs security, that people listen and watch what the baby indicates. I am an advocate of holistic and natural parenting.
- Looking beyond a medical cause, our daughter turned out to be breastfeeding way too much.
Advice and guidance during swaddling.
- Attention to the condition of the mother. Nobody said I could get exhausted. That happened after 4 months.
- Our son was in the AMC IC Neonatology and RKZ. I would have expected more from these two hospitals how to respond when our baby came home.
- Many experts mistakenly regard a crying baby as an isolated phenomenon. While a baby is always crying for a cause.
