I am Kim Taylor. Today, I am 32 years old…. I think. Yep, just did the math, 32. I probably should have started this blog 1115 days ago when my first daughter was born, but finally a little over 3 years and here I am.
I have survived 2 colic babies and never realized how many people out there were going through the same thing. In my sleep deprivation days, I would think of so many things that could help others and, of course, forget about my amazing idea the next day. Well, not this one.
There were so many nights, colic or not colic, that I was one-handed. One-handed holding my baby in my arms, cold, then hot, needing a baby blanket, then as I am bouncing her and walking around the room, thinking these things: “I wish I had a pocket to place my cell phone and white noise near her ear.” and “Darnit, I just dropped the pacifier! Do I really have to bend over one more time?” or how about when they are older…”Ugh, I wish she would stop dropping the teether!”
So, I thought up the most amazing sweater there is… a jacket that has pockets in the right spots, handy holders, a look that can go with or without baby, and easy access to the boobs for those nursing mothers. That’s not all of it, and especially for those with colic or high maintenance babies, the fact that you can fasten a portion of the wrap to be great back support when bouncing or walking around with the baby.
So, here it goes. My new blog, my new experience, my new business.
Colic is one of the most exhausting periods that a new parent will experience. Not only are you dealing with a newborn, their irregular schedules, and learning one another, but you are dealing with a baby that just won’t stop crying. Understanding colic can help you as a new parent to overcome these hurdles and be able to embrace this short phase and help your baby.
