My neighbors baby had been crying for HOURS! I mean LOUD! The parents are young, dad is 21 mom is 18 and they just moved in two weeks ago, they had the baby 4 days ago. My DH kept telling me to mind my own business and leave them alone, well after he left for work I heard them start yelling at eachother. My kids were in school so I went next door and knocked on the door. Mom answered the door she looked like she hadn't slept in days, dad was trying to get the baby to sleep but he wouldn't. I asked simply can I help you? Dad handed me the baby and he was bringing his little knees to his chest. So I pumped his legs and then attempted to burp him, one huge burp later he was asleep. Dad thanked me and left for work, I looked at the mom and told her to come over to my house she grabbed the baby's things and crashed on my couch while she and the baby slept for a few hours. I gave her a few tips and told her to let me know if I could help let me know,
Sometimes new moms need a helping hand.
