That’s the question I was asked this weekend by a friend of a friend.
It’s not the first time it’s been asked of me either. I have been asked this question since Adalyn was only a couple weeks old. The first time I was asked I immediately respond with yes she’s a good baby, if we can just get her to sleep we’ll be awesome. After that conversation I thought to myself, what does that mean? I mean she’s 3 weeks old, what could she possibly be doing that’s causing her to be a bad baby?
It’s a question I’m thoroughly stumped by and can’t quite figure that out. I mean is there a baby out there who is considered bad? What considers a baby to be a bad baby? Is she bad if she spits up after every feeding? Is it when she cries when she’s not swaddled tight enough? Seriously, what constitutes a bad baby?
Personally, there is no such thing as a bad baby. There is always a reason behind a babies cry. Even if it’s just to be cuddled close to his or her mother, there is a reason. They are all innocent and faultless gifts from God. So, I ask of my readers, please don’t ever ask someone if their baby is a good baby.
I leave you with a question: At what age does one become a bad child? J
