Once upon a time, there was one book on parenting. It was called "Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care" and most of your mothers probably read it cover to cover. 

Now there are so many parenting philosophies, it's mind-numbing. From tiger moms to helicopter parents to free-range to attachment to those croissant-wielding French, it seems like you have to pick a team before you can get to the nitty-gritty business of parenting. 

As for me, I'm too busy trying to figure out what kind of mother has time to read a book, rather than subscribing to any specific school.

If you are like me and you're just trying to get as much sleep as possible without sending any of your children into early therapy, you'll appreciate the Portlandia video below.


FYI- that Happiest Baby on Block thing where you tightly hold the baby turned away from you and then shush them as loudly as possible, works like a charm on Harlow.

Thanks to Lauren from A Mommy in the City for telling me about the video.
