“My daughter’s name is Anayah and she’s two months old. She was also born 7 weeks before her due date as a preemie baby.
I have a 16-month-old boy who was also a preemie named Jeremiah. My daughter has colic/reflux, so she has been super cranky and constantly wants to be held. It got to the point where I couldn’t put her down for more than 10 minutes without her crying.
I saw this great hack and it’s the BEST THING I’VE DONE YET! She forever wants to be held and now I get my break. It’s just rice in a glove and let me tell you it works! I had seen something similar on Pinterest.
So, when I remembered my mom had gloves in her cabinet I went and grabbed a glove and poured some rice into the glove, packing it tightly. The moment I laid her down and placed the glove on her back, she stopped crying which was such a relief!
Of course, everyone has their own opinion on this hack. Some like it and some don’t but every mother knows their child. My daughter loves it and is doing just fine. I had to post it because I know how hard it is to not have a break and if I can help a mom out, I definitely will!
Note: My baby never sleeps with all the blankets around her or near this window; she has a crib for that. This was just a quick picture and she was being monitored the whole time.”
