I’m a new parent, which is exciting on its own, but has especially brought joy, curiosity, and entertainment for family and friends since it’s me. They all appreciate my parenting adventures from an intellectual/emotional perspective (INTJ, logic trumps emotion, very analytical, habit/routine follower) and physically (at 6’1” 250lbs, I look like a giant next to our baby).
For all of the five months of our daughter Natalie’s existence, we’ve done everything we can to figure out how best to soothe her random and intense bouts of fussiness. Unfortunately for our sleep, our troubleshooting typically occurs throughout the night. Being me, I approach every situation with a four-step checklist working towards a resolution.
