Period of PURPLE Crying

The Period of PURPLE Crying® is the phrase used to describe the point in a baby’s life when they cry more than any other time. This period of increased crying is often described as colic, but there have been many misunderstandings about what “colic” really is.

The Period of PURPLE Crying is a new way to help parents understand this time in their baby’s life, which is a normal part of every infant’s development. Click the website link below to learn valuable information.

Safe Sleeping for Infants

One of the most important decisions you will make as a new parent is where your baby will sleep.
Your baby should always sleep ALONE, on his/her BACK, and only in a CRIB.
