I’m pretty sure that Kaya fits into the category of a “good” baby. She doesn’t cry all that much and is overall pretty happy. However, occasionally (typically in the evenings) she gets worked up and it takes a little while to figure out how to get her to stop crying. First, I try to feed her. When that doesn’t work, I go through my list of other possibilities and typically this includes a diaper change. She will usually increase her crying during the diaper change as usually that’s not what’s ailing her. However, sometimes mid-change, she will suddenly stop crying. You might think that this would be a good thing. But, after 5 weeks I’ve finally learned that this signifies impending urination. My lesson to you: If the baby is screaming and stops during a diaper change, she’s about to pee all over herself and all over the changing table so make sure she’s got a diaper under her. I learned this the hard way. About 10 times.
