Is Your Baby's Temperament "Good" or "Bad"?

Mar 07, 2022

Is she a good baby?

What a stupid question. Why? Because the answer is always YES. Every baby is a good baby.

What they’re really asking is…

Does she sleep well?
Does she eat well?
Does she cry a lot?
Does she demand your attention?

What if the answer to these questions is no? Does that mean she’s not a good baby?

Of course not.

It means she’s a unique little human who’s figuring out the world. It means she’s a baby who is learning to communicate her needs really well and get what she needs from you.

But how she does this (aka her temperament), will affect the answer to the above questions.

In today’s episode of Parenting in the First 3 Years, we look at how temperament affects your child, how you can identify what your child’s temperament is, and how, no matter their unique temperament, you can respond to them in a way that is supportive and loving.
