7. Remember, it really does get better!
Although it may be difficult to see the light at the end of the tunnel, countless parents of high need babies do attest to the fact that the situation does improve with time. If you are the parent of a high need child, you may want to print out the following testimonial, and read it whenever you feel frustrated or ready to give up:
"My high need baby is two today! All I can say is to have faith that you will get through it. Though my son may never be an 'easy' child, he is such a joy to be around. He is so sweet and compassionate, and loves to be hugged and kissed, and to give hugs and kisses. He is so smart and funny! All that time my husband and I spent carrying him around and sleeping with him, (and crying because of him) has really paid off. He is absolutely the most wonderful child! Hang in there all!" -- iVillager Sallye
