I did not realize Caroline was a high need infant until long after the fact. I chalked it all up to us being new parents, exhaustion, the winter doldrums, etc. I so wish I had found these resources the first few months. I truly believe our first year as parents would have been much happier. Our Caroline fits the descriptions in the Dr. Sears articles below to a tee. I hope you find something helpful as you read here!
