Your baby has a sunny disposition.
Your baby has a high intensity, which is wonderful when the emotion is positive, not so wonderful when feelings are negative. Parents and caregivers may have difficulty distinguishing between this baby's cries, whether the complaint indicates mild discomfort or something more serious. Either way, this baby gets attention.
Your baby is content with a regular routine, which in turn makes it easy for you to predict her wants and needs.
Your baby enjoys physical activity, but also quieter moments. When this baby is well-rested and fed and in a familiar environment, it's playtime.
Your baby is aware of what's going on around her, and yet is not disturbed by sensory stimulation. She can tolerate a little noise and activity, but may have a personal pet peeve, such as disco music during naptime or a diaper that's damp.
Your baby is easily soothed. That's the good news. But being easily soothed means it's easy to distract the child, which can be a troublesome quality later on, when there's homework to be done and the neighborhood kids are knocking on the door.
Your baby is slow to accept new situations, and tends to avoid the unfamiliar. Try to limit your child's exposure to too many new faces or unnecessary changes in routine. When your child's situation will be changing--a move to the toddler room at daycare, for instance--prepare the child in advance by visiting the new place and meeting the people involved in the transition.
Your child is fairly adaptable to new situations in the long-term. If Dad takes over a routine that was once Mom's domain, such as giving a bath or reading bedtime stories, your child will be wary at first, but will eventually accept the new order. As much as possible, let your child know what to expect, and as your child gets older, make sure the rules and boundaries are clear. It's easier to be adaptable in a household that has an established order and rules that are firm and understood.
yea im the only one with a high intensity baby lol
