Step 1: Learn to identify when the baby’s batteries need to be recharged – ideally prior to meltdown. Resist the temptation to laugh (muwhahaha) once a meltdown strikes although not always easy, laughing only seems to further frustrate the small child.
Step 2: Install binky and satin blanket. Tip toe out of the closet you are using for a nursery and pray an ambulance doesn’t barrel down the street.
Step 3: Once the baby is done charging, let her power back on at her own speed. Be sure to keep the binky installed until you are ready to remove the baby from the charger.
Step 4: Take the baby out to a nice restaurant, ideally some place that serves gourmet mac and cheese. Home worked well for us on this occasion.
