‘The Great Wall of Fuss’ Apparently Solves Newborns’ Dreaded Witching Hours

Every parent remembers this time, and how unfun it is. Here’s how these parents combatted it.

One of those things that new parents aren't warned nearly enough about are the witching hours. At some point, just about every single newborn will go through a phase where they refuse to sleep or do anything but scream — and there's almost nothing that will settle them.

"They love it. (and they are very much supervised during their visits at the Great Wall of Fuss)," Mom wrote in her caption.
