Quoting Mandy Evans:" what kind of techniques? "
it depends on the situation and what is frustrating you. taking deep breaths, walking away for a minute to just take a break, etc. remember, a lot of things that frustrate you won't change by losing your patience. i used to lose my patience QUICK when my oldest was a baby and he would wake up early and after a night that i barely got any sleep. but what good is that going to do me? now i can wake up to get my youngest bottles all night (about 3-4 times), or stay up with him all night if he isn't feeling well, and still go into work at 5 am and not be angry or frustrated. it sucks, and i will be tired, but i did what i had to do--getting upset wouldn't help. i just try to make the best of things, even if it's a crappy situation
