I literally cant think. Sometimes enter fight or flight mode.

Baby has been crying more than usual lately. *Sigh*

What I mean by focus is
Focus on other kids,
Focus on everything that needs to get done,
Especially things that are urgent...

I find it extremely difficult to drop everything each time the baby cries. Is that what im meant to do??

Depends on my emotional stability that day. If I'm doing okay, I can handle the crying with periodic reassurances to baby that they are okay. If I'm doing less okay, I can handle the crying if I know something is being done for baby - I.e. older sibling is pushing in stroller or rocking in seat. If I'm doing even less okay? Well, then for my sanity I can't have baby crying. Worst case scenario I have to at least not be able to HEAR the crying.
