WHAT CAN YOU DO?
✓ Swaddling. Wrapping your baby snugly in a receiving blanket helps to mimic the warm confines of your womb, making him feel safe.
✓ Side soothing. Laying your baby on his side shuts down his body’s Moro reflex to help keep him calm.
✓ Sound. White noise (such as that created by a hairdryer, a car ride or a white noise machine/cd) helps to soothe your baby.
✓ Swinging. Carry your baby in a sling or baby carrier as rhythmic movement help keep him calm.
✓ Sucking. Keep your baby occupied with a dummy. Suckling on the breast or bottle also helps.
