Calm Baby

Calm Baby (4)

In all the hustle and bustle of a household – whether your little one is the first child entering an adult sphere, or a younger sibling now contending with the hubbub of big kids – there’s often a lot of noise. It feels like we’ve had more than our fair share lately, from an under-the-weather big brother watching loud holiday movies, to music playing, to ambient sounds of dishwashers and laundry machines.

If you notice your baby showing signs of overstimulation (arms flailing, turning the head away), then take a moment for this easy activity.

Veronika and I retreated to a quiet room with no background noise, where we could just be for a moment. You can talk quietly, or sing softly, or just sit with your infant.

In moments you should notice the baby relax in your arms. Veronika sure did! I got smiles and her wide-eyed adoring gaze – making this a zen moment for mama too!
