Comfort the baby

Help them comfort themselves

Sucking is not just a means of nourishment for some babies. They derive satisfaction from the act of sucking itself. Babies appreciate your help in getting their fingers to their mouths. Some appreciate your lending a finger or two. (Please ensure that your nails are clean and closely clipped). Others find pleasure in a dummy.

Rhythmic rocking, cuddling and swaddling

Babies respond to rhythmic rocking in your arms, a pram or a cradle. Walking the floor with your baby in your arms, a sling or a carrier may be tiring, but a tried and true measure. Some babies derive comfort from being tightly swaddled. Cuddling gives the baby a sense of security. A warm water bath, singing, stroking and massaging, rhythmic sounds like the hum of a fan, all have a soothing effect.
