HELP FOR CRYING BABIES
/PressMediaWire/ — National Bestselling Author, Gail J. Dahl has some great tips for crying babies. In three simple steps you can help your baby to calm and relax. The tips are as follows: The world is a noisy, bright, busy place for your newborn. If your baby cries excessively within the first 48 hours of life, bring your baby to your physician to make sure everything is ok. Then; feed your baby, change your baby, make sure your baby is nice and warm.
Now you can: 1. Turn down the lights, turn down the sound, slow down movement and activity. 2. Hold your baby in their favorite position to help them look out and focus on a bright light or blank wall. 3. Roll up your baby’s sleeves and bring the hands close to the mouth so that your baby can look at or suck on their hands, fingers or thumbs. These steps will help your baby to use their instinctual skills to calm down and stop crying.
Practice these self-calming skills daily with your baby and within a short time your baby will automatically use these natural skills to calm and relax. Gail J. Dahl will be on hand at the MOM2B Trade Show from September 30th to October 1st, 2007 in Los Angeles, California with bookmarks on “Help for Crying Babies”.
