A soothing activity for baby
What You Need:
- Soothing music (optional)
What To Do:
- Place baby on her back on a blanket and turn on soft soothing music.
- Gently stroke away from the heart (shoulder to wrist) for relaxation.
- Name baby’s body parts as you massage (e.g., “Let’s massage your arm.”)
- Gently hold baby’s thigh, gently squeezing and stroking all the way to the ankle.
- Draw tiny circles on baby’s head with your fingers.
- Draw an oval on baby’s tummy in a clockwise direction to aid digestion.
- If baby starts to fuss or turn away at any time, that’s okay. You can always try again when she is ready.
