Calming techniques that you can try with your baby when he is anxious, upset, or sad.

What You Need:

None

What To Do:

1. Remain calm yourself. Babies pick up on your stress and may become more agitated if you are.
2. Slow down the tempo of your movements and words.
3. Smile and speak softly as you gaze into your baby’s eyes.
4. As you cuddle him and give gentle kisses, let him know that you know he’s upset but he’ll be okay soon.
