What To Do:

1. Sit in a chair with your baby lying on your thighs with his feet pointing toward your stomach.
2. Cradle his head with your hands and gently sway your body from side to side.
3. Gaze into his eyes and talk or sing to him. Your smiles and words may inspire him to coo and grin back at you.
