Soothing a newborn


Just thought I would share this tip that has worked beautifully for my baby who is two weeks old today:

To sooth a fussy infant put them cheek to cheek with you and talk/ hum/ sing.

In the womb they experience sound as mostly vibration rather than actual sound. They need to adjust to hearing much like seeing, so continuing to use vibration of sound through the face is much more soothing than hearing sounds at first.

I hope this helps someone 🥰 pic of my baby Klaus just because.
