Jacob is able to briefly calm down.
Fantastic! Believe it or not, there's no such thing as spoiling a newborn. Newborns do not have the neurological maturity to settle down on their own. So initially, you will need to help comfort them. From birth to two months, you should do whatever it takes. As babies reach 4 to 6 months of age, they become more capable of self-soothing.
