Activity #19: Bounce it out

in Month 1

Our mothers might swear by clothes dryers and vacuum cleaners, but I found that my yoga ball was a great tool to soothe my crying baby. Sit on it, holding swaddled baby, and bounce to a consistent rhythm.

If you don’t have a yoga ball, sit on the edge of your bed and bounce while you hold the baby. If someone is visiting and wants to help soothe the baby, show them this trick and then go get yourself a hot shower so that you don’t eavesdrop.
