The 5 S’s

Nate borrowed a DVD from a coworker about how to calm babies (The Happiest Baby on the Block.) It offered a really interesting set of tips for activating what Dr Karp calls the “calming reflex.”

It’s called the 5 S’s and includes swaddling, side position, swinging, shushing and sucking. So far, it has been working like magic. Baby magic.

I got to do dishes and make dinner because I actually got to set her down for a little bit this afternoon!
