Calming environment activity
Your baby is used to a calming environment from the time when he was in his mother’s womb. There are little things you can do to try and replicate that calming environment for your baby.
To create a calming environment for your baby, try:
To choose colours in the nursery that are soothing, soft and neutral so that it is visually calming for your baby
To limit exposure to very noisy environments as this can upset your baby.
To give your baby a back rub which can be very calming and reassuring.
Slow rocking and rhythmical movements that will be enjoyed by your baby.
