BABIES KIDS SHEEP GIFTS
Nothing wears away at a parent's nerves like a baby's crying spells. Other harsh
noises are merely annoying, but a baby's wailing is downright distressing, because it
makes you feel so helpless, so frustrated, and so inadequate as a parent.
That feeling is universal. All babies cry; it is natural, normal, and even healthy – at
least for the baby. The toll it takes on your mental health is another matter. The guide
that follows will help you understand why your baby cries, what you may be able to do
about it, and how to hold on to what remains of your sanity when it seems as if the
shrieking will never stop.
Calming tactics that sometimes quiet colicy babies include:
Sheepskin. A cuddly cushion of wool can make a crib, car seat, or stroller cozier and
help your baby fall asleep more easily.
Soothing Sounds. Mother’s Heartbeat, Soft Music, Nature’s Sounds
Baby slings & carriers. This bears a mention, because it seems to succeed because
of the proximity of the baby to your body. Front carriers put the baby close to the
mother’s heartbeat approximating what it was used to in the womb.
Rhythmic motion. Repetitive movement such as rocking the baby in a cradle or in
your lap in a rocking chair often quiets a fussy baby. Often taking the baby for a ride in
an elevator or in an auto (in their car seat) will put them to sleep.
Comfort sucking. Babies have strong sucking needs unrelated to their need for food;
they simply find it comforting to hold something in their mouth. Offer the a pacifier.
This has been shown to prevent Sudden Infant Death.
Swaddling. Wrap your baby snugly in a lightweight blanket. This will not only make
them feel secure but will also inhibit the Moro reflex, their habit of flinging their arms
out and bringing them back when they are startled. This involuntary movement can
itself upset a colicky baby and make them cry.
Baby massage. In this traditional Indian practice, the baby is stroked in a continuous,
flowing movement from head to foot, using light stroking and deeper massage.
Mobiles & mirrors. Unbreakable reflective surfaces such as those that appear on
many baby toys can often capture and hold a fussy infant's attention.

Council have shown that when babies sleep on natural 100 % sheep's wool they
sleep more soundly and are less likely to toss, turn and wake up throughout the night.
