Try and try again
While you are learning what your baby will respond well to – when it comes to putting him to sleep, feeding time and even play time – don’t be afraid to try different techniques. If she is fussing while you are rocking her in your arms, try putting her up against your shoulder; if you put her down and she starts crying, offer her a pacifier or try putting her in the infant swing. While you are getting used to your babies likes and dislikes, you may need to test out several different things before you find what really makes her smile.
