It's so lovely to see how much your little bundle of joy loves to be rocked. Rocking your baby is a gentle practice that has been passed down from generation to generation.
Here are a few tips to take on board to make the moment extra special:
Comfort and care
Rocking your baby is a very special moment shared between mother and baby. It evokes a raft of feelings for your little one, full of comfort, tenderness, warmth and security. It actually takes them back to the time they spent in mum's tummy. Such feelings are beneficial for babies, and are truly hard to find anywhere else.
Finding your rhythm
As they grow up, babies develop their own particular preferences. Some will always want to be rocked in your arms, while others will prefer alternative positions. Some like to hear a little lullaby, while others would rather you murmured sweet nothings into their ear.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different styles, your fussy customer will be sure to let you know if they don’t like it.
Mum knows best
When it comes to tenderness, trust your instincts. You’ll find the right balance of tenderness and affection that works for you and your little one. Remember the more gentle and calm you are the better, your baby will feel it too.
