Did you ever notice that many babies tend to be calmer when they are being held close to the body? Sure, it sounds like a nice idea to hold a baby close for long periods of time but who has the time (or the arm strength) to hold a baby in their arms all day? A new mother probably does not (keep that in mind when shopping for that baby shower gift). Look into giving a baby sling as a new baby gift at the shower. Babies like being held so close because they are calmed by the rhythmic movement of breathing. By using a sling, a new mommy can keep the baby close and achieve the same results while keeping her arms free to do other things. Everybody wins and she'll be thanking you later!
