The Right Baby Hold Can Do the Trick

Dabe Murphy

Sometimes in the midst of your baby's wails, you'll find that a unique baby hold or body position does just the trick to calm her. There are many different positioning techniques you can try, from sitting her upright in your arm to Dr. William Sears' suggested "neck nestle". Part of learning which position works well to soothe your baby is about trying different positions and seeing how your baby responds. As the weeks progress and you get to know your baby better, you might find the exact position she likes.
