Hold Your Baby

Understandably, babies can get very fussy when they just want to be held. Feeling supported in your arms and hearing your heartbeat can work wonders for calming your baby and easing their colic. Skin-to-skin contact also helps to aid in your baby’s digestion to relieve discomfort due to gas.
