I swoop him up, walk around the house and look at pictures on the wall and tell him stories. Granted he's only 13 weeks old and has no clue what I'm saying, but the movement relaxes him and the stories remind me that it's all part of mommyhood. When he settles down I feel accomplished, like I actually know what I'm doing (hah!). That confidence goes a long way, and nobody can be angry while wearing their mommy cape :)


A new baby can be taxing on a mom. Remember to take some deep breaths when baby is driving you nuts. Put them in a swing or bouncer and hopefully this will give them some playtime and you some relaxation!
