My sister will just let the do whatever as long they stay latched on.. I will let them hold a stuffed animal at the most, but if they try to twist around or such they loose the booby.. If they are hungry enough, they'll settle down.


If your baby is too active and easily distracted try going to a room that's quiet without any distractions. Turn your phone on vibrate and shut any t.v. or radio off. Sing a lullaby or make soothing hush noises that might help. You can always wait a few minutes and try again once baby is calm.
