    ‘Magic Breathing’ Helps Even the Wildest Kids Calm Down

    ‘Magic Breathing’ Helps Even the Wildest Kids Calm Down

    Have you ever been so upset that someone told you to “take a deep breath”? When we are stressed, frightened or in pain, we automatically tighten up and hold our breath. Over time, that can lead to headaches, anxiety and even high blood pressure. Learning how to stay calm is a very important life skill. Unfortunately, many people in our culture never learn it (or can only calm by eating, sleeping, watching TV or using drugs and alcohol). Yet all...

    Why Babies and Toddlers Love Their Loveys — And You Should Too!

    Why Babies and Toddlers Love Their Loveys — And You Should Too!

    What is UP with loveys? Why do kids adore them so much? We all remember Linus in the Peanuts cartoon dragging his beloved blankie behind him. And Calvin had Hobbes the tiger, and Christopher Robin loved Winnie­-the-Pooh. Did you have a lovey when you were growing up? A blankie or teddy? If you or your partner carried around a Raggedy Ann until she was raggedy, your child will probably like one, too. That’s because falling in love with these cuddlies...

    How to Calm a VERY Fussy Baby

Think of turning on the calming reflex like getting someone’s attention. If a person is engaged in a heated argument, you may have to tap his shoulder several...

    A Trick for Getting Your Baby to Take a Pacifier

    A Trick for Getting Your Baby to Take a Pacifier

    Pacifiers can be a tricky thing, babies either love them or they hate them! If your baby resists taking the pacifier, try offering it when she relaxes, towards the end of a feed. But if that fails, try reverse psychology—a simple trick to get a baby to take a pacifier. I asked my patient Denise if her son, Aidan, liked pacifiers. She laughed and emptied a little sack onto the kitchen table. Six different pacifiers scattered across the tabletop, looking...

    What Is the Fourth Trimester?

    What Is the Fourth Trimester?

    A fourth trimester (the first 3 months of a baby's life) of cuddling is the birthday present your baby really wants! You may think your peaceful nursery offers your new baby the perfect environment, but from her point of view, your home feels like it's part wild Las Vegas casino...and part dark closet! I always tell my patients that babies are born too soon. I know what you’re thinking: Are you kidding? Too short?! For many moms, the last month...

    Is White Noise Bad for Babies' Ears?

    Is White Noise Bad for Babies' Ears?

    In 2014, a study of sound machines kicked up a lot of questions about white noise. Researchers tested 14 machines (marketed specifically for sleeping babies), placed 12 inches from the babies’ heads and cranked them to max volume. When they measured how much sound reached the baby, they found that 3 devices exceed 85 dB. The researchers warned that, if played at that intensity for 8 hours straight, that amount of noise (85 dB) would exceed safety standards and might reach a...
