Music, Books And DVDs
A baby is curious by nature and it is never too early to introduce music and books. Put some soothing tunes in the CD player of your car and drive around the block a few times to get a fussy baby to sleep. After doing this a few times, just play that same CD in their nursery and they will likely be calmed by the familiar music and no longer need the motion stimulus of the car. Start a bed time routine of reading a book to baby now and the toddler years will be much easier with this tradition already in place.
