Baby Self-Soothing Tips & Creating a Safe Environment For Babies.
About Baby Self-Soothing
“They really do love Cuddle Squares… the girls are constantly rubbing them. They use their sense of touch… while they are sucking on the pacifier!” Kim; Ashland, Ohio
How "Comfort Objects" Like Cuddle Squares Help Babies
Self-soothing is an important developmental achievement for babies. Experts say that security blankets and other comfort objects can help babies begin to:
Find confidence and comfort on their own
View the outside world as less overwhelming
Move beyond the security of their parent's protection
Find reassurance when away from home (which is why comfort objects are common among children in daycare)
Learn to calm themselves with something familiar and unchanging
We think it’s important to share a few tips about creating a safe environment for babies from the CPSC, JPMA and AAP:
Remove all soft bedding and other soft items from the crib before placing a baby to sleep.
Always place your baby to sleep on his or her back to reduce the risk of SIDS.
Offer a pacifier at nap-time and bed-time throughout the first year of life.
