Mommy Needs To Vent
Monday, August 29, 2005
We all know adults encounter stress, but did you know playing and growing actually can stress your baby out also? You can actually help your baby relax as he encounters the stresses of the world by giving him some quiet time.
You can begin by finding a quiet place in your home. Play some quiet music or hum to your baby using syllables. Feel free to also give your baby a massage at the same time. Whatever you do, play quietly. Watch the ceiling fan or just help your baby gaze out a window. It is alright for your baby to babble and make noise during your quiet time. If he gets fussy, try to find another way to share quiet time, such as rocking or walking around the room.
My son and I share quiet time several times a day. I usually will lay him down before I change him into a new outfit and massage his feet and back. Then I will put his clothes on and we will just sit on the floor in his room. He likes to look at the things on his wall. His room is decorated in John Lennon and he loves to look at all the animals.
Everyone has a different approach to quiet time. Babies need it just like adults. Think about how stressed out we can be. Our world is a never ending challenge for a baby with so much to see and learn. Sometimes as a result our babies can become restless and frustrated. Next time your baby seems cranky, try giving him some of this quiet time to ease some of this stress.

I was searching for Elvis and somehow ended up in your blog, but you know I'm sure I saw him in a car lot yesterday, which is really strange because the last time I saw him was in the supermarket.
No honest really, he was right there in front of me, next to the steaks singing "Love me Tender".
He said to me (his lip was only slightly curled) "Boy, you need to get yourself a shiny, new lcd tv to go with that blue suede sofa of yours.
But Elvis said I, In the Ghetto nobody has a lcd tv .
Dude I'm All Shook Up said Elvis. I think I'll have me another cheeseburger.
Then I'm gonna go round and see Michael Jackson and we're gonna watch that waaaay cool surfing scene in Apocalypse Now on the lcdtv in the back of my Hummer.
And then he just walked out of the supermarket singing. . .
"You give me love and consolation,
You give me strength to carry on "
Strange day or what? :-)
