Babies, like adults, can also experience stress. Although it looks easy, stress on the baby could have an effect on their growth. When mothers discover these symptoms on the baby, it is obvious that the baby is under stress :
When babies show symptoms of stress, there are several techniques that can be done to make them cheerful.
Meet their basic needs
Babies can be stressful because their needs are not quickly met when they are hungry or thirsty. Give them necessary food or drink as soon as possible, do not let them cry too long. Also meet their needs for affection by carrying or touching them. Also do not leave them alone and mothers should immediately calm and comfort them as they cry.
Give them safe and sound environment
Environment here includes home environment and parents. Provide them a quiet neighborhood, away from the noise, clean and sedentary. Parents also do not often quarrel because babies can detect emotions and facial expressions of their parents. Parents who often quarrel will make babies stressed.
When mothers hire a caregiver, do not try to change them too often. Because changing the caregiver means changing parenting styles. When changing the caregiver, watch over the babysitter to see if she has been taking care of the baby with the means and methods that you approve. Babies will feel comfortable and safe with loving caregivers.
