Be Sensory Rich: appeal to your child’s senses.
Children and babies are sensitive to smell, and like most kids can be comforted by a familiar aroma. Babies are sensitive babies, they may be hypersensitive to stimulus. Providing a calm and nurturing environment for the baby may mean you need to incorporate soft lighting.
Be gentle, speak gently. The volume or activity level in your household may need to be turned down. Talk you your child. Encourage him to respond to the sound of our voice. Play music, sing, and recite poems or nursery rhymes.
