My next tip to Help Your Baby “Sleep Like a Baby” is to Relax! You are doing a Great Job!
Your instincts will help you a lot as a parent, and reading extra advice, in those spare moments while rocking your baby, is an added bonus.
(Of course, please ask your baby’s pediatrician every question you can think of during your baby’s check-ups, because they know best!)
When parents have me over for a Newborn Photo Shoot, I want them to be nice and relaxed.
Newborns generally respond to your energy, and therefore, the more relaxed and comfortable you are, the more likely they will be relaxed and ready to sleep during their session.
Tip # 4: Relax Yourself
The same is true at other times, too.
It’s normal, especially for first-time parents, to feel a little bit anxious and to second guess yourself.
Take a deep breath and trust that your instincts are good, and that you are doing an amazing job taking care of your baby. You and your baby will be happier because of it.
Many parents worry that their babies may not sleep through their newborn session. Well, that’s not a problem!
I’ve photographed babies that are wide awake the entire time. We can usually still achieve some amazing images, especially if they are wrapped.
You also don’t have to worry about crying. Babies are babies, and they will cry. I do everything I can to soothe and comfort them, and to surround them with a comfortable environment.
I want your Newborn Session to be a treasured memory, and I will do everything I can to make it relaxing and enjoyable.
