Today, to calm the colic or the crying of the evening of the newborn, one rediscovers this tender, simple and ancestral gesture of rocking. Your baby loves ... and you too! What is the right technique, the pitfalls to avoid? All our advice.

  • One thing is certain: your baby loves to be rocked. These rhythmic movements seem to have a beneficial effect because they recreate in part the sensations he experienced when he was in your belly.

Baby rocking, an innate gesture

  • In collective imagery, rocking is linked to the image of motherhood. Little girls rock their dolls to "comfort" her or "because she does not want to sleep". Become mothers, the women take their baby in their arms and reproduce this gesture in an instinctive way with the certainty, rightly, that the rocking soothes, in case of crying in particular.
  • Each mother discovers alone, intuitively or with use, the gestures that reassure her child. One will take the paces by cradling him gently, the other will hold him against her and whisper sweet words to her, another will hum a little lullaby ...

Adopt the right tactics

  • The good rhythm? That of your heart. Studies have shown that the most effective rocking is between 60 and 70 oscillations per minute (close to the heartbeat at rest), of low amplitude.
  • Sweetness above all. Your actions should be done smoothly, in a timely fashion, especially not by shaking your baby energetically. it could be extremely dangerous.
