I wrote this as a lullaby mothers (and/or fathers) could sing or just recite to their baby when he or she is crying. All babies go through a period of being fussy or crying in the first few months. If it's severe, it's often called colic but I prefer calling it the Period of Purple Crying. You can read more about that here.
Obviously, this is only what you will do when you know your baby is not unwell in any way. If you are unsure of whether your baby is unwell, then check out this checklist on Baby Medical Questions and Answers - click here.
The reasons I think this lullaby works include the following:
- baby's respond to the rhythmic sound
- it helps the parent remain in the moment which creates a solid rather energy for your baby (rather than a scattered one)
- it sets the intention that things are going to improve
- the message is a positive one for both you and your baby
