When babies drink they need not only their mouth to do so they need their body too. In order to learn the process of sucking and swallowing often the full buddy is in demand. As an example: It helps almost all babies if they can put their hand on mom’s breast or on the bottle. Infants also drink more even and calm if their feet are not dangling in the air. Simply put your hand under the little feeds to give them a boundary. Parents who recognize and react on the babies needs can calm them down and prevent digestive problems.
