Use a timer to control the time in each position, donu2019t be tempted to go for longer if your baby is happy and settled
If a little one canu2019t tolerate 5 minutes in a position, start with 1-2 minutes and slowly increase time as able
Donu2019t stop treatment when a baby cries or fusses, try to distract or change position u2013 maybe use a song, or gentle hand clap to indicate when a position is finished
It is ok to stop before the time is up if your baby is very unsettled but make sure you use your song, or gentle hand clap so the baby knows you made the decision to stop, not them!
Some babies may be distracted by a short animation or DVD, or even singing or talking to them while they are doing pats to keep them happy.
