New Babies are Learning to Deal with their Physiology
Coming into the world is a brand new experience for babies who have to learn to recognize the strange physical sensations they are experiencing for the first time. Babies can feel uncomfortable with these new physical sensations, and sometimes it’s hard for their digestive systems to work easily. They gain confidence through a positive relationship with caregivers.
