Is anyone familiar with the Gym ball for calming babies?

I heard from a friend that sitting on a gym ball while holding my baby, and slightly bouncing on it is an effective way for calming him and even assisting him in falling asleep.
Has anyone tried this? And opinions?

  • DS has worked w a yoga ball for @ a yr. He loves it. His PT will put him in prone and gently drum the ball. DS puts his ear against the vibration of the ball n luvs it. Its also good for balance (once they can sit down, sit them on da ball w ur hands on their hips)
