Have you ever noticed this with your baby?

My DH figured out that if he holds our daughters ear between his thumb and index finger and gently strokes it she will relax and fall asleep right away. Does anyone do the same or know why that works?

  • My mom did that with me, and my grandma would rub her baby's brows. It's just soothing and relaxing to them.

  • It's like there is a button on my dd forehead, when she is sleepy, I kiss her forehead, and her eyes just close.
