    Bathe then swaddle (wrap them tighly in a small receiving blanket). Newborns are used to a cramped environment and feel secure when swaddled.  Hold them firmly against your heart!   Works every time!

    They also like motion. I could always walk our two to sleep and that habit has been useful for times when they have been poorly since

    I always snuggled mine up in a blanket and rocked them. I have grandchildren and do the same for them, it seems to work well.
