If your baby is awake but not paying much attention to you, you can help him become more alert.
To help your baby become more alert, try these three techniques:
-If your baby is wrapped in a blanket, unwrap him. (If it's chilly unwrap just his arms.)
-Hold your baby in an upright position on your lap or shoulder.
-Talk to your baby. Change how fast you talk and the pitch of your voice. (Babies usually like high-pitched voices.)
-Hold your baby about 8 to 10 inches from your face.
-Talk to your baby.
-Hold your hand above your baby's eyes.
-Shade your baby's eyes from the lights.
