Your little darling is able to soothe herself with the help of her thumb, a blanket or a stuffed toy. She does not show the need to be carried at all times. Your baby is now able to keep herself occupied as she is now getting more control over her hands.
What you need to know
The ability to self soothe is more to do with your child’s inborn temperament. Some children are naturally happy even when alone and do not need to be carried or held all the time. While on the other hand there are kids who can be soothed only when carried or rocked. For these kids their thumb or a toy does not hold any comfort.
