  • Prop your little jetsetter in a front carrier and huddle him close while doing midmorning chores. Dr. Padua-Bautista says your familiar scent, heartbeat, and touch serve as a buffer to the abrupt change of situation or pace. “You’ll be stimulating your baby’s senses by taking him along as you fold clothes or tidy up the living room,” she adds, “So keeping him close reassures him and makes him feel secure.”
