Create a Deep Pressure Low Stimulation Calming Hammock


While typically developing babies naturally respond positively to calming, slow movement, swaddling or being held tightly to receive deep pressure and gentle vestibular sensory stimulation- many children continue to benefit from this type of stimulation by using a cloth hammock such as the commercial one shown below or the homemade hammock made out of a sheet shown above. I recommend trying the sheet under table method first because there is no need to invest in hardware to attach it to a ceiling or stand- and if its a huge success you may always consider investing in a hammock that provides more movement.
