HI the quality of this video is bad it flitters. But good segment

ooooops I did the 3 segments with baby first. Didn't realize these were the start. These make sense as a slow beginning. Though I had to do them with my fussy 5 month old so I used some of the tactics from the other videos. Would be great if there were some just for Mom and then some for you to do with your baby. Thanks this is so helpful
