Transitioning Your Newborn into the World

The world is a big, bright, loud place, and bringing your newborn into it can take a lot of transition time. Your newborn baby is used to the quieter sounds, dim lighting and warm swaddle of the womb, so it can be quite jarring for them to suddenly be thrust into a loud, vivid world where they can no longer feel completely comfortable.
