Others have wolves, lions or bears. My spirit animal is Donald Duck, who…
…squawks loudly and often.
…craves the limelight (and gets jealous when others have it).
…is chronically frustrated by just about everything.
…runs around a lot without ever really getting anywhere.
Zen for babies: finding your bliss
Hey, all you bundles of joy! It’s never too early to get in touch with your inner infant. These simple practices can help you “be all that you can be,” baby.
Strengthen your self-control
Close your eyes and focus on a positive intention, like “Just for today, I will wait at least 10 minutes after a diaper change before pooping again.”
Stop drinking milk before you’re full. Bite down hard and push away. (Bonus points if the nipple belongs to Mom!)
Inhabit a sacred space
Lie on your back in your crib. Stare at the mobile overhead and imagine how much it might fetch on eBay.
Use creative changes
Vary your routine. Stick your left hand inside your mouth one day, your right hand the next.
Move beyond the cliché babbling and “wah-wah-wahs.” Experiment with baboon hoots, machine-gun rasps and blood-curdling shrieks until you find your perfect mantra.
