Are you, like so many other families, struggling with a grumpy newborn? It hardly comes as a surprise that diaper changing time can be challenging for many babies. A great and simple way to distract a newborn in distress is to use attention grabbing graphics on the wall or anywhere close by to your baby.
Simple smiley faces have been distributed in Finland by the health authorities for years. The soothing images started as plain printed papers that you could tape on the wall, before becoming stickers given as a part of the very comprehensive maternity package (also known as the baby box) to all families with newborns.
The idea of the graphic is simple. As infants our vision is constantly improving. In the beginning we see everything mostly in black and white and extremely blurry. The first colors we learn to distinguish are red, yellow and green. As most things in our baby surroundings are mostly a blur, we tend to get distracted by strong contrasts and colors that we are close to us (and thus sharper than the background). Babies can also already from a very young age (2-3 days old and up) understand basic facial expressions like smiles and frowns.
The baby soothing stickers are effective for most 0-4 month old babies. After 4 to 5 months the eye has developed so far that the baby will be able to follow most things in her/his surroundings, making static images less interesting. At this time he/she will generally become more interested in movement and other sensory feelings like touch and bite.
Attach the sticker close to places where the baby spends time daily, these can be nappy changing stations, cribs or anywhere around the home where enjoy time with your newborn. Our stickers have a new kind of dot-based adhesive that will attach even on slightly rougher surfaces (they are also removable and re-positionable).
Make sure that the sticker is attached close enough for the baby to properly see it. We recommend around 30 cm from the baby with a clear line of sight.
Your newborn should show immediate interest towards the sticker, trying to mimic the facial expressions of it. Older babies will often also try to carry out discussions with the sticker. And most importantly for you, while the baby is distracted by the smiling sticker, you are free to change the diaper or clean in peace.
Absolutely perfect! Shipping was lightning fast & the first order/box was crushed by DHL. The Made of Sundays team immediately replaced the decal, no questions asked with a lovely handwritten note. Applying it was super easy and I appreciated the numbers included for well spaced out application of the decal. My husband and I enjoyed putting it up together & are so looking forward to seeing our little one in the nursery. I had friends ask if we had painted it because the look of the paper used is a gorgeous watercolour vibe - no way I’d paint anything this cute 😅.
I've ordered 4 times, they are THAT good.
Great quality stickers, easy to place with the help of numbered pieces. They look great and are always shipped quickly.
Très contente de ce magnifique sticker très simple à coller
Very satisfied with my order. The stickers are beautiful and easy to install! Great.
J’ai commandé les stickers avant mon départ en vacances, et grâce à un service mail ultra réactif, j’ai pu échanger avec Caroline qui s’est assurée que la commande n’arrive pas en mon absence.
Aujourd’hui je pose les stickers et le résultat est plus que sublime ! Les stickers sont de qualité et le rendu magnifique
J’ai aussi piqué votre idée et ai installées les fameuses peluches près du lit 🤩
Je suis ravie et je recommande 🎉
