Breastfeeding depends on many factors and is not always available. But as early as 5,000 years ago, people began to make milk vessels specially adapted for babies. This is proved by the shape and traces of dairy products inside.
Comfort for the whole family
The baby cannot say what is bothering him, so you need to create the most comfortable conditions so that crying appears only as a signal of something important, and is not a false alarm. Therefore, the parents tried to console the baby, so as not to worry about how much in vain.
Do as I do
The best way to teach something is to show by example. In the literal sense, take a child’s hand and control it, showing movements. Most of the work of people in the Stone Age is manual work, so this was very relevant.
