This is really a thing. The CBC reported on the study and offered advice to Canadians about swaddling, playing soft music, making shushing sounds to calm down a baby. Meanwhile, the study's lead researcher said he didn't want to give Canadian parents a complex or anything - really? - too late. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
