Have you ever heard of the Moro reflex? It is basically a startle reflex that happens when a baby fears they will fall or when they are startled by a loud noise. All babies will respond in exactly the same way - they will arch their back, stretch out their arms and cry. Following this they will close their fists and bring their hands to their chest. Believe it or not this can actually be seen in the third trimester - yes, they actually cry in the womb. What we also know is that when a baby experiences this reflex, they also go into fight or flight and their heart starts to race and their breathing gets faster. They are tending their muscles AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, when a baby is startled, they burn through enormous amounts of their very limited energy supply. In the womb the baby is protected from this massive expenditure or energy but outside the womb, they are not. "We don't want the baby to be startled too much, because then they are going into a severe energy depletion. So what we want to try to do with our babies over the first couple years of life, is create environments for them where we can minimize the kinds of things which will set them off into a startle reflex... Way before I worry about stimulating my baby, about teaching my baby, the first thing I am going to worry about is:does my baby feel safe and secure? And what can I do to enhance those feelings of safety and security? Because it is when they feel safe and secure that we don't see the startle." Dr.Stuart Shanker. This is really critical to consider when you are making decisions around sleep.

Thank you @mikeith.datx with @deadairsilencers for trusting your gear to TruckVault! .
“I want to take a minute to say thank you to @truckvault_usa . I am on the road constantly for work and this thing is a life-saver! Before I was constantly having to lug cases and cases of equipment into my hotel each night which was a task of multiple trips usually and an overall headache. Now I can rest assured that everything is safe and secure in the vehicle both over-night and between stops on the road. Not to mention, much more organized and easy to work with. The quality and security of what TruckVault puts out is second to none and is the go to system for military and government agencies like the FBI, DEA, and U.S. Marshals. When you need the best of the best, this is what you want. They will even put together a complete ground up custom unit fit to your specific needs! “
