Soothing a crying baby


If you have met your baby’s needs and she is still crying, try these suggestions:

1) Offer a soft voice and comforting touches

2) Rock her continuously, lying across your lap

3) Swaddle her in a warm soft blanket with her head uncovered

4) Give her something to suck on, like a finger or pacifier.

5) Give her a warm bath

6) Go for a walk or ride with her to get some fresh air

7) Take a time out for yourself and get help if you need to
