How to get your baby to stop crying

Crying baby

The most important thing to do first is determine why your baby is crying. What does she want? Is she hungry? Afraid? Lonely? Does she have gas? Here are a few suggestions to soothe a crying baby:

  1. Offer a pacifier.
  2. Swaddling your baby in a blanket reminds her of the womb, so make her into a baby burrito.
  3. For gas pain, cradle your baby on her belly by wrapping your forearm across one shoulder, down the belly, and holding her bottom with your hand.
  4. Reduce stimulation by lowering lights, sounds, and smells.
  5. Introduce low-level white noise in the background with a vacuum cleaner, a fan, or radio static.
  6. Say, “Shhhhhhhh,” into the baby’s ear.
