Nine (9) tips to calm a crying baby
One of the most frustrating challenges for a new parent is to calm his crying baby, especially if it has just been eaten, changed and cajoled. Fortunately, here are the best ways to help a crying newborn to calm down.
1) Wrap the baby in warm clothes
Your newborn likes to feel safe, like when he was in the womb. By wrapping him up and tying his arms to his sides, he will not cry, you will recreate that pleasant feeling that he enjoyed for nine comfortable months.
2) Use your own finger or a pacifier for baby
Babies like to suck; it is a natural reflex in newborns up to about three months. Some babies start sucking their thumbs while they are still in the womb, and for many newborns who suck their fingers and hands, a pacifier can be very soothing.
Often just put your finger clean and rinsed on his lips to trigger the reflex.
3) Make her change position
Your baby may have been well isolated in the stomach, but she was feeling a lot of movement.
Try moving her gently or swinging her from side to side when she needs help setting up.
4) Make some noise
Newborns come from a very noisy place – your body, where the sounds of the pumping heart, circulating blood and various other bodily functions can get a little noisy – they are often soothed by familiar noises and white noise.
5) Go outside
Not only does the movement and change of the environment help to calm your baby, but it will also help restore your calm.
6) Consider allergies
Some babies develop allergies to protein in milk, a key ingredient in many baby formulas, resulting in stomach pain and general irritability hence they cry!
If your baby repeatedly has symptoms such as loose stools, vomiting, gagging, and irritability, talk to your doctor.
7) Some baby games
Newborns are easily overwhelmed by new reality: noises, people, smells … modern life can be heavy for a kid!
The restless babies can quickly become inconsolable; the best way to calm your little one in this situation could be simply to play with him.
8) Control your diet
Stomach pain and gas can cause severe crying in infants; their digestive system still in development can make it difficult to treat certain foods that reach them through your breast milk.
Modifying your diet could relieve some gas and digestive discomfort. Always consult your doctor before making any changes.
Sometimes, distracting your little one will soothe him, almost as if you press the reset button. Be careful, however, as this could have the opposite effect on a baby too restless.
