How do you stop your baby from crying?

As long as your baby doesn't have a fever try the good old

rocking chair. Babies generally loved to be held close and rocked.

I've heard that some parents have had to take their baby for a

drive and the motion of the car has put them to sleep.

If the crying continues for more than 4 - 5 days it would be a

good idea to take the baby to the doctor to be sure there is

nothing wrong. Perhaps (if you are breast feeding) the baby isn't

getting enough milk, or, the baby could have colic, etc. See the

doctor!

I agree with the first answer, but I thought I'd contribute my

rules of thumb.

When a baby is crying and it seems like you're doing everything

imaginable but the crying won't subside, what you need to remember

is to relax..take a deep breath..and calm down. A baby can tell

when its caretaker is uneasy. They will reflect the emotion that

they feel coming from you. To answer this question, it honestly

depends on how old the baby is. But in general..ask yourself these

questions:

1.) How long has it been since the last time that they ate?

2.) Do they need to burp? They could have a lot of gas that will

make them cry for hours. If it's not a burp, the baby could be

crying because he/she has to poo. To some babies, this is painful,

or just a foreign feeling to them. Help them out by buying Mylicon

from walmart or any other grocery store. It eases the pain, and

allows the gas to pass through easier.

3.) how long has it been since you last changed your baby?

4.) Is the baby colic? Sometimes, babies will have extremely bad

acid reflux. This will make it burn their esophagus after they eat,

which in turn will make them want to eat more because it feels

better when the milk is going down. However, they will cry and cry

afterwards because it hurts. I would recommend not feeding them

just to sooth the pain. If this is the case, but some warm water

into a bottle with a teaspoon of cyro syrup (makes it kind of

sweet)..this should soothe them without hurting your breasts, and

without over feeding them which would lead to an upset stomach and

throw up.

5.) Is the baby sleepy? Rock the baby, sing to the baby, pat the

baby's bottom

6.) The baby just might want to be left alone (not really

alone). Lay the baby on a blanket on the floor; sit beside them and

let them see their surroundings. Some babies feel too smothered by

arms and want to be a little more free ((This depends on the age of

the baby; If you're speaking of a newborn, then this probably isn't

the way to go)).

And finally 7.) If this is a newborn that you're speaking of,

try swaddling the baby. They were cooped up for so long in the

fetal position, that it feels to them as if they are not safe and

secure if they are not wrapped tightly (not too tight).
