|How To Soothe A Crying Baby by Omooba77: 7:19am On Jul 25, 2014|
Pacify him/her: Infants have a strong sucking instinct, so a pacifier can calm your colicky baby. Bonus: Studies show binkies may help prevent sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
Shhhh!: Making a shhh sound right in your colicky baby’s ear may calm her down. Don’t be timid — make sure your baby can hear you over her own racket.
Baby massage: The soothing power of your own touch can work wonders on a colicky baby. Many babies love skin-to-skin contact. And studies show infants who are massaged seem to cry less and sleep better. Just UnCloth your baby and use slow, firm strokes over her legs, arms, back, chest, and face. It may calm you down as well.
Shift positions: Parents tend to cradle a colicky baby face-up, but that may not help. Instead, hold her face down — with your hand under her belly and her head on your forearm. The pressure on her tummy can help relieve uncomfortable gas
Swaddling: To you, swaddling might feel like being in a straitjacket. But to a crying, fussy baby, it’s like being back in the womb. How tight do you wrap this baby burrito? Snug enough so he can’t wriggle his arms and legs free.
