Babies cry and this is a good thing,as it gives us the indication about the feelings of our babies either they feel hunger, loneliness or else. However this gives areal hard times to the parents. In this article you can learn how you can soothe your babies easily and makes your lives comfortable.

  1. Swaddling:

    Swaddling recreates the snug packaging inside the womb and is the cornerstone of calming. It decreases startling and increases sleep. And, wrapped babies respond faster to the other 4 S’s and stay soothed longer because their arms can’t wriggle around.

    To wrap arms snug—straight at the side—but let the hips be loose and flexed. Use a large square blanket, but don’t overheat, cover your baby’s head or allow unraveling. Note: Babies shouldn’t be swaddled all day, just during fussing and sleep.
  2. Holding Position of Baby:

    The back is the only safe position for sleeping, but it’s the worst position for calming fussiness. This S can be activated by holding a baby on her side, on her stomach or over your shoulder. You’ll see your baby mellow in no time.
  3. Silence:

    Contrary to myth, babies don’t need total silence to sleep. In the womb, the sound of the blood flow is a shush louder than a vacuum cleaner! But, not all white noise is created equal. Hissy fans and ocean sounds often fail because they lack the womb’s rumble quality. These sounds are necessary to relax the baby.
  4. Baby Swing:

    Life in the womb is very jiggly. While slow rocking is fine for keeping quiet babies calm, you need to use fast, tiny motions to soothe a crying infant mid-squawk. To do it, always support the head/neck, keep your motions small; and move no more than 1 inch back and forth.
  5. Baby Feeder:

    Sucking is “the icing on the cake” of calming. Many fussy babies relax into a deep tranquility when they suck.
