A lot of times when a baby is crying, it can mean they are hungry, tired, or wet.
Breastfeeding, if possible, is a great way to feed and bond with your baby. If you have tried to feed your baby, settle them down for a nap, or changed their diaper, and they are still fussy, there are other soothing activities you can try:
All of these techniques can work preventively if the soothing activities are done when the baby is not crying, rather than just in response to crying.
It’s important to remember that some things work some of the time, but nothing works all of the time. If you have tried all that you can and your baby continues to cry, and you feel yourself getting frustrated, the best thing you can do is to put the baby down in a safe place and walk away to take a break. Take a few minutes to calm yourself and take a break before you check on your baby.
