Baby is crying in bed, how do you make it stop?
Babies cry for a number of reasons. Some apparent, some not so. I have a mental check off list. Does the baby need a diaper? Is he hungry? Gassy? Those are the basics.. If Charlie is still crying after that I walk around with him and he always calms down. A bath always works every time. Spend as much time as possible with your baby and you will learn his or her signs and what is needed. If you start to feel overwhelmed, ask for help, put the baby in a safe place and walk away for a moment to gather yourself. If baby is crying nonstop or things seem off, call your pediatrician and tests can be conducted.
All babies are different and have their own special tricks for calming down. Avery loved it when I'd hold her on her back with her legs up agains my chest while stomping on the floor. The rhythm soothed her and I looked pretty silly!
