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.

    Sounds great! I find Hayden cries more if she is overtired. I personally love using the Baby Shusher at times like that - it's a little device that makes a shushing noise over and over again. When I turn it on, it startles her just enough to grab her attention and make her stop crying, and then it lulls her to sleep very quickly.

      Sounds pretty much like what we did.
