Ways to soothe a cranky baby
The more time you spend with your child, the more you're going to know about what works and what doesn't. I have a checklist for Charlie and I always get down to what calms him down. Diaper, feed, burp, sleep, repeat. If that list doesn't do the trick it's almost always because he's just over stimulated. Nothing makes that boy more cranky than someone shoving a rattle in his face when he's tired. All babies are different so it will be trial and error until you have it down.
