Mom Tip: How To Soothe Your Crying Baby

Posted on Jul 14 2010 - 4:52pm by Mommy Posh

How do you soothe your little one?

As of recently, my son has been screaming uncontrollably, especially at night.  Since I am a SAHM (stay at home mom) I feel responsible to sooth Lil B, but I too am exhausted from his day of screaming.  Any others mothers out there feel my pain?  of course, there are many reasons why my little one might be crying:

  • Hunger
  • A dirty diaper
  • Tired
  • Wants to be held
  • Tummy troubles (gas, colic, and more)
  • Needs to burp
  • Too cold or too hot
  • Teething
  • Wants less/more stimulation
  • Not feeling well

Of course babies have their own reason for crying and the above may not be true for your lil one, but I have learned that the only thing that seems to calm down Lil B was a blow-dryer! Its noise, distracted him long enough to calm him.  So for this reason I am glad I had one handy.  You should try it out and let us know if this or any other methods worked for your crying baby.

    Hair dryers, fan and sound machines work great. Some moms put the baby by the dryer in the infant seat or car seat. It’s the constant sound that seems to soothe. A sound machine set on ocean waves is what we use. We even have a little one that clips on to the stroller or car seat when we leave home so naps are not interruped by the loud world. We found it online. Sleepy Bee
