It’s no secret that very young babies can’t talk well yet. So crying is the baby’s language that he uses to tell you something.
Through crying, a parent can know that the baby is hungry, tired or unhappy.
By learning to understand your baby’s “language,” you will see that the reasons for crying vary from case to case. With a little time and patience, you will soon understand what your baby wants from the first seconds of his discontent.
5 tips to soothe your child:
- First, find the reason for the crying;
Your child might be hungry or he needs a diaper change, or maybe he is bothered by colic and so on.
- Carry child in your arms and hold him to your breast;
When your baby cries for no reason, he probably wants to be held. If you are trying to soothe your baby at night, try holding him upright or in a rocking chair until he falls asleep. Any gentle stroking or vibration can be very soothing.
- Swaddle your baby;
One of the most helpful techniques for soothing a crying baby is swaddling. Make sure you don’t cover your baby’s head or overheat him or her. Don’t swaddle your baby too tightly: swaddling too tightly can interfere with your baby’s natural body position, breathing and circulation: your baby may not like it, which will cause him to cry.
- Give your kid a bottle or a pacifier;
Even if your kid isn’t hungry, it will help calm him down.
- Sway your baby to white noise;
Ideally, if you have a white noise generator. Then just turn it on and rock your baby to these soothing sounds.
