How to Calm Your Fussy Baby?
Babies cry in the first six months for about 45 minutes to 2 hours daily normally. It is normal for them to cry for food, sleep, and the change of diapers. In this situation, you need to calm your baby in a very gentle way.
Moreover, babies differ in personality. One thing that is calming for my baby can’t be calming for your baby but you will be able to know his personality with time.
First of all, you should make your baby feel secure by covering it in a soft blanket, holding it in your lap, or cuddling while walking in the house. You can also cover your baby in a blanket and put him in a swing. Mostly, babies want to change the stimulus, and they need you to change the surroundings. In this case, you should hold the baby and try to cuddle while taking a walk on the lawn. Or take the infant for a ride in the car or a stroller.
Babies feel calm and secure if you provide them with an environment like a womb. Playing some humming or heartbeat sound while cuddling with your infant can make them feel at ease. Gently rub the baby’s head to make him fall asleep or stroke his head or back while holding in your hands will make them feel calm. Avoid irritating sounds, dim the lights of the room or go to the other room. If you get to the point where you are frustrated or angry after all your efforts because of crying, it is time to take a break.
Try another family member or a trusted adult who knows babies well. If you are frustrated, you need to know that the baby is not mad or rejects you. Baby is trying to communicate with you by crying because crying is the only language your baby knows.
