How to Soothe a Crying Baby?

How to Soothe a Crying Baby?

Babies cry. When they haven’t learned how to speak yet, crying is the only way they can communicate any of their discomfort with their parents or adults. Soothing a crying baby can get really difficult and even cause panic, especially when babies continue to cry for longer durations and one does not understand the reason for their discomfort or pain. 

Knowing why a baby is crying is the first step to soothe them. Hunger, soiled diaper, sleepiness, frustration, anxiety, change in temperature, new environment, pain or discomfort are some of the reasons a baby cries. 

  • Check for Basic Requirements 
    • Start by checking their diaper. Change it immediately if it is wet. 
    • Check the feeding schedule to see if it’s feeding time or if the baby is hungry because they did not drink as much milk previously as they usually do. Also, babies tend to be hungry after a good potty. 
    • See if the dress is causing them any irritation. If there is any change in the temperature or if the baby’s body is hot or cold. 
  • Check for Sickness
    • Check their body temperature using the baby’s digital thermometer. 
  • Cuddle, Massage
    • Did the baby wake up mid-sleep? Hold them close to your body and cuddle them. Whisper lullabies or words. 
    • Rub their back gently or massage their tummies in clockwise direction slowly and see if it is making them feel better. 
    • Rock the babies in your arms. The repetitive motion will lull them to sleep or calm them. The kangaroo curdle is usually recommended by doctors to rock babies.
  • Change the Surroundings
    • Changing the surroundings might make the babies feel better, especially if they were feeling stifled inside a room or a house. Distractions can go a long way in helping the child`s attention being diverted to a butterfly, a dog, a toy or any other comforting sight or sound.

Testimonials

We had hired a patient care attendant for my wife who was recuperating after a hip surgery and was completely bed ridden. Youcare carefully analyzed our requirement and understood the preferences and nature of my wife before attaching a caregiver to us. Our caregiver was very caring, punctual and always had a smile on her face. She not only attended to my wife`s needs but also encouraged her to become independent. Within 6 months my wife could actually start walking. I will really recommend YouCare to everyone in need of professional care services.

I have been a client with YouCare for the past 2 years. Their babysitter is now like a member of our family who we can trust and rely upon for taking care of each and every need of our 4 year old daughter. This is a professional organisation managed by well educated professionals wanting to do good work and provide exceptional services. Will certainly recommend to all working couples to reach out to them.
