Don’t lose your cool.
Take the time to chill.
If you think the baby might be crying for a reason, you can try these techniques, but whatever you do, don’t lose your cool.
• Try feeding baby slowly, burping often.
• Check baby's diaper; change it if needed.
• Hold baby safely against your chest.
• Walk or rock the baby.
• Take baby for a ride in a stroller or car.
• Sing or play soft music to help soothe the baby.
There is no safe way to make a baby stop crying.
All babies cry.
STOP. THINK. WALK AWAY.
If you can’t take it, put the baby in a safe place and walk away.
TAKE A BREAK.
