Learn How to Be Chill When Babies Cry

Last updated January 8, 2020

Sometimes babies just cry.

Don’t lose your cool. Take the time to chill.

Remember: all babies cry. If you think the baby might be crying for a reason, you can try these techniques:

  • 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.

Here are some tips to try if the baby won’t stop crying:

Stop. Think. Walk away. If you can’t take it, put the baby in a safe place and walk away.

Take a break. Call or text a friend to ask for their help.
