Soothing a crying baby

The period of PURPLE crying

Some tips for soothing a crying baby:

  • Feed your baby
  • Burp your baby
  • Give your baby a lukewarm bath
  • Massage your baby or provide skin to skin contact
  • Make eye contact with your baby and smile
  • Sing or hum softly
  • Go for a walk
  • Take your baby for a ride in the car
  • White noise (e.g) a vacuum cleaner in the background

Remember while many of these techniques will work, all babies are different.
