Many new moms that I see in private practice have the same question: "how do I soothe my crying baby?" Some great techniques include swaddling (since it mimics being in the womb), non-nutritive sucking (pacifier use, thumb sucking, or offering a finger for your baby to suck on), wearing your baby and walking around (calms baby with closeness and the rhythm of your steps), rocking (in your arms or a rocking chair), white noise (vacuum cleaner, hair dryer, or fan), singing a lullaby, bathing your baby (using lavender or chamomile), or massage. These are classic techniques that really work. Do you have any new ways to calm your baby?
