Not without because your little one is fussy and crying. When a baby cries, it's a sign that something is making him uncomfortable. So, you should calm down as soon as possible.
Unfortunately, not a few parents are even confused about a baby who is suddenly crying and fussy. Then, what should parents do to calm the baby?
3 things you should do when your baby cries
1. Make a soothing sound
In the womb, the baby is accustomed to hearing the mother's heartbeat that has a constant constant sound. The heartbeat of the mother will be heard with the same rhythm and this will make the baby calm.
So, if at any time your little one cries, you can make or play a soothing sound. For example, attaching a baby to the chest, listening to the sound of raindrops, listening to the soft voice of the mother as a sleeper.
In addition, you can also try creating a "white noise" sound to calm the baby. "White nose" is a combination of sounds of various frequencies. Examples of white noise are fans, hair dryers, vacuum cleaners and white noise makers
2. Shake the baby
Most babies like to be gently swung. When the baby's body is swung slowly, cooler winds occur. This condition makes the baby more calm. You can swing the baby's body when the baby cries while:
- When traveling
- In a rocking chair
- Babies are placed in special swings
- Take a walk with baby basket
3. Try massage or rubbing the abdomen
Gentle massage can make a baby more calm. You can use massage oil specifically for babies. The oil used should be fragrance free and very light on baby's skin.
But remember, you also have to be careful when massaging your baby, wrong-wrong can be bad for him.
Sometimes, a crying baby also shows that he is hungry or feels uncomfortable because his diaper must be replaced. So, besides doing these three things, make sure you know what your little one is crying.
If your child is hungry, give him breast milk immediately. That way, usually the baby will stop crying after you suckle it.
