Is your baby crying?
Never shake a baby!
Shaking can cause permanent brain damage, coma and even death. Step away. Take a break.
Check the basics
Are they thirsty? Give a bottle. Are they wet? Change a diaper. Do they have gas? Burp them. Are they too warm? Take a sweater off. Are they too cool? Put a sweater on.
Rocking, walking, baby wearing, car rides (in a car seat, backwards facing), white noice (fan or vacuum), a pacifier, soft music, or a stroller ride may help.
