Colicky Baby? Try These Soothing Tips

Colic has to be one of the most frustrating and stressful conditions for new parents.

The causes of colic remain unknown, but the experts at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia say there are several things you can try to soothe a colicky, crying baby.

Make sure your baby is not hungry, but don’t force feed if the baby isn’t interested.
Babies like to see different views of the world, so change his position. Sit him or her up if lying down. Let your baby face forward if you are carrying or holding him/her facing your chest. Give your baby interesting things to look at: different shapes, colors, textures, and sizes.
Talk or sing softly to your baby.
Rock your baby.
Walk your baby.
Swaddle your baby in a blanket.
Try using a pacifier.
Place your baby in an infant swing on a slow setting.
Let your baby lay on his or her belly on your lap, and softly rub his or her back.
Go for a ride in the car. The motion of the car often soothes babies.
Try using something in your child’s room that makes a repetitive sound, such as a running a fan, using a wind-up toy, or playing heartbeat sounds.
Hold and cuddle your baby. Babies cannot be spoiled by too much attention. However, they can have problems later in life if they are ignored and their needs are not met as infants.
