At some point, every parent has a bad night with their baby. My 3rd child was the epitome of a colicky baby. He never slept and cried for hours on end. Looking back, I’m not sure how I survived those days and months. If you have a fussy baby, I wanted to share some of my tips for getting them unfussy!
Nurse the Baby
Although you don’t want a baby attached to you all of the time, sometimes nursing is the only thing that will keep your baby happy. Grab something to read or eat and let the baby nurse away. If you bottle feed, you can still feed your baby and hold them close.
Some babies just need a distraction from their tummy ache. Sometimes we turn on music or sing to our fussy baby. It usually works like a charm. The key is getting the baby calmed down enough to distract them. Sometimes a baby will go on and on for hours!
Bounce That Baby
When our son was colicky, we turned to bouncing to help alleviate his tummy issues. Something that we didn’t have, but would be great for an upset baby that needs bouncing is the Baby Bump™. It’s the ultimate baby gadget that every household with a baby needs. From the moment you open it, it can help you be a better parent!
