Video Clips of Calming Techniques

If you're having trouble remaining calm and the crying continues, try the techniques below. Sometimes combining a few of them is the key to helping you calm your crying baby.

If nothing seems to work, put your baby in a safe place -- an empty crib or bassinet -- and walk away for a few minutes. The baby will be fine. 

The time you spend away from the crying can help you calm down, so you’ll be better able to handle the situation when you come back – even if your baby keeps crying.
