Even though it’s hard to watch and listen to your baby cry, sometimes the best thing you can do is let them calm down on his own.
If you’ve tried everything, and you know your baby isn’t hungry, sick or wet, sometimes you just have to let him cry it out.
Crying won’t hurt your baby and if you’ve done everything you can to make sure his needs are being met, it’s okay to let him cry. Place him in a safe place like a bassinet or a crib and let him cry it out. If you need to step out of the room for a minute or two, that’s okay, too. Many times a crying jag may seem like it’s been going on for hours when in reality it’s only been a few minutes. Taking a minute or two to calm yourself down will help you reset and realize that it’s only been a short time.
As your baby grows, it will become easier and easier to understand why each type of cry means and you’ll be able to meet his needs faster but there no such thing as a baby who never cries.
If your baby’s cry is distinctly different or if he cries for a long time, it might be time to call your healthcare professional.
