How to soothe a crying baby: The quickest way to soothe a crying baby is by learning to understand what your newborn baby is trying to communicate to you.
Newborn Babies cry - eat - and sleep - and that’s pretty much all they do for the first few weeks - and in no particular order either.
Remember, babies are not born polite - so they are not going to stop crying just because you’re new to all this - they will cry for as long as they want, and they won’t stop until it suits them to stop. Main thing is - don’t panic - don’t be frightened by your baby's crying - you can explain to them that you are busy trying to find out what the problem is (if that is your style), but go about your business trying to identify the problem - so that you can fix it.
New parents may ask how to make a baby stop crying but remember fussy babies are trying to let you know that something is bothering them - they need something and they are relying on you to provide it for them, and then - like magic - your fussy newborn will be soothed and most likely drift off to sleep in your arms - knowing they are safe in your care.
