Keep Your Cool When Baby Cries

All babies cry — sometimes for a long time, and sometimes at the wrong time. When you feel like you’re about to lose your mind from the crying:

  • Make sure the baby is safe — in his or her crib, on his or her back.
  • Make sure the baby isn’t hungry, sick or in need of a diaper change.
  • Then, step away for a few minutes if you have to. Or call someone for help.
Have a plan like Greg’s:
  1. Step outside and walk around the yard.
  2. Play some tunes to chill myself and the baby.
  3. Call a friend or my mom for advice.

What’s your plan? Write it down.
