Tips to Soothe Your Crying Baby

When your little one starts wailing, you won't always know why.

And when you've tried every trick in the book to calm a crying baby (singing, rocking, 3am vacuuming), it can feel like they'll never stop.

We look at the top 4 reasons why babies cry and check out some great tips and tricks to calm a crying baby.

Look out for lip smacking and hand-to-mouth movements.

Change nappies frequently to keep little bottoms clean and dry.

Being a little human is exhausting. Look out for yawning, arching backwards and fluttering eyelids.

Try a change of scenery or playtime with stimulating activity toys.

They're Still Crying. What Now?

Soothe your baby with these helpful tips and tricks:

Baby swings: gentle motion

Rocking and bouncing can calm a crying baby down quickly. But little ones are going to get bigger. Try our soothing gear for when your arms need a break.

White noise for babies: soothing sounds

Create a comforting cocoon with white noise or soft music to help your newborn settle into sleep. Soft sounds are great for soothing a baby at night.

Benefits of vibrations for your baby

Remind baby of the time they spent in mummy's tummy with the gentle vibrations of a bouncer.

Cuddle baby: heart to heart

Take time out for a comforting cuddle so that baby can feel your heartbeat.

Calming distractions

Give your baby something fun to focus on. A colourful mobile or a mirror can distract little thoughts and help them unwind.

Sucking and chewing

Help your baby to self-soothe with sucking. Try a pacifier for a newborn, or teething toys when their first pearly whites arrive.

Hands-free ways to calm your baby

Sometimes your baby just needs 'me' time (and you do too). Soothing gear like a swing or bouncer lets babies enjoy the motion and sounds that they love in a safe spot. Being a new human is exciting and overwhelming, but so is being a new parent. It might take a while to work out what each cry or little signal means (new babies don't come with a manual), but you'll get there.
