Is Your Infant Crying? Here Are 6 Things To Try That Won't Work

Is your infant crying uncontrollably and you would try next to anything to get them to stop? Have you been up all night and would just like a moment of peace and quiet?

Well, we’ve been there too, so we know a few tricks to use that will absolutely not work:

1) Diaper Change: Makes sense to try, but no. Still crying.

2) Warm Bottle: Nothing like a fresh bottle to appease your inconsolable ba—oh great that didn’t work either.

3) Burping: It’s gotta be trapped gas right? No. No, it is not. 

4) Swaddling and Rocking: Your baby is just a little cranky and simply needs a soft blanky and to be gently rocked to sleep. Nice try, but that just made everything worse! Now they’re hot AND their stomach is upset too!

6) Cry with them: Hey—if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em!
