Babies can be so sweet, but we also know they cry. Sometimes hearing a baby cry can get very overwhelming. No matter how frustrated you get, NEVER EVER SHAKE A BABY! A baby can have serious damage to the brain, eyesight and could even die from being shaken.
Instead, do the following:
Make sure your baby is fed, changed and comfortable
Try patting the baby’s back, or holding the baby against your chest and rock gently
Try moving your baby in another room or putting on some soft music
If you get too frustrated, it is important for you to take care of yourself.
Put your baby down in a safe place and take a break.
Leave the room
