Baby sign language is a popular practice among many parents today, making child rearing a very interesting and easy task than it used to be.
The ability to communicate at such an early stage with their babies is considered a wonderful gift and the bonding it creates between parent and child is immeasurable.
Try to identify why she is crying. Your baby uses crying to communicate with you that she is hungry, tired, bored, or is uncomfortable. If she sends out hunger cues, feed her.
She might also cry because of gas. Try burping her. If she is tired or sleepy, play some soothing music and rock her in your arms to get her to sleep.
Carry your baby in your arms or in a baby carrier. Studies show that babies who are carried at least 3 hours a day cry less than those who are not.
Each baby is different. You may have to try different methods or a combination of several methods to calm your baby.
For instance, some babies may respond to lullabies or rhymes, others might not.
Stick to one method for some time before switching to another.
Some babies do not respond well to the presence of too many people or too much noise. When your baby is colicky, it is best to keep her in a quiet environment with little stimulation, particularly in the early evening.
This means you can understand your babies better, which will lead to them crying less!
