Cuddles and motion
Babies are often soothed when cuddled or held close to a parent’s chest and heartbeat, since they are reminiscent of the comfort and safety of the womb. Walking, rocking and movement are very comforting to most infants.
Keep Your Baby in a Routine
It is important that you stick to your child’s feeding and sleeping ritual. Babies who follow a routine are less likely to be tired and over stimulated and less likely to suffer from colic. Feed your baby, change your baby and bathe your baby at the same time every day. Infants respond very well to a regular routine.
Take Your Baby for a Walk in the Pram
Take a walk outdoors to a calming place like the park, which can help you relax too. The movement of the pram might be soothing for your baby.
Place a warm towel or compress on the baby’s stomach while he/she is crying. The warm temperature provides relief from the trapped gas and soothes the pain.
