whats the best ways to sooth an older baby/toddler?

my good friend is having a baby, and is very worried about not knowing how to calm her baby. i have been through all my usual things to tell her, and wondered if anyone else had any advice. i have suggested (keeping in mind bub isnt born yet-she is just very nervous!)
cuddling, distracting-ie taking them outside to look at the grass, trees etc, singing a song, ive even drawn a little face on my eldest daughters hand to distract her... :)
i wonder if anyone has any other tips i can pass along?

  • Well, at first, she will swaddle, feed, give a paci, rock....normal things, but by the time it's older, she will already know her baby and it's likes and needs.
