  • I'm glad to hear that worked. My mother has "the touch." When she came over, and the babies were fussing, she was able to hold them, and they'd settle down. I could hold them but they'd continue to fuss. I never figured out what it was about her- maybe that she was confident that she could do it. One of my children we could help settle down by taking him for a ride in the car- but the other child hated the car.

  • We used to put our son in his swing in front of a Baby Einstein video. He was quiet and happy long enough for whatever needing doing.

  • Sleep! I have an 11 week old and he has been the fussiest baby ever and the doctor told me that he needs more sleep. So even now as soon as he starts to get fussy, if he is fed and clean I just put him down for a nap. I has saved my sanity! Try it out.

  • Buy a sling! ...that way you can carry him but you still have your hands free.

    and PLEASE do not turn on the TV for you 3 week old. many psychology experts for children are now suggesting that children under 2 should not have any viewing time.

  • My baby is 5 weeks old and he usually likes the swing. Sometimes that doesn't work though so I put him in my moby wrap. It works for both of us...he's happy because I'm carrying him but my hands are still free so I'm able to get stuff done.
