  • If your baby cries for more than an hour its probably something else, thats where I would call the nurse

  • Go for a walk...the change in temperature might help. Run a vacuum or blowdryer. Most babies like the sound because it mimics all the sounds they heard while in the womb.

    Have you tried the 5 S's? Those always seem to work.


    Wrap or sling them and then do lunges.
    Good luck momma!!!!

  • 5 S's
    Swaddling. This is the art of snuggly wrapping your baby to provide warmth and security. Babies are often calmed when they are wrapped tightly as this sort of mimics the way the baby felt in the womb. Swaddling is one of the most effective ways to calm and quiet your fussy baby.

    * Side/Stomach position. You place your baby, while holding her, either on her left side to assist in digestion, or on her stomach to provide reassuring support.

    * Shushing. Most parents do this; they just don't do it loud enough. The shushing is the normal "shah" noise that we all instinctively make when a baby cries, but babies really do like this noise. This noise mimics the noise in the womb, so babies will feel calm and safe.

    * Swinging. Swinging, whether it's in the arms of the parent or in an infant swing.

  • How old?> My son had colic so he would do this in 3 hour spurts - I just cried and rocked him and rocked him and bounced him -not much you can really do.... the 5's worked sometimes so its worth a shot!!!

  • A warm bath?

  • Oh, I feel for you. I would try a ride in the car, a vibrating swing, putting the infant seat on the washing machine or dryer and turn it on if you don't have a vibrating swing.

    If that fails call the nurse, and see what they suggest. One time one of my boys scratched his cornea with a fingernail and it was only seen after they put dye drops in his eye and used a pen light to see it.

  • my daughter did that but she had uti problems as a young baby . so it may be something more to it and your child is trying to tell you its something. i would take the child to the drs. it could also be colic
