How to get them to stop whining when the baby cries?

DS is 5 days old today. We have 5 dogs who are utterly fascinated by him. The only problem is they whine when DS cries. They're driving me bonkers!

  • There probably isn't much you can do about it but give it time. Once they see this will be a regualar thing, they'll stop.

  • Mine did the same for a few weeks. He was very nervous acting around the baby. It will stop they just have to get use to it.

  • I read somewhere to record the crying and play it to desensitize them. My Min-pin /Chihuahua mix still whines and my DD is 6 weeks.

  • it hurts their ears. You shouldn't let the baby cry for that long. Attend to the child and the whining (*and crying) will stop

  • The dogs are letting the baby know that they are there for him
