I agree with this. If you find yourself getting frustrated, do this until you can calm down. A baby never died of crying, but frustrated parents injure their babies all the time.
Quoting kirstina:If you need lay him down in safe place and walk away until you can calm. Go back and swaddle him. Turn on white noise (vacuum, the radio in between stations) rock him. Good luck.
Quoting erikays:How old is he? Maybe he's teething or gassy?
Quoting jhslove:How old is he?
How old is he?
Ah I'm glad! I know how upsetting it can be, when you dont know whats wrong.
Quoting sissy852:he finally calmed down. Thank you
Glad he calmed down. If he has congestion with his cold, it's going to aggrevate his reflux.
At that age, doc's usually don't want them cryingnon-stop more than an hour. If he does it again while he has the cold, put a call in to the doc and see if he needs some maalox or something to calm down the acid.
