Soothing babies…

In the…‘no one ever told me that’ file…

Babies fuss.

Regardless of gestational age at birth, fussing usually increases at about two weeks after the due date, peaks at six weeks and gradually decreases till stable at three to four months.

At this age babies are better able to calm themselves. Some crying is normal.

But there are certainly some things you can do to help a baby calm down…One of them is swaddling the baby in a lightweight blanket.
