How can I soothe my baby?

Rocking, swinging, playing music or any number of things may be helpful in soothing your baby. Sometimes a baby just wants to be picked up or carried. In the first few months of life, you cannot “spoil” your newborn, so you must attempt to console in whatever way works. A great book or video called “The Happiest Baby on the Block,” by Dr. Harvey Karp gives great recommendations on ways to soothe crying babies and get them to sleep for longer intervals.
