Today I wanted to talk about fussing babies. Have you ever felt like things are just not going your way? You're so frustrated because your baby is so fussy but you have no idea why? Here a couple tried and true tips i've done with my babies in the past.
1. Remain calm
Babies pick up on your emotional state quickly and if you are stressed, so will they be! Pull out the peace and calming essential oil, or one that works best for you to ground yourself.
2. Take a time out for yourself.
When you're dealing with other children at home too and a fussy baby, things can get stressful fast. Keep your cool and if you have to, put baby in a safe place for a few minutes with a locked door away from the other kids, and then do some deep breathing exercises- whatever you need to do to gather your feelings.
3. Ask a neighbor for help.
Sometimes just simply asking for help when you need it can be a lifesaver!!! We sometimes feel like we have failed if we can't figure out what's wrong, but this is NORMAL!!! You can and SHOULD ask for help when you need it the most. This can be so hard to admit that you are in over your head and that you need help, but its OK!
4. Ask yourself these questions.
First thing to ask yourself, is baby hungry? Second is, is baby tired? Third is, is baby gassy?
Then re-evaluate if you need, but sometimes it's just a basic need that you may be missing and its super simple! Sometimes it can be a deeper issue such as colic or mis-alignment Make sure you always check with your doctor if you have any concerns, mama knows best!
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a great day, and I hope these tips can help you in your near future!
