Fortunately there are ways to help solve this problem for even the fussiest of babies by using baby products that will help soothe and calm your baby when they get their fuss on.
#1 The Pacifer
There is a reason people have been using baby pacifiers for hundreds of years. It’ll chill your baby out.
Ever since the original “pacifier” which was actually a corn cob that was discovered to soothe and calm a young baby in the 1680s England, pacifiers have been a hit. True story. Definitely a must-have item on your soothing baby products checklist.
#2 Calming Ointments
There are a variety of baby ointments available that contain ingredients like vanilla and scents such as lavender, all known for their calming effects. When it is close to bedtime use your calming baby lotion to help your baby sleep while also keeping their skin moisturized through the night.
#3 Baby Swing and/or Bouncer
Swaddling your baby is one of the best ways to calm your baby. There are many great bouncers and swings out there to choose from, all with their different features, benefits and themes. I’d recommend the 4moms mamaRoo – a baby swing carefully designed to mimic a parent’s swaddling motions.
#4 Swaddling Blanket
A swaddling blanket that wraps around your baby has a great calming effect on your baby. Soft fabric wings hug baby close and securely which comforts most babies and reminds them of being inside the womb.
#5 Use a calming sound.
Being inside the womb is very noisy for a baby – all your digestive sounds and what have you get loud in there – so they are not used to quiet. Having an ambient, light sound can do wonders to soothe and calm your baby. A fan will do. You can also use a Sound Machine, a soother or light music.
#6 Slumber Bear / Sheep
The Bear comes with a sound box with four lullabies, plus white noise, ocean waves and womb sounds to soothe your baby. Recordable function allows parents to create their own soothing message or baby’s favorite sound. Winner of a number of industry awards, the Sleep Sheep offers four soothing sounds including the Mother’s Heartbeat.
#7 Discomfort Relief
It may be that your baby is experiencing gas, teething, skin irritation or some other body discomfort. If after trying to burp your baby they are still having discomfort they may have excessive gas. If need be Babies Magic Tea and Little Remedies Tummys Gas Relief Drops can work magic. For teething discomfort, Sophie the Giraffe is the best.
These calming baby products are sure to save you some headache and long hours of the night so you won’t lose all your beauty rest.
