Tips for Calming a Crying Baby

All babies cry. That is a fact of life. There is perhaps nothing more heart-wrenching and nerve-wracking than a wailing infant.  Watch this video for a few ways to help soothe your sweet little crying baby.

Each baby is different and has their own unique preferences, so you will have to try several methods to see which work best.
