How to Deal with a Fussy Baby.

There are days when my daughter keeps me up with her crying and fussiness. Sometimes I feel like throwing her (LOL! Just Kidding). She cries after being fed, burped and cleaned (meaning diaper changed or bathed). A crying baby can be very intense and stressful. It can overwhelm you and make you react in a way you might not want to. We all go through that phase and some of us still don’t know how to deal with it.  These are a few things that have worked for me  when dealing with my fussy baby.

  • Take a deep breath.
  • Walk away. If it helps, leave your baby with someone else and go somewhere around the house where you can relax your mind for a bit.
  • Put some headphones on and listen to music for a few minutes.
  • A shower or bath can help relieve the stress.
  • Exercise. Yoga is extremely helpful to ease the stress.
  • Meditate
  • Go for a quick run or walk.

These are just a few tips.  Don’t feel like your a bad parent because you feel overwhelmed or stressed. It’s normal! These are things that come with being a human. Just remember to take a deep breath. All babies cry even after they’re fed, burped and cleaned. In the next post I’ll tell you a few tips on how to calm a crying and fussy baby.

Feel free to comment anything you did to help relieve your stress. 🙂

“I’m Pregnant!”: A Guy’s Point of View

  1. You need to have LOTS of  patience.
  2. Having a job is VERY important. Try to work as much hours as possible and stay focused.
  3. SAVE MONEY!! It comes in handy. (I myself should have been done it.)
  4. Be around your baby as much as possible cause they’re only small for a short period of time.
  5. Sleep when the baby is sleeping so that you won’t feel so tired.
  6. Try to get along with the mother of your child, cause some women won’t let you see your baby. (In other words treat her with the respect you would want your daughter to be given, or show your son how to treat a woman.)
