Feeding and patting on the back
Most of the times, babies cry when they are hungry and have not been fed properly. Feeding at the right time and after regular intervals can help your baby cry less. Patting on the back is one of the most soothing feelings for a baby as it can calm him down.
Babies must be covered with comfortable clothes. Uncomfortable or not properly stitched clothes can lead to irritation, which will make the baby cry. Add or remove cover if the baby is feeling hot or cold. Having the right kind of a temperature in the room is extremely important if you do not want your baby to cry more.
Your baby must have a proper sleep schedule. Smooth sleeping is essential for a baby to be happy and smiling. A child which does not have a proper sleeping routine is more likely to be cranky and can get irritated quite easily.
There must be a great level of communication between a baby and the parents. Sometimes the parents do not understand the reason behind a the anguish of the baby. You can teach your baby a sign language, which will help him communicate his message to you in a more efficient manner.
