​Calming a Fussy Baby - Boys Town Pediatrics Quick Tip

Dr. Heather Zimmerman, M.D.

How do I calm a fussy baby.​

Try white noise. Let the fan run or having a radio station on a channel that doesn't come in, so it's just a fuzz sound in the background, or go for motion. Babies love swaying motions. Even if you're just holding your baby in your arms but you can sway back and forth while you're holding them or put them in a swing or one of those vibrating seats that buzzes a little bit. They love that vibration.

A fussy baby can be stressful. Heather Zimmerman, M.D. at Boys Town Pediatrics - Pacific Street give tips on how to soothe a fussy baby. ​
