    I have found the perfect rock method...It puts to sleep even a baby trying to wiggle out your arms crying. Stand up cradle baby in your arms. turn from side to side with your waist. your waist down should not move. Do it at a consistant speed. If it doesnt work do it faster. (not insanely fast) Baby cant help but to close eyes after a minute. I can usually count to 50 then shes out. It wont hurt to try it! good luck. Just remember when you are up, a million other moms are up with you doing the same thing!

    If you've tried everything and the baby is still fussy its time for a nap. Wrap the baby up, and place it in the crib while still awake and let the baby fall asleep. Here's more about crying:

    I think its important to make a distinction between abnormal and normal crying.

    Abnormal crying times include: during feedings, immediately after feedings, and times when a baby wakes early out of a sound nap. Crying during these times requires attention, and child should not be allowed to "cry it out"

    Normal crying times include: just before a feeding, when a baby is put down for a nap, and during the late afternoon/early evening period. The type of crying you are asking about is when going down for a nap. The duration of this type of crying is set by the child, but monitored by the parent. The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes that: "Many babies cannot fall asleep without crying and will go to sleep more quickly if left to cry for a while. The crying shouldn't last long if the child is truly tired."

    It is not unusual for a sleeping baby to occassionally begin whimpering or crying softly in the middle of a nap. Again, the words of the American Academy of Pediatrics are helpful in understanding what is going on. "Sometimes you may think your baby is waking up when she's actually going through a phase of very light slumber. She could be squirming, startling, fussing, or even crying--and still be asleep. Or she may be awake but on the verge of drifting off again if left alone. Don't make the mistake of trying to comfort her during these moments; you'll only awaken her further and delay her going back to sleep. Instead, if you let her fuss and even cry for a few minutes, she'll learn to get herself to sleep without relying on you." The Academy goes on to say that "some babies actually need to let off energy by crying in order to settle into sleep or rouse themselves out of it. As much as fifteen to twenty minutes of fussing won't do you child any harm. Just be sure she's not crying out of hunger or pain, or because her diaper is wet."

    Identifying and knowing your baby's cry patterns and disposition (personal style) will hepl you learn to discern real needs.

    This is for babies as young as a couple of weeks old

    Try laying the baby over your knees on its stomach, sounds like gas...which could be colic ...gently bounce your legs and rub or pat on the back...

    If this does not work tomorrow call your doctors office and ask for a check up to see if it is colic...if it is they make drops for suffering little ones now {not when I had mine ugh}...

    best wishes

    Sounds like a tummy ache. Sit the baby on your lap, bend it slightly over your arm and pat gently on it's back. Take it to the dr if it continues. It may have colic, etc.

    sing to the baby, put the baby in a swing, swaddle the baby, burp the baby, try gas drops, see the doctor- if you are upset or frustrated IT IS OK TO PUT THE BABY DOWN AND LEAVE THE ROOM.

    Give yourself a calm-down period. It's never OK to shake a baby.

    My method was lying down with the baby laying on your chest. Babies are used to the sound of the mothers heartbeat, and with me, it soothed my daughter right to sleep.

    Good Luck

    How old is the baby, do you think it's in pain? I always found walking around the house humming worked well for me and my kids.

    Rub the gums because it is probably teething. You might also take it for a ride in the buggy or the car.
