🙄A screaming baby can cause extreme stress, especially when the baby cannot be comforted. Check out this extensive list of ideas to calm your emotions, occupy your mind, and keep yourself from losing control under the stress:

• Make sure all the baby’s basic needs (food, diapering, appropriate clothing, etc.) are met.
• Offer the baby a pacifier.
• Rock baby gently in the cradle.
• Walk baby around in a body carrier or just hold the baby close to you and walk around.
• Phone a friend.
• Call a friend, relative or neighbor to come over for support and/or take care of the baby while you take a break.
• Do something for yourself; play favorite music, make a cup of coffee or tea, exercise, take a shower/bath, or read a magazine or book.
• Change your activity: shake a rug, scrub a floor, throw away trash, or clean a closet.
• Splash water on your face.
• Hug a pillow.
• Sit down, close your eyes, think of a pleasant place in your memory. Do not move for several minutes.
• Press your lips together and count to 10. Better yet, count to 20.
• Write down as many helpful words as you can think of. Save the list.
• If all else fails, put the baby in their crib making sure they are safe, close the door, and check on them every 5 minutes or so.
