As a rule, babies imme­di­ate­ly stop cry­ing if you pick them up. How­ev­er, you should not con­stant­ly calm the baby in this way — oth­er­wise you will quick­ly accus­tom him to a kind of manip­u­la­tion. It is believed that in order to take a child in his arms, there must be a good rea­son — in any case, such “man­u­al” com­mu­ni­ca­tion with the baby should not be the result of his cry­ing.

More­over, you are unlike­ly to be able to calm­ly go about your busi­ness if the baby gets used to con­stant­ly being in your arms. You can teach your baby to be dis­tract­ed in oth­er ways — with the help of toys, books, and so on.

As soon as the child begins to act up, you can try to shake the crib or give him a paci­fi­er — you should take it in your arms only after all the pre­vi­ous meth­ods have been tried. In addi­tion, you need to learn to dis­tin­guish between whim cry­ing and cry­ing for help. What are the rea­sons why a new­born may cry? Keep in mind that the inter­vals between feed­ings should not be more than three hours, then you will avoid cry­ing due to hunger. The baby may be cold, then it should be dressed warmer. In addi­tion, the child can get tired very quick­ly, then he needs not only to calm down, but also to lull. Babies up to four months of age often have col­ic — to avoid this, a nurs­ing moth­er should eat right. Phys­i­cal dis­com­fort can also cause cry­ing, so be sure to change your baby’s dia­per often.

If there are no vis­i­ble rea­sons for cry­ing, then try to offer the baby a bright toy that can cap­ti­vate him. If you prac­tice firm­ness in rela­tion to the crumbs, then do not over­do it so that the baby does not feel unnec­es­sary. After all, prob­lems due to such detach­ment of par­ents can appear already at an old­er age.

In the process of wean­ing a child from hands, firm­ness and patience will help you. Try to go to anoth­er room if the crumbs start hys­ter­i­cal. You can also try a lit­tle trick — take the baby so that he is uncom­fort­able and he will stop ask­ing to be held. Of course, you can pet and hug the baby with­out tak­ing him in your arms. After all, oth­er­wise he will get used to it and will sim­ply begin to call his par­ents to him with the help of cry­ing. In addi­tion, the con­stant pres­ence of par­ents in their arms deprives the child of inde­pen­dence and the oppor­tu­ni­ty to learn about this world with­out some­one’s help. So parental firm­ness in this mat­ter will only ben­e­fit.
