How to stop a baby from screaming all the time

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

One of my twins developed her "voice" but sadly it was a high pitched scream. This went on for months driving me, a crazy AP momma, and DH insane. Nothing worked; soothing her, saying no, whispering, ignoring, redirecting...on and on. Well today I found it, THE HOLY GRAIL of screaming children!!! My friend told me that her mother used an old Indian trick to get her to stop screaming as a baby. Here it is, when ever baby screams you blow air gently in their face and when they stop you smile or coo at them. It totally works!!!

I'm glad it works for you! Doing that to my babe made her startle for a minute, hold her breath long enough to get bright red in the face and then carry on screaming....
