with a
crying baby

Feeling stressed when babies cry? It’s normal.

When your baby cries, do you feel like every last nerve has been shot? 

It happens to the most patient and calm parent, and there’s nothing we can do about it – our brains are wired that way.

But what if that crying doesn’t stop? The effect it can have on a parent is real.

5 tips for parents

It’s easy to forget that there’s another important person in this scenario: you.

Here are some tips on how to stay calm when baby is crying and become a calmer parent.

1. Take a break

Put your baby in a safe place and give yourself a few minutes. Have something to eat, have a shower, or do something creative you enjoy

2. Practice breathing techniques

Do you get anxiety when your baby cries? You probably don’t realize, but when we’re panicked or stressed our breathing is often shallow. So try taking deep, even breaths in through your nose and out through your mouth. It sends a message to your nervous system that you’re safe.

3. Take a nap

It may sound obvious (and maybe impossible), but chances are you’re simply strung out. Speak with your partner and try to get a good night’s sleep. You’ll find that just one good night’s sleep can be a game changer.

4. Lean on friends or family

Try calling a friend or family member for a bit of support. Sometimes letting off steam is the ticket to resetting your brain and getting back some feeling of calm. And don’t be afraid to ask for help when you need it.

5. Try some noise-reducing earplugs

The sound of a baby crying can reach 120 dB (close to the noise intensity of a departing plane).

Noise-reducing earplugs can help to offer protection for your ears (and your sanity). They limit the volume of parenting while allowing you to hear everything that you need to.

Loop Engage Plus offer up to 21 dB of noise reduction with complete sound clarity, allowing you to focus on remaining present and calm.

Loop Quiet take the edge off parenting life by reducing noise levels by up to 27 dB. They’re perfect for that much-needed sleep, but don’t worry, you’ll be sure you hear them when you need to.
