Coping with a crying baby

Having a newborn baby can be exciting, magical … and stressful. When you are surviving on little or no sleep, are exhausted and trying to soothe a baby who seemingly will not stop crying can be difficult for anyone. 

If you can feel yourself getting stressed,  it's ok to put your baby in a safe place and walk away for a short time. Think ICON

I – Infant crying is normal

C – Comforting methods can help   

O – It’s OK to walk away   

N – Never, ever shake a baby   

Shaking a baby can cause brain damage, so please visit the ICON website for more information: https://iconcope.org/ 

Its always good to reach out if you need support speak to someone such as your family, friends, Midwife, Health Visitor or GP.
