Re: 18 days old and really need help
Evening fussiness is often difficult to distinguish from hunger. If baby refuses to nurse, here are some things to try:
- White noise
- Calm house- turn off the lights, tv, and stereo
- Motion- rocking, swaying, bouncing, riding in car or stroller, etc.
- Closeness- snuggle baby in a sling
- Warm bath
- Take baby outside
Basically it's all about changing the sensory input. Of course, keep offering to nurse- eventually baby will decide to settle down and eat.
