Inconsolable babies crying nonstop. Do you have any tricks to stop this?

Infant Colic: Sounds like infant colic when a bay is inconsolable. You may try motion, like going for a car ride, or basket on top of a washer or secured swing.

My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do ?

Keep him safe in car: At four months he is too young for a real temper tantrum. While he may get agitated by the car seat's restrictive environment, his safety in the car is paramount for him to be transported in any other way in the car.

Can babies get sore throats from crying?

Can babies get sore throats from crying?

Absolutely.: If you have ever attended an exciting football game and cheered vociferously for your team, the next morning (if not later that night!) you were probably hoarse and your throat was probably sore. Babies crying use the same basic equipment as your cheering. Obviously it requires rather forceful, red-faced crying (not just a whimper), usually with a waterfall of tears! resting the voice improves it. ...Read more
