If your baby is well-rested, seems to feels fine, and you've recently fed and changed her, why the flip is she whining and crying?
Babies cry, whimper, and whine for all sorts of reasons. A major reason can be boredom.If everything else seems great, she may just be bored with her day. Try the following to ease baby boredom (and that whining).
- Get her out and about - go grocery shopping, head to the park, go to your library story time, or simply cruse the neighborhood.
- Take her to another room of the house. Sometimes babies spend too much time in one place - usually the living area or nursery. Take her into your bedroom and fold laundry while she explores.
- Create a bored day toy & book box. Highly interesting toys and books should be in the box, items your little one doesn't see each day. Take out said box when boredom strikes.
- Talk or sing to her. Studies show that babies are more social then we think. Just chatting with your baby can crush out boredom immediately.
