RE-CREATE THE WOMB Swaddle your sweetie in a blanket, place him on his side in your arms, and make a strong shushing noise close to his ear. Rock him gently and offer him something to suck on, such as a pacifier (or your breast, if it's mealtime).
ADJUST YOUR DIET If you're nursing or pumping, try eliminating dairy for a few weeks. Your baby may be sensitive to milk protein. Consider making an appointment with a lactation consultant, too, so she can verify that your milk supply isn't a problem.
