Stress relief tips for caregivers

man with baby

Babies can be stressful. They cry. They get irritated. It can be hard to figure out why.

Stress is a leading reason why people shake babies, resulting in the baby’s death or serious injury. If you ever feel overwhelmed with an infant, try these tips:

– Realize it’s normal for babies to cry. It’s ok to set them inside their cribs, where they’re safe, and take a break for a few minutes.

– Find creative ways to soothe your baby, like dancing or singing.

– Get as much sleep as you can. Sleep when they sleep. Or take nap turns with your partner.
