    As a first time mum, im not really sure on best ways to settle LO when he gets really stressed. MIL just ended up taking him off me other day, and she actually settled him. Which kind of got to me really. But i suppose its just down to her having more experience.

    So i just wondered for mummy's with more experience whats ur best ways of settling LO??

    Boob or bouncing a bit works for me depending on what the cry is for.

    If someone else settles your baby, it's not because they have the magic touch, it's just because they don't smell like mummy and so the LO stops trying it on :winkwink:

    If I know LO is not hungry or dirty etc, then I use his dummy to calm him down, or walk with him in a moby wrap type sling.
