7 Essential Items to Calm a Fussy Infant

Everyone knows that babies tend to cry a lot. Usually they cry because they’re hungry, tired, need a diaper change, etc. Normally taking care of the need makes the crying stop, but sometimes you just can’t figure out what the cause. When nothing works, it can be frustrating! Fortunately, we have several products today that can help soothe colicky babies. These seven colic relief products can all be found at FefisBaby and will help soothe your fussy baby.

1. Happi Tummi

Happi Tummi consists of a waistband and herbal pouch containing lavender, chamomile, lemon grass, peppermint, spearmint, wheat and flax seed. When heated for 15 to 20 seconds, the herbs are activated to release healing properties which provide relief of most common stomach ailments including colic, gas, constipation, cramps, and bloating. It even calms the parent/ caregiver with lavender aromatherapy.

2. The Woombie Air(R)

The Woombie Air is the safest and most effective baby swaddle that requires no wrapping. It’s the first breathable baby swaddle that regulates baby’s body temperature by allowing excess heat to escape. All you do is put baby in and zip up; the unique peanut-shaped swaddle gently cocoons baby and the 4-way stretch bebeflex(TM) fabric enables baby to move naturally which helps protect against hip dysplasia. Baby’s arms are not pinned to the side; it prevents overheating; and there are no worries of dangerous, lose blankets unraveling and covering baby’s face. The Mom/Nurse invented Woombie Air re-creates the security and comfort baby felt in the womb and promotes longer periods of sleep from birth to 6 months (or when baby begins to roll).

3. Dexbaby Sound Sleeper

White noise is considered one of the most effective ways to soothe and prolong baby’s sleep. The Sound Sleeper has a combine mode to layer sounds and can play up to 34 sound combinations including sounds of the womb and a variety of nature sounds. This sound machine has a 60-minute timer, high-quality speaker, and volume that can be adjusted. Its compact size makes for easy travel and storage. (Note: make sure the volume is not too loud in order not to impair baby’s hearing.)

4. Moby Wrap

Babywearing is a great way to bond and soothe babies. The Moby Wrap ensures baby is uniquely close, mimicking the natural way of holding a baby and permitting skin-to-skin contact. Its design makes it comfortable to carry the baby’s weight because it uses the entire back as well as the shoulders. It distributes baby’s weight evenly on the shoulders and hips and aligns baby’s center of gravity as close to the body as possible.

5. Pond Symphony Crib Soother

A crib soother is a great tool when transitioning babies from bassinets to cribs. They are helpful not only for the nighttime routine but for also for naps. The Lamaze Pond Symphony Crib is a soft soother with colorful lights, classical melodies and nature sounds that also has the ability to be connected to an MP3 player for custom music (the lights dance to the beat of the music). And, it is child activated!
