Babies that are Carried Cry Less

September 13th, 2018

Carrying your baby more reduces the amount of time that babies spend crying.  This is especially beneficial at 6 weeks of age when babies tend to be the fussiest.  If you hold your baby for an additional 2 hours, your baby will cry for 1 hour less.
