Finally, position the baby In a 45-degree angle and gently rock him. You can have your own way of rocking the baby as long as it just gentle. Take note of holding your baby secure but gently.

Repeat the rocking motion until the baby falls asleep. And that’s it! As seen in the video, after doing the above process, the fussy baby slowly calmed down and stopped crying.
