Hi, I'm Erica in Salt Lake City, Utah, and I'm going to talk to you about how to let a baby "cry it out." One of the reasons why a baby might be fussy is because of gas, so please make sure that before you let your baby just cry that you take care of them and make sure that they are fed, that they are changed, and that they are not gassy, because that could be a major reason why they are fussy. If your baby is being fussy and they just need to have some space from you, lay them in the crib gently, play some quiet music, and make it a calming environment. Do not leave them in there more than a couple of minutes if they are screaming. It's not good if the baby is crying for longer than five minutes, because the baby will think that you have abandoned them. So, please don't leave your baby in there for too long. If you leave your baby laying there for too long they might get flat-head, or they could have other problems. So, don't let your baby cry it out for too long. Have them in there for a couple of minutes. Let them be there for three to five minutes. If they are still crying, take them out and try this all over again. Try playing with them, do some activities. If there any concerns that you might have, call your physician and let them know. They probably will have more tips or have you bring the baby in to check them out.
