Soothe Crying Baby

It is a form of communication and for their first few months, the only form of communication your baby is really good at. Unfortunately, a crying baby can make many people uneasy, including mom. Finding ways to soothe a crying baby may help reduce tension and frustration and help baby rest easier.

Understand the Different Cries That Baby Makes and Reasons Why They Cry

Babies cry for many reasons. They can be tired, hungry, not feeling well, needing comfort or overstimulated. In time, you will learn what your baby’s cries mean and will be able to address them accordingly.

If baby is crying because she is hungry, you would simply feed her. For all other cries, the solution is not as simple. If she is crying because she doesn’t feel well, she won’t be able to really tell you how she feels and it won’t be easy treating her. If she is tired, she may have a hard time falling asleep. If she needs comfort, a simple hug may work or she may need to be rocked to sleep.  Continue Reading… How to Soothe a Crying Baby

Best Shortbread Cookie Recipe

I have been making this recipe for years and it’s been in my family for over five decades. Simple and easy to make, these shortbread cookies are made by hand and you can decorate them many different ways.

Recipe for Really Good Shortbread Cookies

  • 1/2 lb softened butter
  • 2 cups flour
  • 6 Tablespoons icing sugar

Mix flour and icing sugar in a bowl. Knead in softened butter until dough is firm and no longer crumbly. If the dough is very soft, as can be the case if your kitchen is warm, form into balls and put into fridge to harden up a little.

Sprinkle some icing sugar onto counter or table and roll dough out to approximately 1/4 of an inch thick. Cut into shapes with cookie cutters and use a spatula to lift cookies onto baking sheet. Baking sheet will not need to be greased. Continue Reading… Best Shortbread Recipe: Good Holiday Shortbread Cookies
