Ideas to Entertain a Bored Toddler

By Stephanie Cummins

We asked the experts (other parents!) for tips on how to calm a fussy baby. The response we received was a treasure chest of creative ideas. Try one of our favorites the next time you have a fuss budget on your hands!

"The best thing to stop my baby from fussing was to squeak one of our dog toys while bouncing him on my knee. I'm not sure what it was about the squeaking sound, but he loved it." ~Miranda

"To calm fussy baby, I would put her in my sling and walk (to calm her) or RUN (to entertain her - this always makes her laugh.) around our kitchen-dining-living room circle. Over and over, around and around, and sometimes i keep showing her the same thing with each pass, talking either calmly (if walking) or excitedly (if running) depending on her mood and whether i want her to go to sleep. (think Chevy Chase in European Vacation at the Rotary - "Look kids, Parliament! Big Ben!")" ~Tighe

"Baby in the mirror works for me every time - I bring baby into the bathroom and let her look at her reflection. She goes from mad to laughing within a few seconds." ~Vick

Whether your baby has a regular "witching hour or just needs some occasional help settling down, you can never have too many creative ideas up your sleeve to try when the last trick no longer works!
