    This is a home remedy the women in my family have used on their babies for centuries and they all swear it works miracles. If your baby is going through the “witching hour” simply dissolve 1 strand of Saffron (just enough to turn the water a pale yellow) and 1 tbsp of sugar in 1/4 cup of warm water. Be sure to test the water to make sure it is at room temperature before giving your baby a pacifier dipped in this mixture. Do this a couple times and your baby is GUARANTEED to fall asleep.

    One more thing to add…sometimes babies can be over-stimulated. They my want to be laid down and left alone. Try laying them down on a blanket in the floor or maybe they would like to be laid in their bed. Just because baby wanted to be rocked last night, he/she may not want to be rocked tonight.
