Isn't it funny what things will quiet and calm and fussy baby? I know for my son Jack the theme from Thomas and Friends would always snap him out of a bad mood.

My Dad told me that when I was a tiny baby they used to drive me around the block in the car to get me to go to sleep. What secret parenting tricks did you use to make those little ones feel better?
