Q:

You're in the store with a full cart and your baby starts crying frantically...what do you do?

  • Kristie says:
    Feel panicked at first, then try to soothe her. Take her out if I need to and rock her around in a quiet corner. If that doesn't work, do the best I can until I get out of there!

  • Louise says:
    pull a bottle, cup, snack, dummy or favorite toy out of my bag! im always prepared!!!

  • Amanda says:
    Cry with the baby? Usually keep shopping, and tend to the child. Eventually with movement of cart, my children would stop crying.

  • Katie says:
    Try and find something off the shelves to keep them entertained for a while.

  • Monique says:
    Try to calm them down some how.

  • Robin says:
    Let them cry. Sometimes I feel like crying in walmart too.

  • Courtney says:
    hold her and push her....and if that doesn't work there are:diaper change, bottle, pacifier, or I may just find a spot to hang a bit

  • Tasha says:
    try a bottle if they are still using it, check diaper (again if needed), pull out a snack...never fails

  • Kelly says:
    give her a pacifier or a bottle if I have one ready

  • Kerry says:
    Try to soothe them and try to get on with shopping

  • Chey says:
    Push the cart to the side and take the baby outside.

  • Emily says:
    Tell him to calm it down! But when he was in a baby, id pull over and take him out and rock him a bit

  • Deborah says:
    If I was by myself, I would give her what she needed and continue to shop. If Chris is with me, I would let him soothe her.

  • Misty says:
    Let them cry. If you give in, you are letting your child have his way, and everytime you go to the store they will do that. Other parents have gone through it to. Lots of strangers have told me that when my kids do that in the store. Or if they are really acting up leave your groceries and go home. Come back later.

  • Alma says:
    Give her a bottle/pacifier/toy. It all works or make funny faces .

    Let the baby cry. My theory, everyone was a baby once, everyone has been upset..... if they don't like it, oh well. I just have alot of patience and was blessed with a baby that didn't really act up alot, though I have babysat a few that have had colic and other problems that did throw some pretty good crying fits in stores with me.

  • Sarah says:

    Checkout why they are crying. If it's legit try to solve the issue, if it's whining leave the store It's not going to work anyway.

  • Danita says:
    Actually, I've been lucky, my son doesn't cry in public. He saves it for home. Of course he is only 7 months old so that may change, lol.

  • Angela says:
    Try talking to him / her firmly and if that fails, then buy whatever they want and it'll shut them up for a while. :D

  • mandi says:
    Take care of the issue but has never really been a problem.

  • Heather says:
    If we're talking Ethan and Elizabeth, I will kneel down to their level and try to work through the situation. If it's Meghan, I will pick her up. If that doesn't work, I head to the nearest check-out and pay for my things.

  • Shauna says:
    I would unload the cart onto the checkout belt and then take my daughter out of the carseat and hold her. She should quiet down and if she doesn't then everyone is just going to have to deal with it till we leave. Can't do too much because she is still quite young to be disciplined in any way

  • Charmaine says:
    try to comfort her with a dummy & her blankie.....settle back to sleep or offer a bottle

    Try to calm her down as best I can...I mean everyone else knows how you are feeling....

  • Marissa says:
    most likely the reason he's fussing or crying is cuz he wants out of the cart, so i will hand him something to distract him or get him out and hold him then he's fine

  • Terri'lee says:
    cuddle bub

  • Jamie says:
    pull my cart to the side pick up my baby and hold her...see what could be causig this..poopy diaper or hungry???

  • Lindsey says:
    well it depends on which one was crying....if it were Taylor i would just ask him whats wrong lol if it were jamey i would just scoop him out of the cart and carry him because thats all that is ever wrong with him...he always wants me to hold him

  • Tiffani says:
    I would just ask her whats wrong and If I don't understand what the heck shes talking about I usually just pick her up and give her lovins. That usually makes her feel better, or just give her her plug.

  • Jessica says:
    Give her a cookie or cracker or something.

    Let her do her thing. She can have her meltdown and snap out of it in a few minutes.

    Take him/her out and try to figure out what's causing it.

  • Holly says:
    Plan ahead. If I knew it was a big shopping trip, I either had someone watch the baby or split the trip up into smaller trips. If the baby starts to cry frantically, and cannot be settled, you may have to leave. If possible find a store employee to give your cart to and apologize?
