A baby is very receptive to body language. When they feel they are being handled with confidence then they are more comfortable. Allow your husband to spend more time with her without interrupting them. A little crying is fine and if he handles her thru a few such sessions he will gain confidence and will learn how to make things work. If you keep pitching in the confidence for him will never develop.

Hello Shradha, the baby is little and mostly crying at this stage is a sign of physical discomfort. The first thing to do is to rule out any physical discomfort that the baby might have. See if the baby feeds enough, check for gas, colic pain, and burping issues. check for any pain limbs etc.- all the above, by a pediatrician. If all OK, build pacifying rhythms where you sing or rock your baby to comfort. Your husband could follow the same rhythm too. This should help the baby, in case not, we can look for other solutions. Also, ensure that you are getting enough sleep and rest with the baby or else your fatigue and emotions affect the baby 's. Rest and nutrition for both baby and mom is equally important. :)
