Distract the toddler with an odd request. Toddlers often tend to cry for a lot of reasons. Whenever they cry, try to make them use their brain by making them think.
Don’t just show them a toy or simple household items. This won’t grab their attention especially when they are crying.
Ask them an odd question. Request them to do something else completely random. It is easy to make a baby focus on different things by making them think.
Ask something that can distract their mind. Here is a cute video of a toddler in action!
