When soothed with four of the "5 S's" -- swaddling, side/stomach position, shushing sounds, swinging and sucking -- most babies stopped crying within 45 seconds of a vaccine injection, a study found. Researchers noted that babies who were given a sugar solution to relieve pain were still crying two minutes after the shot. The study was published in the journal Pediatrics.
