Context: Swinging «DQ»repetitive and rhythmic«DQ» movements are helpful because these provide a continuous stimulus. These methods are reported to be effective upon decreasing baby«SQ»s pains or cry. Aim: The purpose of this study was to determine the factors of the two different methods (rhythmic rocking of infants in the arm and rhythmic rocking infants on a blanket) on crying duration and colic as well as the factors affecting duration of crying with colic. Materials and Methods: A pre-test post-test quasi experimental model was used. Subjects included 72 infants (1-3 months) who had colic and their mothers. The infants were healthy and were delivered after full-term gestation. Results: It has been determined that as the duration of application increased (at the end of the second week), the crying duration of babies who were in each of the two groups decreased. Conclusion: It has been found that swinging ( rhythmic rocking) the infants on a blanket and in arm, decreased the colic and crying duration of infants.
