Totally agree. And, if you go in, it A) undermines what he is trying to do, and B) erodes his confidence when she quiets down because you came in.

Next time, no matter how hard it is, close the door, turn on the TV, whatever to drown it out, and let him comfort her his way. It will be frustrating to you on the short term, but better for their relationship on the long term.
