What you’ll learn about babies crying: 

  • At first, the cry’s are about needing a change, needing to be fed, needing to sleep, or needing to be burped
  • Sometimes a baby just cries when you have tried everything, and it can get so frustrating
  • Taking them for a drive, pushing them around in the stroller, or just cuddle them can all work. But sometimes nothing works, and this is normal
  • As a parent of a crying baby, you can reach breaking point. Take some time away from the crying, take deep breaths, go back and try again
  • If all else fails then a trip to the doctor might be needed
  • After a few weeks you’ll get to know what the different cries mean
  • Being with baby can help you figure out what the cry’s mean. Sometimes they just need to be held
