Tips For Crying

Tips for crying solutions!
If only your baby could tell you what’s wrong when he’s wailing. That day will come… but in the meantime, here are some possibilities to consider:⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
HUNGER. This is the most obvious consideration. But don’t assume hunger is the issue without at least considering other possibilities especially if your baby just ate. Rooting may mean hunger but it also may mean your baby needs a pacifier. ⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
PAIN. Have you heard of a hair tourniquet? This is always something that needs to be considered when a baby won’t settle. Strip him down and check his hands, feet, and even penis to rule this out. More obvious considerations such as a ‘dirty’ diaper also need to be considered. I like to see a baby in my office if a baby won’t stop crying and all the usual comfort steps aren’t working.⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
TIRED. Keep your eye on the clock and consider fatigue when your baby won’t settle. ⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
SICK. A baby who isn’t feeling well will often be unconsolable. Take a baby’s temperature if crying is out of character.⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
FRUSTRATED. Babies don’t have the words to express feelings and therefore they come out in their behavior. ⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
NEEDS A CUDDLE. Some babies want to be cuddled constantly and will let you know they’re not happy when you try and put them down.⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
BORED. Yes…babies do get bored! Go out for a walk or try even going into a different room to change things up. ⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
OVERWHELMED. Babies can get over-stimulated and need a moment to unwind. Sometimes going into a quiet, dark room or even putting your baby down for a moment can help calm a baby’s nerves. ⁣⁣
•⁣⁣⁣
Before you can read your baby’s cries…how can you determine why your little guy is crying?
