Tips For Responding To Crying
| || || |
Crying Crying, difficult as it is to hear, is a normal way babies communicate hunger, discomfort, distress, or a need for your attention.
Most newborns reach a crying peak at about 6 weeks. Then their crying starts to decrease. Based on a typical crying pattern, babies usually only cry for about an hour a day after 3 months. But some babies cry more than average and/or may be very difficult to soothe and settle, due to their temperament or developmental stage.
There is not just one right way to soothe a baby. Some babies love to be rocked when upset. Others find that too stimulating and prefer to be walked slowly while in a baby carrier, snuggled close to a parent's chest. And some babies are calmed by being put down in a safe place where they can take a break from the intensity of the world.
