Your baby is trying to tell you something that is why they are crying. A baby crying is the only form of communication for your bundle of joy. That sweet, lovable baby can turn into full-on gremlin in a fit of tears and is just craving for your attention.
A baby will cry a lot more during their first 3 months. The amount of crying may increase, and the crying time period may be from an hour to almost the whole day, and this could still be considered as being normal.
Some think that a baby cries a lot more during the afternoon due to the anxiousness of the mother or maybe because, by the afternoon, the stressy mood of the father is beginning to show.
One thing that is assumed is that babies have this automatic noise filter they use to filter out all the noise that may stimulate some response from them so that they can get enough sleep and rest. However, this filter is thought to fade out by about six weeks old. After the six weeks, it is believed that babies then become very sensitive to noise. How best can a baby react to these noises and movements?… yup crying!!!
There are many reasons why a baby will start crying and understanding these reasons is a significant milestone in parenting when you finally suss it out.
Here are some of the reasons why your baby may be crying.
This is a very obvious reason why your baby may be crying, but the baby is crying to let you know that their tummy is rumbling and this is a common reason for a baby to cry especially in the first few months of their lives. The pattern of the hunger cry could be characterised as being relatively persistent and demanding.
What can I say your baby is crying because they’re bored. How can a baby be bored? But they can be. Crying is their way of telling you “Hello, I’m here”. Babies need a lot of stimulation and entertainment, and when they don’t get this, you get crying. The trick is to pick your baby up and play with them as much as you can. Some parents disagree with this because of its mounting to spoiling the baby. However, keeping the baby occupied and entertained will keep them quieter. It is essential to know that stimulation is also one of the primary necessities of a baby. This boredom cry is said to be full of sobs and moans
Pain is another reason why a baby may be crying. Who won’t cry when they’re in pain, right? Babies are not bulletproof; they are little vulnerable human beings that need to be attended to when they have hurt themselves or when in an uncomfortable situation. This cry could be more persistent louder and more demanding shrieking and screaming, those of the words that best describe a crying pattern aroused by pain.
With me being a parent, I know when my little girl is in pain, and I rushed her attention generally because she’s fallen over banged their head or something however you will always know that pain cry.
Another cause for a baby crying could be a disturbance this could be caused by a loud noise or some movement, or simply your baby is ill and creates a bit of discomfort to a baby it is maybe the reason why your baby is bursting into a fit of tears.
Try not to get mad at your baby crying as they are only crying to tell you something so be patient and try and work out why they are crying.
