Babies cry. There’s no denying this fact; it’s the only form of communication they have! Deciphering which cry is which is the key, and understanding that not all crying is a bad thing is amazingly important as a parent.
Reasons for crying include:
The American Academy of Pediatrics recognizes that crying is a natural part of your baby’s day; they tell parents to expect their babies to cry. Newborns can and will often cry a total of one to four hours per day. No mother can console her child every time he cries, so don’t expect to be a miracle-worker and do what others cannot. Pay close attention to your baby’s cries and you’ll quickly be able to discern when he needs to be picked up & consoled, taken care of, or when he is better off left alone. Crying is a signal, not a judgment on your parenting skills!
