A Crying Baby May Mean 7 Things
Live in nanny: A Crying Baby May Mean 7 Things
After pregnancy is the start of a new challenge for the moms. Babies can’t speak and complain like adults do but they we may know what they mean through their cries. We listed seven usual reasons why a baby cries. Check it out so you can comply with their needs and make sure they are in good condition.
He might have spent the day playing or being with people. He finds it hard to sleep and he gets too irritable. Or worse, he may give you a loud disturbing cry. In these times, we can go to quiet places and calm the baby. Rocking and singing him to sleep may also work.
As moms, we have to make sure that the baby had enough milk. Sometimes, our milk formula prepared for them isn’t enough and we need to add a little more ounce. There are guides on the average amount of milk the baby needs in his month of age. They may stop drinking the milk at the moment but it doesn’t always mean they had enough.
He’s feeling alone.
Cuddling a baby is more than a pleasure for mothers but it is also a biological need for infants. If he suddenly cried inside his crib or while away from mom, then he must be feeling alone.
He’s feeling too hot or too cold.
Babies can’t complain verbally about temperatures. So, if he cries, notice if he is sweating too much or too exposed to cold. Overheating can be too dangerous and it’s been linked with sudden infant death syndrome. Cloth him with light cotton clothes in a hot climate. Doctors advise to feel his tummy to know if he or she is too cold. Subtract his blankets if you notice that he’s too warm. His hands and feet and the rest of the body is usually cold and not feeling them will not be helpful.
We might notice that the baby starts to rubbing his gums, chewing hard objects or putting his hand to his mouth at the age of three months. This is because he is teething. This process is a little bit uncomfortable for your little one since they are not used to it. Try over-the-counter teething gel or a teething ring to soothe his discomfort.
He’s fed up with people bugging him.
We, adults, get fed up when people constantly annoy us too. Children at their age cannot adjust to situations when they are always surrounded by people. The best way is to follow this routine: feed your baby, play with them for an hour or two, and then lull them to sleep. Aim for his bed time around 7 pm. A baby needs a lot of quiet time to grow and stay comfortable.
He needs a doctor.
Many babies suffer from stiff neck or tense abdomen and they cry when it aches. Some rub their ears or for redness in the area and it could mean an infection. Also, watch out for rashes on their bottom because it is also a major reason of infection. If you’re baby still continues to cry even though you’ve taken note of the 6 reasons above, you have to bring him to your trusted pediatrician.
