Why is my Baby Crying?!

Why is my Baby Crying

Little fun fact: Babies typically cry for 2-3 hours daily.

Remember: It's totally normal for your baby to have a crying spree, especially at night (yes, the infamous witching hour). It's tough but hang in there—it usually peaks around 6 weeks and gets better by 3 months.

Crying is your baby's way of sending you messages. It'll take some time, but you'll start to notice the nuances in their cries. When in doubt, try a little detective work to soothe them.

Here are some top reasons why babies cry:

Hunger

Sometimes, all they need is a little snack. Look for hunger signs, and remember, soothing before feeding can help if they're really upset.

Sleepiness

An overtired baby is a fussy baby. Learning their sleep signals is key to avoiding those overtired tears.

Need for cuddles

Your touch is comforting. Consider babywearing—it's a cozy fix that keeps your hands free.

Teething

It usually starts after 4 months. Cool teething toys work wonders, and don't hesitate to consult your pediatrician for pain relief options.

Diaper duty

A quick peek will let you know if it's time for a change.

Illness

More crying than usual could signal they're sick. Look for fever or other symptoms and get medical advice if something doesn't feel right.

Discomfort

They could be uncomfortable. Try to find and remove the cause if possible.

Gas

It's not fun for anyone. Bicycle their legs to help pass gas, and ensure good burping during feeds.

Overstimulation

ometimes it's all just too much. Tone down the environment for some quiet cuddle time.

Temperature check

Fussing and skin changes can signal they're too hot or cold. Adjust as needed for their comfort.
