Crying is normal for infants. Baby’s crying is a way to express their emotions. When the baby is upset, crying can make them quieter. At certain times, the baby will be fussy. When hungry, angry, or feel insecure, baby will express through crying. After calm down, baby will not fuss anymore. Crying will make the baby back into normal tension.
Note the way how the baby is crying. Baby has its own way to express their emotions. Because they have not been able to speak, they will communicate through crying. The cries of hunger baby will be different from cries of anger. The whining crying baby is also would be different. Mother will understand some types of cry automatically. Strong relationship between mother and child will facilitate their communication. This is the way how the mother can provide appropriate feedback to the infants.
Sometimes, the slow response of the mother will make a crying baby overlap. Hungry baby will cry. If the baby does not get food soon, the baby will cry harder. Baby will cry louder if they become angry. Therefore, rapid response will make baby quiet quickly. Try to meet their primary needs first.
If the baby’s needs have been met and the baby is still crying, you can perform some actions. You can hold the baby, singing, patting his back, walk him, play music, driving along, or baby bath with foam. If it still does not work, leave her alone could be a solution. Some babies become quiet after being alone.
If still does not work, perhaps your baby is sick. Make sure the baby’s body temperature and contact your doctor immediately if the baby had a fever. If you feel frustrated with the baby, do not get upset in front of the baby. Angry will make the baby scream louder. First, calm yourself and come to your baby after you have been calmed down. Ask family or partner if you cannot control your emotions.
Crying baby does not mean that the baby does not like to you. Crying is one part that cannot be separated from the baby. Enjoy every moment with your baby, including when she cries.
