Babies do cry and for the first few weeks. Some babies cry more and are fussy – they just feel like crying. If your baby is crying, it doesn’t necessarily mean that there is something wrong with her.
Yet, babies usually cry when they are hungry. Newborns usually follow a routine. Their only food is breast milk and they cry if the previous feed was incomplete. They usually cry when they want you to hold them. Physical contact and cuddling is very important for your baby’s growth. It also helps you understand your baby better. They also cry if they are in the arms of someone they don’t like or they don’t recognise. This varies from one baby to another. Some babies are friendly and they don’t mind who is holding them.
Babies feel tired and not all of them can sleep by themselves when they are sleepy. They become very fussy and do not want to eat when they are sleepy.
Sometimes babies cry because they are unable to pick up the toy they are playing with or they just dislike the toy. If your baby is just a few days old, she may cry because of discomfort or pain. Sometimes babies do not like too much of noise and people around them. If there is a gathering at your place, it is very normal for your baby to get fussy and exhausted. Babies are not used to loud music and a lot of people around them. The only way to calm your baby in such a situation is by taking her to somewhere quiet and homely.
Babies cry, if they feel uncomfortable due to wet diapers or they don’t like the way they are held or they are uncomfortable because of the weather (too hot or too cold). They also cry when they are sick or hurt.
You have to understand why your child is fussing or crying. If you can understand that, it is easier for you to calm your child. And for you to understand your baby you have to spend time with her, you have to observe her behavior and figure out a schedule for the baby after birth.
