One thing that you’ll notice is that babies cry a great deal. But, a baby’s cry is like a fingerprint. A parent can learn to recognize their cry in a room full of other babies. Now that you are able to recognize their cry, here are a few ways to help you know what they all mean.
Each time a baby cries they might be in need of something different. Do not allow it to alarm or frustrate you. Eventually you’ll be able to look at your baby and figure out what it is that’s bothering them.
For now, utilize this convenient tip guide to aid you out.
* Irritability – You know how you are when you’re annoyed. You do not wish to be bothered by anybody or anything. The same goes for your baby. If you find that they can’t be consoled even after a diaper change and a feeding, it might be that something else is awry. They may be hot or swaddled too tightly. Try to free them of constraints and get the air flowing once again.
* Hungry – Fainting cries may be a symptom of hunger. The stomach is vacant and they’re ready to eat. Long piercing cries are frequently witnessed in malnourished babies. Your baby is likely not malnourished, but they just may be genuinely in need of sustenance.
* Distress – Have a look at your baby. They might be crying but their face is giving you a clue as to why. Wrinkling of the face particularly around the nose, tightly shutting the eyes and stretching of the mouth into a grimace may demonstrate pain or distress. The baby may be feeling pain inside and showing it as they get into a position that induces pain. Check him over to see that nothing is jabbing him and there’s no tightness in the abdomen (could be a hernia or trapped gas).
* Throat pain – If the source of the pain is in the mouth, baby might cry or they might merely be fussy. One sign of pain in the mouth is poor feeding. It might hurt to swallow so baby attempts to do it as little as possible. Check for additional signs of a cold such as fever, runny nose or coughing. These symptoms might accompany throat pain.
* Bodily pain – Arching the back is a sign that something is hurting baby. It might be on the outside, so turn baby over and over to determine what may be annoying them. Have they just fed? Perhaps they need to burp. It might also be reflux.
* Lethargy – A lethargic baby may be a cause for concern. They do not seem to have the energy to cry. It might signal an ear infection, a fever or other condition. Search for redness around the ears, tugging on the ears or a warm or clammy skin.
What does crying mean in your baby? It might be more than a need for a diaper change. Learn to recognize symptoms of pain.
