Why do babies cry?

Babies don't hesitate to come home and settle in and show their real faces. All babies cry a little, but some like to exaggerate! Crying is the only way babies communicate. It's possible to call it the first baby talk. You can understand whether your baby is hungry, sleepless or uncomfortable only when you cry. Although it may seem impossible right now, you will learn to solve your baby's different cries later. Some cries do not come from basic needs. Four out of every five babies cry for 15 minutes to 1 hour a day for no reason. This may be because the rush around the baby increases in the evening. When the father arrives home, food preparations begin, and if there are older children, they wait for attention and all this is more than the baby can handle. Or the baby is busy crying in the evening trying to relieve the tiredness of the day while he is busy with different images, sounds, smells and stimuli around him. All he can do is cry! There's no choice! Some happy babies cry from tiredness or trying to sleep. If your baby cries for five to ten minutes before each sleep, don't worry. Your baby will automatically give up this habit. Giving the baby more rest time during the day will reduce his or her tiredness at night. In general, crying of babies decreases after three months. As she begins to express herself and understand you better, she will cry for less and less.

Sudden crying crisis seen in a baby who does not cry before can indicate tooth extraction or disease. Check if there are any other signs that may indicate that your baby is ill and call your doctor if something is not right.

Appease the crying baby:

The most important point about the baby's crying is that you respond promptly and uninterruptedly; if you let it cry on its own, it becomes even more aggravating and its crying intensifies. Here are seven ways to soothe your crying baby:
• Feed it. The main reason for crying in the first months is hunger. Therefore, nipple or bottle feeding (even if you need to feed nonstop day and night) will soothe it.
• Hold it on your lap. Especially in the first months, even taking him alone can soothe him. It needs a loving touch. If it calms down when you hold your head on your shoulders or with your face facing the ground, the gas may be the cause of crying.
• Shake on your lap. Rhythmic movements soothe the baby. A short stroll in the immediate vicinity can help calm the baby.
• Wrap your baby in a shawl or blanket and make him feel safe (not in hot weather).
• Stroke and tummy your belly or back. So if he has gas, you can help him get it out.
• Give something to absorb. Almost all babies stop crying when they start sucking.
• Distract him. Something interesting to look at can sometimes make your baby forget why he's crying. Keep in mind bright and colorful
things especially attract babies.
