The most unpleasant part. There are many reasons that may drive your baby to cry, the problem is you do not know why. Here are you the most common reasons for crying and how to recognize it:
Gases & Colic:
If your baby often fusses and cries right after being fed, he/she may be feeling some sort of tummy pain. Try something simple to eliminate it such as putting him/her on back, holding his/her feet and moving legs in a gentle bicycling motion.
The first tooth breaks through between 4 and 7 months. Try feeling his/her gums with your fingers. You may be surprised to discover the hard nub of a baby tooth on its way out.
Some babies let you know right away when they need to be changed. Others can tolerate a dirty diaper for quite a while. It is recommended to check frequently.
Learn to recognize the signs of hunger:
Smacking his/her lips
Rooting towards your finger when you stroke his/her cheek
Putting hands in mouth.
Time to sleep:
If baby starts crying after playing with him/her, fed, changed, and he/she’s been up for a while, try holding close and help him/her sleep.
Too Cold or Too Warm:
When your baby feels chilly, such as when you remove his/her clothes to change a diaper or clean bottom with a cold wipe, he/she may protest by crying.
Babies are less likely to complain about being too warm than about being too cold.
