    The top reasons for babies cry

    Everybody knows the babies reveal the needs by Crying; the reasons are sometimes very interesting also.

    Hunger is one of the most common reasons that your newborn baby will cry.
    Your baby's small stomach can't hold very much, so if she cries, try offering her some milk. She may be hungry, even if her last feed doesn't seem very long ago.

    Your baby may find it hard to get to sleep, particularly if she is over-tired. Your baby's sleep cues will tend to be whining and crying at the slightest thing, staring blankly into space, and going quiet. Help her by teaching her to soothe herself to sleep.

    I just feel like crying!
    If your baby is less than five months old, she may cry in the late afternoon and evenings. This is normal, but it can be very stressful for you. Persistent crying in an otherwise healthy baby is traditionally called colic. Cuddling and swaying with your baby, going for a drive, or creating white noise, say from a hairdryer, may soothe your crying baby.

    I need a nappy change
    Your baby may protest if a wet or soiled nappy is bothering him. If his tender skin is being irritated, he will probably tell you by crying. Always use barrier cream at nappy changes, and if possible, give your baby nappy-free time.

    I need a cuddle
    Your baby will need lots of cuddling and reassurance to comfort her. Try a baby sling to keep her close to you, perhaps swaying and singing to her while you hold her.

    I need to burp
    If your baby cries during or straight after a feed, she may have wind. Wind is simply the air in your baby's tummy, which she's swallowed as she feeds, or even when she cries. Patting or rubbing your baby's back is good ways to burp her.

    Too hot
    Take care not to overdress your baby, or he may become too hot. He will generally need to wear one more layer of clothing than you to be comfortable.

    I'm too cold
    Your baby may hate having her nappy changed, or being bathed. She may not be used to the feeling of cold air on her skin. But you will soon learn how to perfect a quick nappy change, if this is the case.

    I don’t feel well
    Be aware of changes in your baby. If he's unwell, he'll probably cry in a different tone to his usual cry. It may be weaker, more urgent, continuous, or high-pitched.
