Make sure, however, that your child has seen her doctor for a diagnosis. ...Read more

There : There are many, many things that could make a child cry; from teething, to ear infections, to stomach cramps, to just being tired. The list is endless! the best thing to do is take her to her doctor for a complete history and examination. You are correct in being concerned about a change in behavior in your usually happy baby. In preparation for your visit, try to keep track of when she has these crying spells, how long they last, and how she is doing otherwise (eating, playing, pooping, sleeping ok?). This may help your child's doctor narrow down the causes and hopefully find a solution. Good luck! ...Read more
