Baby Crying Nonstop
Infant Colic: Sounds like infant colic when a bay is inconsolable. You may try motion, like going for a car ride, or basket on top of a washer or secured swing. You may try changing the diet to a digested formula like neutramagen just in case there is a tummy ache, and if you have not already done so, have the baby checked by a doctor just in case there is a medical reason for being unhappy. ...Read more
Many reasons: Without knowing a whole lot more about your situation, i can't guess why your baby is crying. Sometimes there is a genuine medical problem, sometimes it's more a matter of an anxious personality, and sometimes it's just blowing off steam. Visit your pediatrician to go over the situation in depth so you can get a good answer to your question. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It depends.: If your baby isn't waking up during these episodes, they may be night terrors. If so, the best things to do are to ensure there is nothing in the crib to can get hurt on, and keep him/her on a consistent sleep schedule. If she/he has a habit of waking and then crying, as long as there is no medical cause for this, it's best to see if your baby can go back to sleep alone. His/her doctor can advise. ...Read more
Soundproofing.: The house, not the baby. There are different techniques to calm a baby, depending on the age and reason for crying, but ultimately, babies cry, and the more frazzled you get, the more the baby cries. First thing to do (not easy, but essential!) is to get yourself unfrazzled. ...Read more
List of fixes: It helps if mom/dad make a list of what things they can do something about, for those times they are tired & can't think clearly. Offer feed if not fed within last 2hr. Warm if cold. Cool off if warm. Change if dirty. Console if in need of nurturing. A warm bath can relax them. If nothing works & baby is otherwise well, put on the headphones & let the kid figure it out. ...Read more
Discomfort/Fear: We all cry for similar reasons: fear, discomfort, and hunger. If you know your baby's tummy is full, the most common reasons are teeth or bad dreams (depending on their age). What can you do about bad dreams? Not much. But, teething can be helped with some Ibuprofen before bedtime. I also would check your baby's diaper, clothes, and bed to make sure that there is nothing causing them discomfort. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: Your baby is crying all the time because (s)he is unhappy and maybe in pain. Figuring the cause of the discomfort is important. It could be colic, acid reflux, a reaction to something you are eating if you are breast feeding or to formula if you are bottle feeding. I would suggest a visit to your pediatrician for a more thorough evaluation and more detailed history. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My baby crying as soon as we place her in car seat . Because of this problem we cant able to go any trip . How can we make her to calm down ?
Ear plugs/phones: If s/he gets use to being strapped in for every short trip it should gradually get better.Fussing is the primary tool of infants, when they realize you don't change because of it they eventually opt for less. It is important NOT to attach mirrors or toys to the seat or surrounding area that might detach in a crash and hit them in the face.

How long can I leave my 2-month-old baby crying without hurting her vocal cord? When cries her face's all red and looks as if she's suffocating?
Too young for crying: A 2-month-old baby is still too young to be left crying. Parents should still do all the things they need to do to console the young baby. They should be sure the baby is not too hungry, not too full, not too cold, not too hot, not sick, not wrapped too tightly, and not too lonely. After the baby turns 3 months, parents can start stricter "bedtime" routines, as by then, most babies can be trained. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
