Can A Baby Cry Themselves To Death
See your doctor: Many infants between 9 months and 3 years old will have breath holding spells where they turn "blue" and can faint from holding their breath. These spells occur in response to pain or anger - always. Some kids will have some blueness around the lips (not the lips themselves) when crying and this can be normal. I would have my child seen to be sure it is a breath holding spell & nothing concerning. ...Read more
It's OK to let cry.: If there is no other reason for the crying that needs to be treated, then it is definitely ok, and actually recommended to let him cry. You are the parent, and your child needs to learn at an early age that he cannot manipulate you. Trust me, you will be much happier in the long run, and your child will be better able to adapt to different situations. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
Baby's uncomfortable: A 3 month old baby may cry (around other babies) because his feelings of comfort and security got interrupted. Maybe he is no longer being held by mom/dad, as he got placed down next to another baby, or maybe mom/dad changed her/his tone of voice. Maybe the other babies are crying and being too noisy. Perhaps the other babies are making random hand/face gestures that are look too stimulating. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lucky: Every baby is different, some cry alot and others not as much. I would not consider this abnormal. Be thankful for such a nice disposition of your baby. ...Read more
Seek counselling: This could just be a symptom of unresolved sadness you have suppressed since early childhood. A few sessions with a therapist could help you understand the issue and get past the frustration. Being raised by parents who refused to acknowledge or validate normal childhood emotions can have this effect. There are other causes.The mind is complex ; life is to short to carry these burdens. ...Read more
Yes: Babies usually need to eat every 3-4 hours in the first month or 2. After a while, that time will start to stretch. Babies can also wake up and cry if they are uncomfortable with gas, wet or dirty diaper, etc. Older babies, who haven't learned to fall asleep on their own, may wake up out of habit, even when they don't need to eat at night. If your baby wakes frequently, see your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Please tell me if there are any evidence proving that babies who are ignored during night time if they wake up crying can develop mental problems?
No there is not.: You should check your baby and make sure that they are not hungry or have a wet or dirty diaper and that they are not hurt in any way and that they have not thrown up. If not, you can actually help your baby learn to get back to sleep by letting them cry and fuss for a short period of time. ...Read more
Absolutely.: If you have ever attended an exciting football game and cheered vociferously for your team, the next morning (if not later that night!) you were probably hoarse and your throat was probably sore. Babies crying use the same basic equipment as your cheering. Obviously it requires rather forceful, red-faced crying (not just a whimper), usually with a waterfall of tears! resting the voice improves it. ...Read more
Unknown: Since there is no way to research this area (babies don't converse or describe events) there is no way to know. Age regression hypnosis has been able to tap that information as far back as 2 yo, when kids worry more about abandonment or getting lost than anything. Younger kids ? No one knows. ...Read more
