Why does my baby cry around other babies?

Why does my baby cry around other babies?

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.

Sleep Training: 5 month old babies are capable of sleeping 8-10 hours a night. The sleep environment should allow her to fall asleep on her own when she is sleepy. This occurs best in her own space where she feels safe and can spend time alone even when not sleepy such as a crib. There are several training methods that can gradually and consistently help her adjust to calming herself to sleep. ...Read more

Do all babies shut their eyes and cry in bright lights or sunlight?

What do babies dream of that makes them cry while asleep?

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

Wanted to know if babies generally wake up at night crying because they are hungry?

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 more
