Do baby boys or girls cry more?

Do baby boys or girls cry more?

No data: I know of no reliable data from any source that could address this issue. Infant studies in the 60's came up with pattern duration variations with age/development but did not single out sex. I doubt you could find a way to get this funded & published. Suffice it to say your kid probably cries more than you would like. ...Read more

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. Perhaps the other babies are making random hand/face gestures that are look too stimulating. ...Read more

Babies crying in public makes me incredibly angry, how can I appease my anger?

Babies crying in public makes me incredibly angry, how can I appease my anger?

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

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

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

My girlfriend wants a sex change and I was wondering if we can have babies after it? By the way, we are both girls.

Gender Reassignment: There are various degrees of gender reassignment. She will not be able to inseminate you, nor will you be able to have a child of mixed genes between the two of you. Outwardly she may appear to be a man but her genes will always be a woman's. If she chooses to keep her female genital (vagina, uterus, ovaries)trans she too will be able to conceive, but again with a male sperm donor. ...Read more

My girlfriend wants a sex change and I was wondering if we can have babies after it. By the way, we are both girls.?

No, won't work!: If your partner is truly transgender, then he would be your boyfriend, right? But as a f-m transman, there is no functioning penis and no testicles to produce sperm, so no babies are possible without a sperm donor. "sex change" is not an operation, but a complex hormonal, psychological, and social process that often involves surgical gender reassignment surgery, but no sperm-producing penis. ...Read more

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?

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

What to do when my 11mos. Old babies turns blue when crying?

What to do when my 11mos. Old babies turns blue when crying?

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

How can I get my infant to stop crying whenever I put him down?

How can I get my infant to stop crying whenever I put him down?

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 more

Inconsolable babies crying nonstop. Do you have any tricks to stop this?

Inconsolable babies crying nonstop. Do you have any tricks to stop this?

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

Adoption, or...: Great question. Even though your mate is going to be a male, she will not have 'sperm' to mate with your egg. Thus, no natural birth is possible between you. However, one may be able to secure an outside 'sperm donor' to assist in the fertilization process. Best to discuss all this with your family physician who can direct you to the right specialists. ...Read more

My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do?

My 4 month old baby gets histerical once I put his infant carrier in the car. He won't stop crying turning blue and shaking. What should I do?

Keep him safe in car: At four months he is too young for a real temper tantrum. While he may get agitated by the car seat's restrictive environment, his safety in the car is paramount for him to be transported in any other way in the car. You may want to have someone else sit beside him not to make him so lonely. ...Read more

Dr's what is your opinion on letting babies cry it out? Our baby is six weeks old, my husband says let him cry it out but I think he's too young?

Dr's what is your opinion on letting babies cry it out? Our baby is six weeks old, my husband says let him cry it out but I think he's too young?

See Your Doctor Now: More information regarding your 6 week old infant is needed such as pre and post-natal medical history, feeding/sleeping patterns, and much more. Normal babies experience increased crying by age 2 weeks, crying reaches a peak by age 2 months. A thorough exam and correlation with history is needed to determine if crying is of a benign nature. Early intervention is always best. See your doctor now. ...Read more

How come it that these new school doctors are telling the young girls not to give the babies water?

How come it that these new school doctors are telling the young girls not to give the babies water?

Misinformation: Breast milk is 75% water and formula is 50% water so somehow the notion that infants do not need extra water got born. They do not need much- 1-2 oz a day to flush the system. Too much water is empty calories and can fill them up and reduce their milk intake...So a little water is fine. ...Read more

Dr's what is your opinion on letting babies cry it out? Our baby is 6 weeks old, my husband says let him cry it out but I think he's too young?

Yes he is too young: At this age something could be bothering him, most commonly thirst or hunger, not getting enough, or excessive gas in his stomach that needs to be expelled, then he might need a bath to calm him down, also check around all over his body for anything unusual, especially his private parts, penis and testicles not red or inflamed, are they in place, if after all this nothing is noted see his doctor ...Read more

When does the starte reflex stop being so strong in babies? Is it concerning in a 9 week old? He does it and wakes hisself crying as well as awake.

Can babies get sore throats from crying?

Can babies get sore throats from crying?

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
