What might be the problem when a newborn baby doesn't cry at all? What procedures must do to the baby?

Depends.: If crying is the only thing absent, and all other factors (turning to sound, breathing, movement, social smile, etc) are present, there may not be anything wrong at all. A good history and physical may be all that's needed. ...Read more

My 5 year old squezed my newborn hard and it started crying hard for 3-4 minutes.can there be damaged done?the baby is ok.

Possibly: Really can't tell over the internet. If it seems tender or swollen, or if the baby is fussy, I would have him seen for sure. May want to call the baby's pediatrician and discuss it with him/her. ...Read more

Is it normal for newborn to keep crying incessantly at night? My baby is less than 24 hours old

Is it normal for newborn to keep crying incessantly at night? My baby is less than 24 hours old

No: Crying is normal. Excessive crying is not normal. If the baby is less than 24 hours old and you are still in the hospital, please seek care from the nurses and doctors there since it's rare to discharge a baby before 24 hours of age. Ensure the baby is well-fed and is warm. Have the baby examined by a qualified professional. ...Read more

My newborn baby keeps crying, I think she is constipated, what can I do to stop her pain. Please.

My newborn baby keeps crying, I think she is constipated, what can I do to stop her pain. Please.

Crying vs pain: Please do not get into the habit of equating crying with pain. Babies cry for hours every single day. This is how they communicate, stretch out their lungs, get you to come and hold them, get you to feed them. Make sure you are burping well, swaddle baby so they feel more secure, make sure baby getting enough to eat. If questions about normal stool patterns and whether she is constipated, ask doc. ...Read more

My newborn baby that 19, days old and she keeps crying I think she constipated, what can I give my new infant baby for the pain. Can suppositories use?

Constipation: Is hard and infrequent stools. You can give a glycerin suppository once and see igf that helps. Baby may be crying if mom is breastfeeding and drinking milk, eating dairy. If using milk based formula then can also cause tummy ache. Baby could be colicky too. Go see your doctor and discuss this. You will feel better and so will baby! ...Read more

Newborn strains to poo but not constipated, normal poo. To a point where he starts crying.Also, grunts alot at night bedtime. Is this normal? Thank you

Newborn strains to poo but not constipated, normal poo. To a point where he starts crying.Also, grunts alot at night bedtime. Is this normal? Thank you

Normal: Newborns can make a lot of funny noises, including grunting, especially with gas. Having a BM can be a lot of work for a little one-- weak abdominal muscles, lying flat...so you can help him--put him in a sitting position (gravity), pull his legs up (imagine yourself trying to poo lying flat with very weak abs!) Rub his tummy, and a warm bath might help. If not better, see your pediatrician! ...Read more

Why is my newborn baby crying just before she has bowel movement?

Why is my newborn baby crying just before she has bowel movement?

Hard to say: Since babies are pooping laying down & don't have much abdominal muscle power, they may fuss just to push things out. They may be spooked by the sensation. They may cramp with the process. Until they are old enough to ask we often never know. ...Read more

My 4w newborn HATES tummy time. She can't go beyond 5 minutes without crying uncontrollably. I don't know what to do. I think she torticollis.

My 4w newborn HATES tummy time. She can't go beyond 5 minutes without crying uncontrollably. I don't know what to do. I think she torticollis.

Not Unusual: Many newborns don't like tummy time until their able to move around and even turn over. It's not critically important now
Torticollis is a neck muscle stiffness that response to physical therapy. If you feel your child has a head tilt or can't move the neck freely, see your doctor soon. The sooner it's recognized the faster it responds ...Read more

Newborn crying all day. No symptoms of being sick. Very fussy during breast feeding.

Newborn crying all day. No symptoms of being sick. Very fussy during breast feeding.

It gets easier with: Time to interpret your baby's cries. Unfortunately, when babies cry they swallow air. The smooth muscle of the intestine isn't synchronized yet to pass the air out. If baby seems gag when starting to nurse, he may need a burp. I'll ask my arabic-speaking daughter to help explain the " football hold" or "colic carry" to you to help baby pass gas. When all else fails, allow your baby to self-calm. ...Read more

My newborn daughter 3 weeks old started to cry very badly when urinating every time. Her belly makes funn sounds as well. Is it related?

Call doc now: It is hard to say what this could be. But it could be serious. Call your doctor right now or get her seen at an emergency room or clinic. With babies in the first month of life, it is extra important to check out unusual changes in behavior that don't quickly go away. Other worrisome things are decreased ability to suck, limpness of the arms and crying that does not stop with the usual measures. ...Read more

My newborn (almost 1 MO) hasn't pooped in two days and seems to be in pain. Crying and drawing his legs up. Eating and peeing fine. What to do?

Normal in some: Your typical breast fed baby can have a little poo smear every feeding or one giant blowout every 7-10 days. Formula babies go more often and daily. If soft, I don't consider it constipation. Babes do lots of leg drawing and fuss for no particular reason, but the process may help push food along. As long as baby wets every 6 hours or more I would consider things within the range of normal ...Read more

Newborn crying during breast feeding and seems in pain. Spits up a lot too. What could this be?

Likely reflux: Most likely your newborn is experiencing gastroesophogeal reflux, a common condition in babies. Try keeping baby elevated (head up), during feedings and for 20 minutes or so after feedings. Be sure not to overfeed. There is a possibility that there may be a lactose or protein intolerance, as well. Try limiting your dairy intake. If these things don't help, please contact your pediatrician! ...Read more

What at-home techniques relieve epiphora in a newborn baby? My six-week-old has watery eyes all the time, even when she is not crying. Her doctor called this epiphora. Is there anything I can do at home to help this go away? .

What at-home techniques relieve epiphora in a newborn baby? My six-week-old has watery eyes all the time, even when she is not crying. Her doctor called this epiphora. Is there anything I can do at home to help this go away?
.

Epiphora : Epiphora (poor tear drainage) in the newborn period is extremely common — 2-4% of all newborns will have it. It is usually due to an obstruction of the tear duct (newborn tear ducts are tiny!) and 95% of all cases get better on their own by the time the child is 1 years old. Two things that can help are for you to gently massage the tear ducts (inner eye corners) periodically and to use a clean wet washcloth to wipe away any occasional crusting from the tear buildup. Other than that, you will just have to wait until your child grows out of it. If your child is in the 5% that do not improve by 1 year, then your child's doctor will recommend an ophthalmologist (eye specialist) who can do a simple procedure to open the ducts. If the eye becomes red, swollen, or develops green drainage, call your child's doctor since it may be infected. ...Read more

Sorry: Am truly sorry for what you are going thru. Suggest you speak to a grief counsellor and or a psychiatrist. ER rarely help with what you are going thru. What u are facing is expected. If you believe in religion seek solace there. Family and friends if around can help. Meditation can help but hard to do. Finally, a psychiatrist may offer medications to help cope. My best for you and your family. ...Read more
