My daughter is crying a lot lately and I don't know why may you know why?

Hard to tell: The best thing to do is have her checked by the doctor. Babies don't know how to tell us what is bothering them. They can have an ear infection, a tummy ache, a pinched area (clothing too tight), be hungry, wet, dirty, tired, have an injury, or just need more attention. If it is happening frequently, get her checked to make sure it is not something that needs to be treated. ...Read more

Why do I feel like crying sometimes when I am extremely tired and/or under a lot of stress? Does crying relieve stress? If so, how?

Expressive outlet: There is a neuronal connection between tear duct & emotional brain regions. Chemicals are released during emotions & tears serve one outlet. Socially they communicate; psychologically they may soothe or produce aversive sensation prompting action to cope. There are numerous theories which reflect the complexity.

I took my 7mo old to the nursary he cried a lot does to much crying like more than 15min will harm my baby? I have to take him from now on.

No: By 7m an infant recognizes the tight bond they have with their mother & has separation anxiety if s/he cannot see her. Crying with separation is a sign of normal mental function. Baby will get better as he bonds with members of the nursery team, but this will likely continue at some level until he is at least 2. Prolonged crying at that age does not hurt the baby. ...Read more
