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

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?

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.

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 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?

You may want to have someone else sit beside him not to make him so lonely. ...Read more

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

We have a month old infant who is gassy. We do our best to aggresively make him burp but within an hour after feed, he gets up crying from gas pain. Are there any other remedies?

Some possibilities: Babies swallow air- when they eat, suck or cry. During feedings, try to burp him in between every ounce, or between nursing on each side. Hold him upright (on your shoulder) for 15-20 minutes after feedings to help allow the air to rise up and escape, and not get trapped under the milk. Try a lactose free formula. Try simethicone (gas drops for infants). Check with your doctor if this continues. ...Read more
