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

Crying (Definition)

Crying in infancy is described as a loud, high-pitched sound made by infants in response to certain situations. Infants have a cry reflex that is a normal response to some stimuli, such as pain or hunger. Older children and adults cry for emotional reasons such as pain, fear, sadness, or frustration. Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

Why does my 13 week old baby seem to cry just to be picked up? Happens when fed, nappy changed. Crying stops almost soon as picked up.

Why does my 13 week old baby seem to cry just to be picked up? Happens when fed, nappy changed. Crying stops almost soon as picked up.

Crying baby: Baby is preverbal but she can communicate her needs quite well even at 13 weeks young. She crys and you pick her up and she stops. That sounds to me like you understood exactly what she was trying to communicate to you. Sounds like you are off to a great start. Keep it up! ...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 ?

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

Why is my 11 week old baby girl always crying when pooing? What I do to help her.

Why  is my 11 week old baby girl always crying when pooing? What I do to help her.

Probably normal: If your baby's poop is hard, that may be the cause of her crying. If so, giving 1-2 oz fruit juice, such as prune juice or apple juice, once a day can help. If the poop is soft, it is actually normal for babies to grunt, strain, and cry to have a bowel movement. Their muscles are not well-developed yet, so they must really work to do what comes so naturally to grown people - poop! ...Read more

Hello, my 7 week old baby has started spitting up clear fluid between feeds. She has also started crying in the evening during feeding when I wind her?

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
