Will frequent crying harm my baby who has colic?

Will frequent crying harm my baby who has colic?

No: No, your baby's frequent crying due to colic will not harm him/her. Colic is still one of those great mysteries that has no definitive treatment except time. Thus, many colicky babies do cry a lot (many hours in fact).

Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Why does my baby resist her crib during naptime?

Crib and Nap: You are probably responding to her cries too quickly. It is a learned response for the baby. She cries and you run in. The more she cries, the more you run in. I say, put her down and let her cry for a while. Let her see that she does not always get what she wants with the crying. Otherwise she is simply training you instead of the other way around. ...Read more
