Crying (Definition)

Crying in infancy is described as a loud, high-pitched sound made by infants in response to certain situations.

Grief can continue for a very long time. If grief causes major negatives in your life, seek counseling. We have techniques to help, especially if you are "stuck." ...Read more

My mother in law thinks that its not healthy to let my 3 month old son cry it out? Is it true?

My mother in law thinks that its not healthy to let my 3 month old son cry it out? Is it true?

Yes & no: I think it's ok for a kid to "cry it out" as long as you have run thru the list of things you can fix. If fed within the past 1-2hrs & dry, not too hot or cold & really just over tired it doesn't hurt. If he stops when you pick him up but it's nap time, he needs to learn to self settle. Kids who are rocked to sleep have 400% more sleep problems the first 4yrs.It doesn't hurt them mentally. ...Read more

Everyone : Everyone feels sad or depressed every once in a while. However, it sounds like you're getting to a point where it would be useful to get some help with these feelings. It's great that you recognize that things are beginning to impact those around you--it means that you have good insight to the problem, and that's a good indicator for successful treatment. The worst thing to do is "tough it out." maybe you could see the person or people who are working with your mother. You may even know them already. If that solution doesn't work for some reason, then i would urge you to look into other mental health resources in your area. ...Read more
