Cry in sleep: Infants go through different stages of sleep at night just as adults do, just different amounts of time in different stages. In certain stages of sleep, people often make noise - talking, grunting, etc. A baby's communication is crying - so it is there way of talking in their sleeep.

How do I break a 3 year of puking after crying when she doesn't get what she wants? She doesn't do this when she gets hurt. Only when mad
Consistency: Young children will throw fits to get what they want. You need to be consistent when you discipline your child. If her family is inconsistent it teaches them they can get away with throwing fits. My daughters didn't puke but they did have crying fits and tantrums. It takes time and patience to get through this especially at this age. I know I have a daily struggle with my 3 year old now. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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
Something to say..: Babies cry to communicate. It may be a need - i'm hungry, cold, wet, gassy. Or it may be to get your attention, especially as they begin to realize there are people who love and hug them when they "communicate" with an attention getting cry. It's their way of sending you a signal, because they haven't mastered the phrase "change my diaper, it's full of poo" or "mommy i love you and i need a hug". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Yes: In the first 3-4 months, you should comfort your baby when he/she cries, by talking, touching, holding, moving and/or feeding. You can not "spoil" a newborn by holding or soothing "too much". However, as the baby gets older, you need to allow them time to learn to "soothe themselves" and to wait short periods of time before being picked up. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I know this is gonna sound kinda weird, but why does my son grab his pee pee when i change him or when hes batheing? Hes almost two. When will he stop
Boys: What you describe is perfectly normal for boys your son's age. It is unlikely that this is a sign of any medical problem. Many mothers of boys have expressed this concern to me over the past twenty years. In a sense, he has discovered a readily available new toy. As he matures to pre-school age it may be necessary to discourage him from "touching his privates" in the presence of others. ...Read more
