Possibly: Really can't tell over the internet. If it seems tender or swollen, or if the baby is fussy, I would have him seen for sure. May want to call the baby's pediatrician and discuss it with him/her. ...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

My newborn baby keeps crying, i think she is constipated, what can I do to stop her pain.Please.

My newborn baby keeps crying, i think she is constipated, what can I do to stop her pain.Please.

Crying vs pain: Please do not get into the habit of equating crying with pain. Babies cry for hours every single day. This is how they communicate, stretch out their lungs, get you to come and hold them, get you to feed them. Make sure you are burping well, swaddle baby so they feel more secure, make sure baby getting enough to eat. If questions about normal stool patterns and whether she is constipated, ask doc. ...Read more

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

My newborn daughter 3 weeks old started to cry very badly when urinating every time. Her belly makes funn sounds as well. Is it related?

Call doc now: It is hard to say what this could be. But it could be serious. Call your doctor right now or get her seen at an emergency room or clinic. With babies in the first month of life, it is extra important to check out unusual changes in behavior that don't quickly go away. Other worrisome things are decreased ability to suck, limpness of the arms and crying that does not stop with the usual measures. ...Read more

My newborn (almost 1 MO) hasn't pooped in two days and seems to be in pain. Crying and drawing his legs up. Eating and peeing fine. What to do?

My newborn (almost 1 MO)  hasn't pooped in two days and seems to be in pain. Crying and drawing his legs up. Eating and peeing fine. What to do?

Normal in some: Your typical breast fed baby can have a little poo smear every feeding or one giant blowout every 7-10 days.Formula babies go more often and daily. If soft, I don't consider it constipation. Babes do lots of leg drawing and fuss for no particular reason, but the process may help push food along. As long as baby wets every 6 hours or more I would consider things within the range of normal ...Read more

Depends.: If crying is the only thing absent, and all other factors (turning to sound, breathing, movement, social smile, etc) are present, there may not be anything wrong at all. A good history and physical may be all that's needed. ...Read more

Is it normal for newborn to keep crying incessantly at night? My baby is less than 24 hours old

Is it normal for newborn to keep crying incessantly at night? My baby is less than 24 hours old

No: Crying is normal. Excessive crying is not normal. If the baby is less than 24 hours old and you are still in the hospital, please seek care from the nurses and doctors there since it's rare to discharge a baby before 24 hours of age. Ensure the baby is well fed and is warm. Have the baby examined by a qualified professional. ...Read more
