Baby 8mos has been pushing up on all fours & rocking back & forth for 2mos, he does this for 10 min or so then starts whining then cry if not pick up?

Probably normal: He is probably wanting to get up and move! rocking is often sign of a desire to get moving, even if the rest of the baby is not quite ready. After he does it for a while he is probably tired and frustrated, thus the desire to be held. ...Read more

Crying (Definition)

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

Premature infants may not have a cry reflex, so they must be monitored closely for signs ...Read more

Why does my baby start to cry when I close my baby's diaper tabs?

Why does my baby start to cry when I close my baby's diaper tabs?

Likes Being naked: It is important to make sure the diaper is not too tight or rubbing the inner thighs or along the hips. Some babies really do not like being clothed and others love it. .

I accidentally gave my 11 months old baby a bite of dal and chappati that was a bit hot. He started to cry though not much. What should I do?

Spicy food: To offset the discomfort from the spice, i would recommend giving him formula/milk to alkalinize the spice and/or water. If the food was hot with regards to temperature, you may do the same as well as apply a cool clean rag to his tongue. ...Read more

Oxytocin surge: You are a female that the instinctual response of the adult female is to respond to a crying baby. This response can be in the form of a release of oxytocin from teh brain (pituitary gland), which causes contraction of some of the smooth muscles in the breast. This can cause pain in some individuals. The same response causes milk let down / leakage in lactating females. It is natural. ...Read more

My sisters baby just blew milk out her nose and stopped breathing for thirty or more seconds turned dark blue then started to cry is that normal??????

No: Depending on how old your sister is infants are obligate nose breathers. If she aspirated milk into her nose she couldn't breathe until she cried and used her mouth to breathe. She will acquire the ability soon to breathe with her mouth, but until then be careful and make sure her nose stay clear and open. If she continues to aspirate milk into her nose see her pediatrician. ...Read more

My baby starts crying in bright lights or sunlight, is this normal?

My baby starts crying in bright lights or sunlight, is this normal?

Yes: Many babies find bright lights (or loud sounds) upsetting. If you baby is fine under ordinary light in the house, and the eyes look normal, there's probably nothing to worry about. I do recommend you mention this to your pediatrician at the next routine visit to be sure. ...Read more

I blessed with a baby boy yesterday he weighted 2.7 k gs. The problem is he started crying after 1 min & he is nor crying ever since( in absorvation )?

Is he better?: They cry to oxygenate and to let you know they are hungry. If you are breast feeding, have him skin to skin on your chest- that can calm him. Also breast feed often- every 30 minutes to an hour for 1-2 minutes. Short frequent suckling brings your milk in faster and then he will be more satisfied once he is getting full from eating. ...Read more
