Baby Shhh! - Find what is making your baby cry and fix it.
A wonderful guide through the six most common reasons why babies cry. For each reason there is a 'What to look for' section to find the cause of the crying quickly and a 'More on' section which gives you solid advice on how to make life easier on you and your family. There is also a section on Red Flag Signs: These are indications that your baby is ill and needs to see a health professional immediately.
Babies only cry when something is bothering them, for some babies there is very little that bothers them and others find things a little more difficult. Whether your baby cries once a day or a hundred times a day, every time is distressing for you. Factor in exhaustion, sleep deprivation and anxiety and even experienced mothers can need a little help to figure out what the cause of the crying is.
'Crying and the fatigue that typically accompanies it can inflict enormous emotional strain causing parents to feel they are providing inadequate care, triggering anxiety, stress, resentment and low self-esteem.'
Kirkland J. CrySOS, Cry Research Letter, 5:9-14, 1983
This is not a medical text. if at anytime you feel that something is wrong with your baby or cannot find what is making your baby cry then talk to your health professional and tell them all the things that you have tried.
