Recognizing the Signs of a Baby's Cry
As helpless creatures, babies have a special way of attracting the attention of those around them when they need something. Crying is the right way. When the baby cries, then there is a strong desire from parents to immediately approach him.
Apart from eating and sleeping, a baby also cries regularly. Immediately after birth, the baby cries loudly. It is an amazing experience for a mother.
As a new creature, adjustment to the environment should not be underestimated. Not infrequently a baby's cry even makes us confused. When a baby cries and we can't comfort him, it often leaves us feeling devastated. Why is he crying? Why can't he be entertained? Worry often takes a lot of attention, so it often makes us very tired, especially when our sleep time is disturbed.
A baby's cry when our bodies are tired often inadvertently cause anger and despair. Anger and hopelessness are signs of “danger,” because we cannot control the state of the resulting emotions. This situation must be addressed immediately. Immediately contact a trusted person to share feelings. If no one can be contacted, immediately put the baby in his bed so that the baby is in a safe position. Closing your ears and eyes for a while can help you be who you are again. Never take action when you are angry.
There must be a 'cause' for a baby's cry
Babies cry there must be a reason. Therefore, it is necessary to find out what causes it.
Baby feeling hungry
Several times a day the baby has an unpleasant feeling in his stomach, namely hunger. Crying because we are hungry generally rarely makes us anxious, because it can be predicted when it will take place and we can fulfill our desires. Actually babies are drinking at times that are not always there. Babies sometimes feel hungry prematurely or lack appetite, even no appetite at all to drink or eat. Heavy crying can make the baby very disturbed, so that the baby does not want to drink even though he is hungry. If this is the case then try to calm the baby first.
Are baby drinks adequate?
If someone says that the baby will be calmer if given additional milk or the supply of breast milk is too little so that the baby cries a lot, don't believe it immediately and start 'experimenting'. Don't hesitate to talk to your doctor about your baby's drinking needs.
Baby has colic
Babies sometimes cry very loudly. When this happens, the baby may have infantile colic. At the age of 2 weeks, babies can suddenly cry loudly, especially in the afternoon or late at night. This condition can occur every day (sometimes up to 3 hours or more). Why it happened so often at that time and the crying was so intense, and what caused it, is not entirely clear. But generally these complaints will disappear by itself at the age of 3-4 months. Holding the baby and gently massaging his tummy can sometimes help calm him down. What if the baby still won't stop crying? Put the baby comfortably in his crib and try to comfort him again.
Baby is sick
Often we as parents think that the baby is crying because he is sick and not infrequently our feelings are considered as an "excessive worry" by those around us. The parents (especially the mother) who see and can feel the most things in their baby are the parents (especially the mother), so if the mother feels the need to take her baby to the doctor for examination, it should be done. If it turns out that the baby is healthy, the mother feels more comfortable, so she doesn't have to worry too much about the next cries.
Keep in mind that a baby is very sensitive, therefore if we suspect something is wrong with his health, immediately visit a health facility. To get it, you can download the Halo Hermina application on the App Store for Apple users, and for Android users you can get it on Google Play
