    Reasons for baby's cries

    There are many reasons makes baby cry, but sometimes there are no reason at all. Let's find those reasons and how to handle this problems.

    Here are the most common causes that makes baby cry:

    1)Hunger
    Hunger is the most common cause, because thier belly can't receive too much food. If you feed them by breastfeeding, it may be easily digested. So try feeding him as a first response to crying. But you shouldn't feed them immediately if they just eaten.

    2)Discomfort

    It is true that babies cry for lots of reasons – after all crying is their way of communicating that life isn’t perfect for them.

    The really good thing is that breastfeeding answers most situations (apart from a wet or dirty nappy)

    hunger – breastfeeding gives food
    thirsty – breastfeeding give liquid
    sad - breastfeeding is human interaction and so makes them happier
    lonely – breastfeeding is company
    scared – breastfeeding means mummy is there to offer comfort
    in any pain (not just ear) – breastfeeding helps sooth pain – they often suggest breastfeeding while babies are having medical procedures to make it less traumatic for them
    gassy – correct latch and lots of short feeds help with gas, colic and reflux
    bored – breastfeeding is entertaining for babies
    tired – breastfeeding helps the baby sleep – there are lots of hormones in the milk that help babies fall asleep
    hot - breastfeeding and being next to mum will cool them down as mothers help regulate the baby's tempature
    cold - breastfeeding and being next to mum will warm them up as mothers help regulate the baby's tempature

    frustrated – this is the hard one – as often babies won’t feed when upset and frustrated
