Fussy baby crying is the first and most essential form of communication an infant can do. Right after birth, the baby already has this ability. There are many reasons that can cause fussy babies: babies are hungry, babies have wet diapers, their feet are cold, babies feel tired… or even for no reason at all.
1. I have both eyes closed, eyes open and crying
Usually this is how your baby cries when it starts to sleep. I changed my expression with moderate crying, no tears. When your baby cries, mothers should prepare conditions for their babies to sleep well such as creating a quiet, warm space by turning off the television, music, turning on the night light and patting the back to lull them to sleep. In addition, babies often show signs of rubbing their eyes, crying while eyes are closed and yawning.
2. Child opened his eyes wide, opened his mouth and cried
Most of these crying babies indicate that they are hungry. At this time, the baby’s crying will be very loud, repeated, even screaming, grumpy. Mother please check the feeding time before.
Baby Crying If your baby has been nursing for 2-3 hours, it is important to continue feeding. If the baby has not eaten for a long time, the mother checks the amount of milk she has just fed to supplement.
3. The baby cried loudly and violently after eating
A newborn baby’s loud cries immediately after eating are often a sign of colic. Your baby will be upset until belching. Mom can hold the baby with her head on her shoulder and then gently stroke and pat her back.
You can also put the baby on the knees, one hand support the chest and lift the chin, the other hand gently pat the back. Mommy remember to put a thin towel under your chin, in case the baby will turn up when belching.
4. Sudden cry
If the infant’s crying appears to be sleepy or hungry, there will be previous signs of refusing to play, suddenly becoming quieter. In case your baby was playing actively but suddenly cried, mom check your diaper. If the diaper is not wet, mom continue to check on the baby. For babies who are learning to wean, maybe food spills and sticks to the shirt, making them uncomfortable.
5. The baby cries loudly but has no tears
In the case of crying and calling for her mother, the baby cries out loud, maybe the baby is asking for benefits like “mom take me”, “I want to play more”. At that time, please look into your eyes, soothe and spend time with your children.
6. Colic syndrome – upset stomach
Colic is a term used to describe the crying of an infant with a constant state in physically healthy babies. Children often fussy and cry from 6 pm until midnight but the mother cannot calm down. However, at other times of the day, the baby still eats well and sleeps well, it is crying stomach problems. This phenomenon will gradually decrease as the child grows up without affecting the child’s health and development.
Drying in the stomach is not a disease, so if the child is fussy and accompanied by other symptoms such as sweating or anorexia, parents should take their children to the pediatrician to find out.
