All the little children cry, and you should prepare for this before they decided to become parents!Cry babies reported hunger, pain, fear, need for sleep and many other things, what else can not say in words.But how can parents learn to understand, why the child is crying ?!
As a rule, the problem of "misunderstanding" causes of child crying faces almost 100% of the parents, especially at first.In this article, we gathered the most common reasons why a child may cry a little.If you do not know because of what your child is upset, move down our list, and you are sure to find the cause of your crumbs induce tears.
reason №1: «Hunger»
thought that the child was hungry comes first to mind any mother heard her crying baby.But do not pop the same breast or bottle to him at every sob ?!
Learn to recognize the signs of hunger, which in the future will help you to feed your baby before he cries.These characteristics include:
- thumb sucking;
- turning their heads toward the che
Some children have also other signs that they are hungry, and my mother eventually begins to distinguish them.But note that if your child eats mixtures, feeding should be held strictly by the hour, or is threatened with overfeeding.
reason №2: «dirty diapers»
Some children express their dissatisfaction with dirty diapers immediately, as soon as it is filled or the child pokakal, but there are children who suffer a dirty diaper for a long time.This is the risk of diaper rash and the development of fungal infections (especially girls).
Even if your child does not express any complaints about the diaper, you need to change it every three - four hours and before going out and after each bowel movement!
Reason №3: «The need for sleep»
Many adults believe that if a child wants to sleep, he can fall asleep anywhere.But it is not so!Yes, as a rule, in the first month of life, children are sleeping most of the time, but later they can express their desire not to go to bed "pecking" nose and crying and fussiness (especially if they are very tired).
Some parents whose child is four - five weeks, according to the cause of children crying of colic in the gut, but in half of these cases, children act up not because they have colic, and due to the fact that they want to sleep.
Try to take the child in his arms, gently press it to themselves and quietly tell him something in your ear.Rather, in a moment - the other your child starts to yawn, and even a couple of minutes - is a sweet sleep!
reason №4: «The need for communication»
first months of life children need a lot of tactile communication with parents (simply - they need lots of hugs).They also have a strong need for individual contemplation of their parents, they need to hear their voices, palpitations, and even their unique smell.Crying baby can be kind of a request to take him in her arms.
If you do not support the idea of wearing a baby in her arms, "not to teach their hands," just try to stand near the crib, pat the kid on the cheeks, head handles.If you, on the contrary, for a long time want to keep the baby in her arms, but for you it is physically difficult to get yourself a sling or a kangaroo carrier, which will greatly facilitate the strain on your hand, and you will be able to go about their business without parting with a child.
reason №5: «tummy ache»
abdominal pain caused by colic and flatulence can cause severe crying.If your baby is inconsolable crying for three hours a day and more, and is repeated at least three times a week, it's colic.
If your baby cries immediately after feeding and often bustling, it may be caused by abdominal pain.Many moms give their babies before feeding droplets from bloating based simethicone (such as "Espumizan", "Bobotik", "Infacol" and others) or dill waters.But these tools eliminate colic for a short time, but not forever.
(By the way, from personal experience I can say that there is one tool that helped me save his baby from colic and problems with a chair (we were constipation) just two days. This tool is called "Bifiform Baby" (droplets).With the first child, I tried everything possible, but nothing helped, and we suffered from colic to five months ...)
If you suspect that your child GAZ cars, try to put it on the back, grab him by the legs and performLeg movement as riding a bicycle.You can also pat tummy clockwise or put the baby for a few minutes on the belly.
Please note that in some cases the cause of abdominal pain in infants is not as harmless as colic.Pain in the stomach can cause stomach upset, allergic to milk, lactose intolerance, reflux (heartburn), constipation and bowel obstruction.Therefore, if you see that the child is suffering from pain in the abdomen, and it lasts for several hours, call your doctor!
Reason №6: «The air in the stomach»
If your baby cries after feeding, it may be because he swallowed air.In this case, it may help to burp.Make your child a vertical 'small stands' or put it on his tummy to excess air came out of the stomach.
Children swallow air when feeding any - both artificial (bottle) and in breast.If you are breastfeeding, try to take the baby the nipple from the first time and will not be interrupted during feeding.If a child suddenly loses his chest, hold it vertically so that it belched trapped air, and only then continue feeding.If the baby is feeding mixtures, get a special bottle or pacifier with bleeding.
reason №7: «uncomfortable temperature»
If the child is too cold (for example, when you stripped to change a diaper) or too hot, it may start to cry in protest.
Newborns like heat, but they do not tolerate heat!When you put the child put his clothes on one layer more than themselves.As a rule, children are more likely cry from what they are cold.
reason №8: «Something is preventing»
Children may be concerned that they do something to prevent.It can be hair, turning around a baby fingers and disrupt blood flow;sensitivity to clothing (eg, barbed tissue);an unfortunate position for sleeping or feeding;bright light;came under a sheet toys, etc.
Try to assess the situation and find out whether there is something that could irritate your baby.
reason №9: «Teething»
The fact that the children cry when they have teething, I know all the parents, without exception.Some kids worry more, some less, but all of them sooner or later express their displeasure cry.
If you are not sure that the child is teething, try as he could move the gums with your finger.You can find solid milk tooth under the gum, and then you will know exactly what is a cause of worry your baby in it.
Usually, the first teeth begin to cut between 4-th and 7-mym month, but may in the past.Help ease the pain of a special dental gels and droplets (eg "Dentol" or "Bebident"), which are sold without a prescription at the pharmacy.
reason №10: «Poor health»
If the cause of crying is not the natural needs of the child, and, in spite of your consolation, he continues to cry, it may well be that the baby is not feeling well or unwell.
Measure the temperature and check the child for signs of any illness.Crying sick child is completely different from the weeping caused by hunger or desire to sleep.If your child is unrestrained and non-stop crying, trust your instincts and call your doctor at home.
So why the baby cries ?!Full tummy ?!Check.Dirty diapers ?!Check.Temperature?!Check.Everything is fine?!What then is the cause of crying ?!Every child there are hundreds of reasons, because of what he can cry!And even the wisest parents can not read the minds of their children, and the children just can not talk or they do not have enough words to tell us exactly what they want.So do not be afraid to use trial and error - the only way you can determine what you need for your child!
