Reasons Why Babies Cry

More often than not, a crying baby can drive parents and caregivers crazy, especially if the baby cries persistently. However, you need to know that crying is a common event in the lives of all babies. When a baby comes out of the womb the first thing to do is crying. By the first cry he will take some air into the lungs for the first time in their life. It is obvious that the healthy baby should cry. We all know that a baby can't tell his needs or troubles.

The only way for him to communicate with others is by crying. Babies show some other signals like feet kicking, hand waving and head turning. But the easiest way to capture the attention of others is by crying. It's hard to define whether crying is excessive, as the crying behavior varies from baby to baby. Some babies can be calmed easily but some are difficult to sooth. Many a times the baby calms down by giving breast milk or by carrying with a gentle rocking.

Sudden onset of excessive crying means the baby is distressed and needs attention. The causes of crying extends from simple reasons to life threatening conditions. While it is prudent to investigate every crying, it is also good to know that some babies cry habitually without any real reasons, but will stop gradually.
