Tips for ParentBy Onlymyhealth Editorial Team / Jan 07, 2021

Parenthood is a new experience altogether, especially for first-time parents. It is not easy to take care of a newborn and therefore, many parents panic upon handling the kid. Pacifying or calming a crying baby is one of the things that is no less than a herculean task for them. According to Dr. Vivek Jain, Director and Head- Neonatology at Fortis Hospital, Shalimar Bagh, the most common questions that parents ask is why the baby cries so much and how to soothe them. Crying is a natural tendency of babies and they will cry for every given reason whether they are hungry or they are sleepy or they are having any issues. This is natural and therefore, parents do not need to worry much about the baby crying. When the baby is crying you must check for the following:

  • If the baby is hungry
  • If the baby is not wet due to peeing in the diaper
  • If the environment and temperature is suitable for the child

These are common reasons for a baby's cry but if the baby is crying inconsolably, you must see a doctor. It might be possible that there is any pathological reason which is causing the baby to cry.  After you figure out the reason, work on that. You can try to change the environment to see if the baby stops crying.
