Understand my cry. I do not have words
Not only me all my age group friends cry, i need comfort and care. can you give that?
I know sometimes itâ€™s easy to work out what we want, but sometimes it isnâ€™t easy to crack the code â€ścryâ€ť. I cry because, i (am) (have)
wanting a cuddle
a dirty or wet nappy
being too hot or too cold
There may be times of the day when i tends to cry a lot and canâ€™t be comforted. Specially early evening is the most common time for this to happen. This can be hard for you mom as itâ€™s often the time when youâ€™re most tired and least able to cope. But i do not have words. Still u take care of me. i love you so much for that.
But please never shake me.Shaking me moves my head violently, and can cause bleeding and brain damage.
Some of my friend cry and seem unsettled around the time of a feed. If youâ€™re breastfeeding, give me good attachmentthat helps. You can drop-in to hospital and ask for help from lactation nurse, or talk to my pediatrician.
Try keeping a note of my crying and its pattern. Sometimes, crying during feeds can be a symptom of reflux, a common condition in which i bring back milk after feeds. Speak to pediatrician for more information and advice.
