All the Reasons Babies Cry

All the Reasons Babies Cry

Is it possible to diagnose what our babies are crying about from the sounds they make? Molly and Blaire discuss the different cries that occur when our babies are hungry, tired, bored, and more.

How can we tell what our babies need from the sound of their cries? Here's how to play detective when your baby is upset - and how to try and problem-solve when it seems like nothing is working.

Molly and Blaire discuss:

  • The different sounds babies make when they are hungry, tired/uncomfortable, bored, or sick
  • Crying spells
  • Jetsons thermometers

Sometimes your baby is hungry, sometimes they have a hair wrapped around their toe, and sometimes they just need a good cry - so do adults! But just because it's normal for babies to cry for no reason doesn't make it any easier for us to hear it. Sometimes all we can do is take a deep breath, maybe a bath, and remind ourselves that no baby ever hurt themselves from crying too much.
