Parents who are in a crisis of crying babies are immediately in a panic. In fact, parents who do not yet know the babies adequately can sometimes get nervous and argue because of the crying voice. However, babies can cry after birth due to many reasons. All problems are eliminated by discovering why the baby is crying.
1. She can cry when she is hungry.
Especially in the neonatal period, babies should be breastfed whenever they want. If 3 hours have passed since the feeding period, the baby should be awakened and milk should be given. The most effective communication between mother and baby is through breastfeeding. So babies tell their hunger by crying. In particular, the baby gets hungry quickly in the first months, as the stomach is small and digestion is fast. He quickly identifies this because he is hungry.
2. The house may feel warm
It is thought that babies will feel cold quickly because they are small.
This can offend little babies; this can cause them to cry. Keeping the temperature of the environment at 21 to 24 degrees is suitable for babies not to be bored from the heat.
3. Getting bored with their clothes
Based on the idea that babies will get cold after getting out of the mother’s womb, many families want to dress them thick and tight. However, it is enough to be dressed one layer more than your own clothes. Because thick and over-dressed babies can feel uncomfortable and cry because they are getting hot. In the babies born on time, it is sufficient to wear the headgear for the first 10 days and for the babies who arrive early. Besides, it is appropriate to wear gloves differently during the first 1 month. There is no need to use gloves after the first month because babies will want to look at their hands and make skin contact.
4. Airless environment can make you cry
In cold periods, the heater starts to burn in the houses.
For this reason, babies can be uncomfortable in stuffy environments. However, babies should be taken out frequently, and the home environment should be ventilated frequently.
5. Their nose can become clogged
Adults can breathe through the mouth and nose, but babies do not know how to breathe through the mouth. If the baby’s nose is blocked, crying may occur because he does not know how to breathe through the mouth. Especially since the environment dries in the heating houses, the mucosa of the babies also dries and swells. Accordingly, nasal congestion becomes continuous. The nose of the baby should be cleaned with a saline solution recommended by the pediatrician. In this way, crying can be prevented.
6. Gas disturbs
Babies may experience gas pain in the 2nd or 3rd week. This process climbs until the second months and then gradually disappears. This is because babies’ bowels are getting used to the new order.
This is a temporary process. As the baby’s intestines mature and starts moving left and right, the issue of gas will be resolved. In heavy gas tables called colic, the massages recommended by the pediatrician, some gas medications, abundant skin contact, and crying accompanied by relaxing music can be alleviated.
7. Food allergies
A topic that can be mixed with gas, but has become popular recently, is food allergies. Some foods that mothers eat during breastfeeding or some foods used in breast milk deficiency can cause food allergy in babies. In food allergies, the only symptom is not crying, but if the accompanying baby has eczema rashes, severe vomiting, serious rashes on the edge of his butt, and bloody-mucous poop, he may consider allergies. With the help of a pediatrician, crying problems related to food allergies can also be resolved by arranging the mother’s own nutrition.
Here, too, there are accompanying criteria such as fever, vomiting, decreased absorption, and decreased weight. Pediatrics specialist is a condition that needs to be consulted. Some babies can also pour sand. Some vitamins taken by mothers, some vitamins given to the baby or metabolic problems can cause this. Babies also cry when they pour sand.
Breast-fed babies can poop 6-8 times a day, sometimes they may not poop for a week. If the babies are happy, there is no problem, but on the contrary, if there is a condition such as restlessness, crying, swelling in the abdomen, it is necessary to consult the expert. In addition, some babies may have cracks in their breeches when they are constipated. In this case, babies can also cry.
10. Ear infections
Infections in the ear, accumulation of fluid in the ear can also cause crying.
When babies cry, they can touch their ears or pull them. Therefore, it is necessary to go to a specialist.
11. Teething periods
Some babies have a teething period without any problems, but some of them enter this period with both crying and different ailments. In the teething process, crying, restlessness, vomiting, diarrhea, rash around the mouth may occur. During her teething, some herbal gels can be given by pediatricians.
