Baby is a priceless gift given by god to a mother. A mother feels heavenly when the baby smiles. At the

reason behind baby’s cry unless they have some knowledge about the common reasons behind their

struggle and the ways to soothe them. The current articles shares few common reasons behind baby’s cry

Babies cannot speak so; cry is the only language for them to express different feelings like hunger, pain,

need for sleep, fear and many other feelings. It is quite tricky for the first-time mother to expect the

reason behind baby’s cry.



You will perceive hunger as prominent reason behind the cry. This is the case of most of the mothers.

Rather than judging with your perception, knowing about the signs of hunger will help you make a

perfect judgment. You can even feed the baby before he cries if you can identify the signs of hunger.

Few signs of hunger in babies include fussing, smacking of lips, rooting and putting their hands to their

mouth. You can calm it down by feeding them.


Dirty diaper

This another common reason behind baby’s cries. Some children will notify you immediately about the

dirty diaper by crying while some will tolerate it for a while. As soon as you change a diaper, you can see

wherever they want. In fact, it is very hard for them; they may cry expressing their need to sleep when

they are exhausted.
