Dr.Su Laurent: All babies cry and babies cry for one for the reasons. Usually babies will cry because they are hungry that are frustrate. They will cry sometimes because they are just very sleepy and they want to go to sleep. Babies will cry because sometimes they don’t know why they are crying they may be frustrated may be something to real the babies trying to tell us some thing that we don’t understand the most of us will say the small babies, are usually crying for reason. And if we have try simple things like removing that pooey nappy, feeding them and they still crying the best thing to do is to leave them in a quite place in their cot just after and unusually they will go to sleep. I think the one of the problems is that it’s very hard as a parent, to hear your baby cry and not be able to do something about it. And we all do this, I have got 3 children and it gets easier with each child. But we will do this you don’t want your baby to cry, and if you feel if you put them down and they cry for a moment, you pick them up again and you walk around with them and its often very difficult to know what’s the best thing to do. A baby crying insistingly is often best handed over to somebody else to have a little guide. And as I said often best just left to in a quite place to go to sleep. Problem crying the term is more than 3 hours a day. And if you tell me most babies don’t cry for anything like 3 hours a day, they cry for short but usually because they are hungry, and usually always spend well to feed.
