A crying baby is not uncommon in the U.S. and the problem is often exacerbated by poor breastfeeding practices, but the reality is that crying babies are not all bad.
“They’re normal babies,” says Laura, who did not want her last name published to protect her baby’s privacy.
“Sometimes it’s the best thing to let them cry.
They’re happy, they’re not crying, and they don’t need to cry,” she says.
But when a crying baby comes to your attention, you should treat them with care.
Laura, whose newborn is six months old, says that in general, babies should be taken to the hospital when they are upset or show signs of distress.
But babies who cry should also be looked after with a nurse or pediatrician.
If a crying infant is placed in the lap of a doctor or nurse, Laura says that the doctor or doctor should gently hold the infant and try to comfort them.
“You’re not doing it wrong if you’re doing it well, but you’re not being nice,” she explains.
“The baby is crying, so if you try to hold them you’re probably doing it right.”
She recommends that babies who need to be placed on a nurse should be placed in a nurse’s office or other appropriate space.
“It’s not okay to hold the baby and keep it in your lap, and it’s not ok to put them in a crib or car seat,” Laura says.
“And if you see them crying, just call the nurse and say, ‘Look, they need help.’
It doesn’t have to be a hospital.”
You should also look for a crying-baby nurse at your local hospital, says Lorna, who is now a nurse practitioner at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
If your baby is having trouble breathing, you can call 911, she says, but that’s not a good way to go about it.
“If you’re trying to hold your baby down and you’re holding your baby and it sounds like they’re crying, call 911 and then say, OK, this is how you’re going to get your baby out of here.
Don’t hold the crying baby and just say, Okay, they have a breathing problem, but they’re OK.
You need to get the baby to the nearest emergency room.”
The good news is that if you are able to calm the baby down, you’re in good hands, says Laura.
“Your baby will calm down and will probably go back to sleep, so don’t worry about it,” she adds.
If you are unable to calm your baby, you could try a soothing facial expression.
“When your baby looks like they are crying, hold your hand over their face and say gently, ‘Your baby is happy.’
If you see that baby crying and then you start to say something like, ‘You should have gone to the doctor and gotten this done, but it looks like your baby was crying, okay?’
They’ll just laugh,” says Lornsa.
She recommends holding your breath as you look for signs of comfort, but she advises that you do not push your baby to do anything.
“Hold your baby in your arms,” she tells mothers.
“Make them feel safe.
Don�t tell them to stop crying, because they won’t.
And just hold them.”
Laura, Lornas and Laura’s newborn baby, Isabelle, are at home with the grandparents and the other parents.
