Crying is the first language through which your little one communicates with you. Hence, it is utmost important for you to know what the baby is trying to say. Your child may be hungry, sleepy, in pain or may be going through some health issues but how will it be communicated? The only language a newborn knows is crying.
Hence, take a glance on the kinds of baby cry which are the ways of communication between newborn babies and mothers:
The hunger reflex:
This is the type of cry giving a shrieking sound while baby gives a peck toward mother’s breast. The sound is produced like ‘neh‘ as it comes when the baby tries to put his tongue on mouth’s top part.
The sleepy reflex:
This kind of cry is mostly accompanied by the rubbing of eyes and yawning. When the baby cries followed with the rub and the yawn, understand that it wants to sleep.
The complaining reflex:
Now, this is something seeking a proper attention as ignorance to it may lead to more outburst of crying. When the diaper of the baby is wet enough or the child is experiencing warm or cold, they may cry in a rhythmic tone of ‘heh’. The presence of strangers can also be the cause of it.
The colic reflex:
A severe pain in the abdomen caused due to obstruction in the intestine is termed as colic. Hence, when suffering from the colic problem, the child may shout an intense cry by movements like raising of legs and arching the back. A child crying like this might be facing a gastric issue.
The scary reflux:
This type of crying is due to the fact that the child is feeling scared. The face of the baby looks startled with intense crying.
Thus, observe and understand what your child has to say. Mothers inherit this immense blessing of understanding the actions and reactions of their young ones instantly. Hence, a proper attention to the kind of cries can prove to be helpful and can soothe your baby faster.
Pay attention to your newborn child’s crying because unanswered and ignored prolonged cries can also create a bad impact on their health. When crying, listen and grasp the kind of crying and act accordingly. Hold your baby smoothly and cuddle them to give relief. Timely breastfeeding can avoid the hunger reflex.
