Understanding Your Baby’s Cry

Understanding Your Baby's Cry | Summit Healthcare | Show Low, AZAll babies cry, but not all crying has the same cause.

ONE OF THE first things a baby does when he enters the world is cry. At birth, crying is a way for your baby to announce his arrival and express his displeasure at how much colder and less comfortable the outside world is. From that moment, crying becomes his best way of communicating his needs and wants until he is able to talk.
