If it is perfectly normal for your baby to cry, there is obviously no question of sitting idly by while waiting for it to pass! The advice of psychologist Anne Bacus and her 5-point action plan to calm her tears.
1. He's crying? Act as quickly as possible
Fortunately, it is a long time ago when a toddler screamed so that he could "make" his lungs. If from 3 months, and even more beyond 6 months, you can allow yourself to postpone his response by a few minutes, it is imperative the first months to intervene as soon as he calls you with his cries. No way to let baby cry.
- His tears are a draft of communication: not to answer him is to refuse the exchange.
- If you let him cry too long, he will not know exactly why he was crying at first and it will be almost impossible to calm him down.
- To act, to try something, even if it does not work right away, will help you to understand the crying of baby and to better support them.
2. Eliminate the medical causes of crying
Before anything else, you must of course make sure that your baby does not suffer.
- Any manifestation of cries different from those that it usually causes (especially if they are very acute, they occur suddenly in the middle of the night, or they look like continuous moans) should lead you to consult a doctor.
- Same thing if your toddler is feverish, coughing, running nose, vomiting or having loose stools.
