KEEPING CALM ABOUT CRYING Every infant cries; it’s a part of being a baby. Yet crying still puts many of us on edge; it’s simply instinctive to want to make it go away. It’s important to know the big range of normal and when there might be a concern. The Big Normal “Unsoothable” crying represents 5% to 15% of all infant restlessness. Infants cry increasingly from of age, peaking at Dramatically improves after 2 WEEKS 6 to 8 WEEKS 3 to 4 months Most babies cry unpredictably, resistant to our best efforts to comfort. of age Babies tend to cry most in the evening, when we’re all exhausted and run down. Even normal, healthy babies may cry for long periods—an hour or more—and may appear to be in pain. Could It Be Colic? Does your infant cry Colic has traditionally been defined using the rule of 3s.

If you feel frustrated or angry, place your baby in the crib on her back and step away. Take turns with your partner. Never shake a baby!
