Babies Cry. Have a Plan.
Hearing a baby cry for the first time is a wonderful.
Hearing a baby cry on and on can be frustrating for any caregiver.
All babies cry, some more than others. Crying usually peaks in the first 6-8 weeks. Crying for 2-3 hours each day in the first 3 months is considered normal.
It’s important to have a crying plan that you (or anyone watching your baby) can follow when the crying starts.
Ask some of your friends or family if you can put them on your crying plan. Keep a list of people you can call if you need help during a crying period. Make sure anyone who is going to watch your baby knows the crying plan, including other people they can call.
