I'm hungry : If you pick a hungry baby up they may try rooting around for a bottle or breast. they could start suckling their fingers and make little snorting and grunting noises.
My Diapers dirty : Change me
I'm too cold or hot: Newborns like to be bundled up and kept warm. If you put 1 more layer on the baby then you wear yourself it should be plenty.
Hold me: Babies need a lot of cuddling
Leave me alone! : Over stimulation like at big gatherings
ect can leave baby needing some quit time and space. Find a quiet place to lay
I'm sick: When nothing else works try taking babies temperature. The sick cry usually sounds different then the other cries.
No reason: What you've never had a bad day before?
Bundle baby up snug and hold him/her close
Put a ticking clock near the baby it reminds them of mothers heartbeat
Lay baby on your knees and pat it's back
bicycle babies legs to get rid of gas
Put baby in a snugly and go for a walk
rub babies tummy
Give baby something to suck
Put your baby down and let her cry for a while.
• Call a friend or relative and ask for advice.
• Give yourself a break and let someone else take over.
• Put on some quiet music to distract yourself.
• Take deep breaths.
• Remind yourself that nothing is wrong with your baby
