Crying

Do you let your LO cry for a few minutes or do you run to them right away??

Re: Crying

  • Honestly it depends, I will let him cry/fuss for a few minutes if I have just laid him down to sleep and I know he is tired and will fall right back asleep. Sometimes he just needs a minute to get comfortable and readjust to laying down in his crib. Otherwise I will usually pick him right away.

  • It depends... if I had just changed, fed, and burped her - I will let her cry a bit. She usually calms down and moves on.  If it's been a while since I have done any of the previous tasks, I will move because she probably does need something.

    H made her cry it out a week ago because he wanted some time with just me, and she had just been changed and fed. I felt bad, but it turned out OK.

  • Unless I'm in the shower or something that I can't stop doing immediately, I go her right away. Everything I've read says that a new born is too young to cry it out and can never be too spoiled. My H on the other hand is willing to let her cry and it drives me nuts!

    LO really only ever cries at night if he is hungry.  He only gets to the crying phase if I do not hear his quieter fussing before that.  But yes I do get up and go to him right away. 

    In fact during the day I go to him right away if I hear him getting really fussy.  

    I don't like it when he cries Sad

  • Now I go immediately. Once we get a routine, it will be based on the noise and time and situation and his temperament. I am still getting to know him.

  • I try to pick him up right away but I have other kids that need me too so sometimes he has to cry for a few minutes, unfortunately.

    This is my plan. Right now I go immediately because I know he needs something. As he ages I will gage the situation.

  • You know your baby best. Yes, you are still learning her different types of cries right now but you will pick up on the different ones soon.
    On a different note, were you able to find formula that works for you? I know that has also been a stressful situation for you. I hope you were able to get it resolved!
  • So far I am going to him right away because he's only fussy when he needs something usually a diaper change. I feel like I am changing SO many diapers!!!
    But I will wait until his eyes open because sometimes he whines but is just sleepy.

    I do let her cry for a little before I go pick her up. I have noticed her cries are all different. However in the middle of the night I tend to just go to her more because the screaming is constant for almost an hour to 2 hours. As for the formula situation, yes we finally have. Thank goodness! She is now on Nutramigen from Emfamil. It's expensive but I personally don't care as long as she's eating something. She still is just getting used to it and only eating 1 ounce every 2 hours but they said 2/3 every 4 hours so we aren't stressing too much. It is a prescription based over the counter formula. Fingers crossed it works!! Thanks for asking.

    I'm so glad you found something that works!! It's great not to have to deal with feeding issues on top of getting used to your baby right? So glad you found something :) 

  • Unless I am on the toiled and literally can't get there I go get her right aways. If its at night I try talking to her first then if that doesn't work I pick her up. From what I have read newborns don't get spoiled and should be soothed right away.

  • Our LO is 5 weeks old and we have a good routine down now.   I put him to bed last night, he was asleep but with in a few minutes he was screaming.   I needed to get a few things done and I knew he was fed, burped, dry, and warm so I let him scream.   He screamed/cried/fussed for maybe 5 minutes then quieted right down.
    Yes I hated to do it but sometimes I think they just get out of sorts and need that few minutes to kind of "get a grip".  To be honest there are times even as a 3rd time mom I need a few moments to regroup.   Bed time is a frustrating time for me since I am especially tired and I know that he will either go right to bed or be a fuss bucket.

    I also know that if he sleeps for 4 hours then when he wakes up to eat I will be up for 2 hours then every hour after that.  For example last night he went to bed at 10 up at 2 then slept till 3 then up till 5 then up at 6 then 7 then 8 then slept till 10.

    I usually go check it out. I don't always pick her up right away--especially if she has just been fed, changed, and burped.
