A crying baby isn’t always that easy to interpret. Is he or she hungry, thirsty, tired, sick, having tummy pain, separation anxiety..?

Find our experts’ answers here, together with help from many other parents.

Especially during a baby’s first few months of living, crying really is one of the few ways he or she can communicate that something isn’t right. But it isn’t always that easy to know what to do.

For babies not suffering from colic, the time spent crying usually peaks at around the age of six weeks. After that, it slowly decreases, even if you, as an exhausted mom or dad may not notice any difference until later.
