Is your baby crying non-stop? Crying is a normal part of child development. If you’ve checked to see why your baby is crying – wet diaper, hungry, needs a good cuddle – and he’s still crying, it’s okay to let him cry for a bit, then try again to soothe him. Crying can be stressful but it’s not your fault!
Prevention is CRUCIAL: adverse early experiences, like poverty or maltreatment – can weaken babies’ brain development and follow them their entire lives, placing them at greater risk for later school failure and health problems as adults.
