Baby signals for new parents


Baby signals for new parentsHaving your own baby for the first time is quite a challenge. It is very common to feel anxious and helpless because your baby can’t really talk, and you don’t know why they are crying or anything of the sort. Babies have their own special way to communicate upon birth. They give signals such as cries or some subtle gestures such as looking away from you. Here are some common signals babies give to communicate:

Crying – indicates that they may be hungry, thirsty, too hot or cold, frightened, need a cuddle or closeness with you, bored, lonely, unwell or have pain, e.g. tummy ache or earache. Check and identify the possible causes to deal with it effectively.
