1. My baby is crying a lot. Is there anything wrong? Page Top
All babies cry to communicate. Excessive crying does not have a firm definition and it is really defined by the parents and caregivers. If the crying is unusual and distressing to the caregiver then it is excessive.
Sudden-onset excessive crying means that the child is distressed. Distress can be pain or feeling ill.
Excessive crying with fever means that an infection may be present.
Excessive crying with vomiting may mean infection, or an obstruction in the bowel or pain in the abdomen. It almost always requires medical assessment.
