Recognizing Different Cries
“Waa Or Waaaa?”
From a very early age, children have a distinguishable cry for a soiled diaper, hunger, or discomfort. In the first year of life consistently respond to your child’s cry. Studies indicate that infants picked up the most the 1st year cry the least in the 2nd year.
If your child is fussy, change positions. Talk playfully, change his diaper, or cuddle him.
Your child learns that crying yields results and parents learn to distinguish one cry from another. Presumably he will develop feelings of security.
