Hello Adindakirana Larasati,


Crying is one of the ways children communicate, especially if the child is not fluent in speech. Children cry when hungry, thirsty, feel uncomfortable with their environment, feel lonely, or feel pain. Children who are afraid of their own room, dark, noisy, can also cry before sleeping.


At the age of 1 year, children need to take a nap for 2-3 hours and sleep for 11-12 hours a night. Some children at this age begin to experience changes in sleep patterns and are sensitive to the concept of day and night. Some children find it difficult to start sleeping at night (fussing, crying) or often wake up at night.


Create the optimal sleep environment for your child:

Make sure the child has his own bed
Make sure the bedroom is dark and away from noise
Keep the gadget / do not give the child gadget / watch TV before bedtime or while in bed
Practice routine / hours of sleep at the same time every day
If the child cries you can calm him for 5-10 minutes then stay for a while.
Take a shower with warm water 20-30 minutes at night
Read a storybook or sing a sleep song for children 15-20 minutes before bedtime
If the above methods do not help, the mother can try to reduce her nap time and do more physical activity in the afternoon so that the child will be more sleepy at night.

At the age of 1 year, most children can already be invited to communicate, some children can already point to the part that they feel is sick. Mothers can try to ask which part of the body hurts the child. Children aged 1 year, usually having an eruption of teeth (teething) part of the molars, causing pain.


Make sure the child is not suffering from other complaints such as fever, nasal congestion, diarrhea, sores on the skin, which can cause discomfort. If there are new complaints that accompany the child's complaint of frequent crying, please consult further.


Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
