At the time of birth, crying in infants can be used as an indicator of infant health. Usually, crying or not is used as one of the points in the APGAR score assessment conducted in the first, 5th, or 10th minute after the baby is born. With this assessment, it can be assessed the baby's maturity, as well as how well the baby can survive after going through labor, and how strong it can survive outside the mother's womb.
Even in the early days of life, babies will often cry a lot. Crying can be used as a way for babies to communicate with people around them. When a baby cries, this can mean that he is hungry, thirsty, his diaper is wet, sleepy, or also feels discomfort in his body due to other causes. As we get older in the baby, the frequency of crying can be increasingly rare, because the baby can adapt well to changes in the environment that is no longer comfortable in the mother's womb.
Therefore, rarely cry as your baby actually does not always indicate a disorder. During the time your baby is born crying strong, not experiencing any health problems, and your child is currently in good health, then this condition is likely not dangerous. Maybe he rarely cries because you regularly feed him before he is hungry. Maybe he rarely cries because you routinely change his diaper every time it's wet. Maybe the surrounding environment feels comfortable enough for the baby, and so on.
You need to worry, if rarely cry comes with the condition of babies who appear weak, lazy to suckle, weak, often sleep, less active, appear pale or bluish, skin feels cold, or other severe complaints appear. In this condition, you should check your child directly to the doctor or pediatrician to evaluate the possibility of dangerous diseases, such as heart problems, thyroid gland disorders, hearing loss, speech organ disorders, respiratory disorders, and so on.
