Why Does A 10 Month Old Baby Always Cry When Lay Down And When He Is On His Stomach?
Why does a 10-month-old baby always cry when placed or lying down and when he is on his stomach he cries and if he is held, my baby is silent
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to be clarified, since when does your baby cry often? Does this complaint continue from birth until now? Are there other complaints that your baby has experienced, for example fever, vomiting, bowel movements, coughing, colds, and so on?
Crying babies can be due to many factors. Often, this happens because he feels uncomfortable, either because of his own body condition, the environment around him, or other factors, for example:
The cause of discomfort from the baby's body, for example when feeling pain, fever, tightness, colic, nausea, itching, hunger or thirst, sleepiness, teething
The cause of discomfort from the environment around the baby, for example when the diaper is wet, noisy, glare, sweltering, cold
When held, the baby will generally feel more comfortable, because he can more freely explore the surrounding environment. Not only that, by holding, the baby also feels comfortable because it is closer to the mother, just like her position when in the womb.
If your baby's complaints only occur occasionally, often this is harmless and can improve with habituation, for example by:
Do not immediately hold the baby when he cries, try first to invite him to talk, turn his attention to the things he likes, give him toys that are appropriate to his age, gently pat his buttocks, stroking his head and back
Make sure that the baby's body and the surrounding environment make him feel comfortable, for example:
Give baby clothes that are comfortable to move
Give the baby enough milk and regular feeding so that he is not hungry and thirsty
Condition the environment around the baby so that it is not too cold, hot, noisy, glare, or too many people
Change baby's diaper every wet, at least 4 hours
Create a regular schedule for your baby to sleep, shower, eat, play and other activities
If the steps above have not been successful in relieving your baby's crying, you can check it directly to the doctor or pediatrician to evaluate the possibility of other more serious causes.
