18 Important Things Babies Are Trying to Tell You

Every parent knows the first year with a babyis both challenging and exciting. Your baby cries all the time, goes 'neh!',grabs their ears, and you have no idea what any of this means! Luckily, some experts decoded this uniquebaby language, and I'm here to share the clues you’ll need to figure out what your littlebundle is trying to say. Let's start with the way your baby cries. During the first four months of life, cryingis the main way babies express their needs. Here are seven types of cries to listen forand what they mean: A calling cryEver heard your baby cry for about 5 or 6 .

Seconds, and then pause for the next 20 seconds? That's a calling cry! This means that your baby has been alone fora while and now desperately needs your attention. If you don't respond right away, you'll hearthis fascinating cycle of crying a couple more times. So pick your baby up and give them all theloving they need! A hunger cryThis type of cry is very similar to a calling cry with one little catch – if you don'tget in there right away, the crying becomes hysterical quickly. .

Your baby may also start rotating their headand making smacking sounds with their mouth. This is a clear sign that it's time to feed. A pain cryIf you hear a pain cry once, you'll never confuse it with any of the others. This crying is flat and constant. But small hysterical outbursts mean the painis increasing and you should call the doctor as soon as possible. This type of crying is also very loud, unlessyour baby isn't strong enough to make loud noises. .

A physiological cryBabies deal with all kinds of bodily functions like us, from having gas to peeing and pooping. And these can cause them more discomfort thanyou think! Thankfully, babies usually let you know rightaway by whining and squeaking as they cry. A sleep crySleep is another problem for babies – sometimes they just can't! In this case their crying sounds like an offendedand smooth whining, followed by loads of yawning. Sleepy babies also tend to rub their eyesand ears, so you can look out for these red flags as well. .

A discomfort cryThis crying sounds very irritated and often comes together with fidgeting. Your baby can also flail their arms and legsand arch their backs. This usually means time to check their diaperor change their clothes. They may either be too hot or too cold. A bored cryThis one is extremely common – your baby cries, you try doing everything you can butstill can't figure out what's wrong. Easy, your baby is simply frustrated or bored! Take them for a walk outside or around thehouse. .

A simple environment change can stop the cryingquickly. Okay, so now that you got the different cryingscenarios down, it's time to talk about the other sounds your baby makes. Yup, all these strange sounds have their ownmeaning! Australian pediatrician Dr. Priscilla Dunstanhas been studying early childhood sounds for more than 20 years. She examined 3 to 4-month old babies of differentnationalities during her research. According to Dunstan, your baby starts activelymaking communication sounds only after 4 months old. .

Before that the sounds are just a primaryreflex that needs to be figured out. So here's a little “sound” cheat sheet:• “Neh” means “Hey, I'm hungry here, feed me!” This sound comes from your baby pushing theirtongue up to the roof of their mouth, triggering the sucking reflex. • “Eh” is “I think I'm gonna burpnow!” With that, the excess air starts leaving thebaby's esophagus, and your baby tries to release it from their mouth. • “Owh” means “I'm so sleepy and tired!” .

Your baby just folds their lips before yawningand this sound comes out! • “Heh” is baby speak for “I'm notfeeling it, I’m uncomfortable.” The main reason is probably an unpleasantfeeling of some sort. The baby can give away their feelings by constantlymoving and jerking their hands and feet as well. • “Eairh” indicates “I have a soretummy, help!” This strange sound can turn into a moan, asyour baby stretches the belly and exhales. Don't ignore these symptoms – take actionright away. And that's basically all the baby sounds youneed to know! .

Feel like a baby whisperer yet? Wait, I have one more important lesson foryou – baby movements. Small babies have their own body languagethat can help you detect their needs and moods. Let’s take a look: Arching their backsParents know that babies under 2 months old arch their backs a lot. In most cases it's just a typical responseto pain or colic but there are a couple of exceptions to this rule. If your baby arches their back during eating,it's a sign of reflux, after eating it means .

They're full. And if your baby has passed the 2-month oldmark but still does it, no need to worry – they're simply tired or in a bad mood. Rotating their headThis is your baby's way of calming down. You usually see it when they're about to fallasleep or hang out with people they don't know yet. Good news is that you can help your baby. Just gently rub their back and they'll instantlyrelax. Grabbing their earsThis may look pretty scary but it's completely .

Natural – your baby is simply exploringtheir body! However, if ear rubbing is followed by intensecrying, you should definitely visit the doctor to find the source of the problem. Clenching their fistsFist or no fist shows how hungry your baby is. A perfectly relaxed hand means that they'refull, while strong fist shows that they need baby food right this minute. Noticing this little detail in time can helpyou prevent the hungry crying and save you tons of time and stress! .

Lifting their legsDuring the first months of your baby's life, colic and tummy pain are almost inevitable. Your baby tries to cope with it on their ownby lifting their legs to ease those unpleasant sensations. But any additional help from you is totallywelcome, tummy rubs are awesome! Jerking their armsLoud sounds, bright lights, and sudden wake-ups provoke the startle reflex in little babies. As a result, they jerk their arms out of fear. In this case, your job is to comfort yourbaby and make sure that they're alright. .

And that’s it! That's everything you need to know to readyour baby's mind! Pediatricians recommend parents talk to theirbabies as often as possible. Show them all the things around them, explainhow they work, or tell cool stories, even if you feel like they don't understand you.
