Can a baby be TOO calm?

I just started worrying because since Sunday morning my baby has been extremely relaxed. He still smiles and looks at his toys, but he's not fussing or crying. Should I just count my blessings? He's almost 3 months.

  • Count your blessings. My son was that way at first but then it all went down hill. Now he is 7 months old and he is crazy!

  • Sure, you should count your blessings. As long as your baby is not :LETHARGIC, then I believe it is fine.

  • I concur.. as long as he's still doing everything else normally, no crying or fussing is great! Enjoy it : )

  • I'm not so sure. If it is something that you have noticed then your baby may have a medical or developmental issue. Try to think about any things that led up to this time - illness, immunizations, change in routine, letting baby cio, anything. Are you sure your baby is hearing. If hearing seems to be a problem when you check, don't panic right away because it could just be wax buildup.

    I think parents should be more worried about the babies that are too calm, passive, sleep through the night, and sleep easily by themselves than the babies that cry a lot and let their needs/wishes be known. Survival is hardwired in babies brains. If the behavior continues talk to the baby's doctor and make sure the doctor listens.
