  • Sometimes it's because they realize they are alone and they don't like it, sometimes they are hungry, sometimes they just want to tell somebody "Hey....I'm awake here...attention...NOW" LOL

    My son is fussy when he wakes up but as soon as I hold him for a few minutes he's good to go. My DD rarely cried when she woke up. Every kid is different.

  • Well, they can't talk, so they are communicating with mon and dad.

  • Because they lack the ability to communicate their needs with words

  • I constantly have to remind my fiance that this is the only way they can communicate, lol. Sometimes he is so impatient with her! >_

  • I always wished they could wake up singing a melodic tune but I know that would'nt get the response needed :)

  • My son used to until he was about 4 months old.. then he started cooing and banging his mirror against the crib to let me know he was awake. Sometimes if they wake up in a different spot then where they fell asleep they will scream.

  • Usually because they are hungry or need to be changed.  My oldest was just fine waking up and playing by herself in her crib from the time she was like 7 months old.  It was a couple months before we realized she was actually waking at 6am, playing for an hour or so and then falling back asleep and not waking to eat until 9am.  We were wondering why she was sleeping so late, lol (she was so quiet we didn't even hear her on the baby monitor).
