  • You will learn your baby's different cries... and get things figured out. At first, it is stressful.. But with time, things do get easier.

  • With time, you will figure it out. At first, it's kind of a process of elimination. It takes time, but you really will know. =)

  • I know it might seem scary and confusing right now, but you will figure it out. Usually newborns eat every 2-4 hours so if its been that amount of time since she's eaten and she's crying...well then she's probably hungry. If she's crying and its been a little bit since you've changed her diaper or she pooped, well then maybe that's what's wrong. If she's fed, has a clean diaper, and is still crying...well then maybe she just wants to be held close to you. Its really just a guessing game for the first few weeks and you just have to try everything until you've found out the reason she is crying. But pretty soon you'll have it all figured out. Don't worry! We've all been there and we all get through it! Congratulations! :)
