My daughter has random times where she starts crying a truly depressing cry and sometimes I can no doing to make her ok again. And this doesn't happen over not getting her way. She might break down and cry while watching her movie, while we're playing together or while she's playing by herself.
I was wondering if any of you have dealt with this. Alot of times I think something's hurting, like her stomach or her teeth, or maybe she bit her tongue.... and she's non-verbal so she can't tell me what hurts. But I mainly was wondering if it could be depression. Can children as young as 2 be depressed? I'm concerned because I suffered from childhood depression (didn't happen for me til I was about 10) and when she cries it is heartbreaking. And it's not the same cry as her fussy, I'm sleepy or I'm feely icky cr y. It's kind of like an "I don't know what I'm feeling so all I can do is " cry.
