Mistake No. 2: Not Letting Your Infant Cry It Out
When babies cry, it's a normal parental reaction to want them to stop. We feel like something is wrong and as parents we need to fix it. But crying is part of being a baby. Your baby could be perfectly fine: well fed, clean diapers, rested – and they will still cry. Often it's ok to let your baby cry it out. However, if your infant cries for more than an hour, or the crying is associated with a fever, rash, or persistent vomiting, call your pediatrician.
