There is a fine line between a baby being clingy and a baby who needs help. There are various schools of thought on how to care when a baby cries a lot. Whatever age the baby is, there is a need to find out why the baby is crying , even if you’ve done the feeding, changing of nappy, checking the basic health of your child and comforting him or her. A little extra cuddle, talking to your baby or gently stroking the back can do the trick of settling baby back to sleep or resting in the cot.
Sometimes the baby might not be as active as usual, therefore taking a minute or two to stop the washing , ironing or cooking to check him or her will give you that piece of mind, that all is well.
Getting a toddler or infant to stay in the bed and not cry while establishing a pattern of bedtime routine is one of the times you can get the most clingy baby and most tears ever.
