Responding To Your Baby's Cries
Crying is the shedding of tears or welling of tears in the eyes in response to an emotional state , pain or a physical irritation of the eye. Emotions that can lead to crying include anger , happiness , or sadness. The act of crying has been defined as "a complex secretomotor phenomenon characterized by the shedding of tears from the lacrimal apparatus , without any irritation of the ocular structures", instead, giving a relief which protects from conjunctivitis. Various forms of crying are known as sobbing , weeping , wailing , whimpering , bawling , and blubbering. For crying to be described as sobbing, it usually has to be accompanied by a set of other symptoms, such as slow but erratic inhalation , occasional instances of breath holding and muscular tremor.
Pain can be hard for a child to describe. An older child may be able to describe how the pain feels or tell you whether the pain comes and goes. A toddler may complain of pain or tell you that he or she is not feeling well. But the signs of pain in an infant can sometimes be hard to recognize.
