When a newborn cries for three hours a day, three days a week for a period of three weeks, it is called a crying baby according to the medical definition.

My daughter is what is called a cry baby and I need to find a way to deal with that. I keep looking for him again and again. About the clenching of the teeth, the powerlessness and the anger.
In the second night at home it starts. My daughter is just four days old. At 3 a.m. we are woken up by her screaming. is she hungry My girlfriend tries in vain to put them on. Tilda screams at her mother’s chest. Maybe she needs physical closeness and security? I take care of her and put her back on my chest. In the birth preparation course, the so-called bonding was warmly recommended to me by the midwife who gave the lecture. The best thing dads could do to their newborn child.
But not my daughter. She cannot be calmed down. Further attempts to appease her fail desperately. I might start crying, I feel like I didn’t prepare enough for the arrival of our child. It will take a few more days and nights before we understand that our daughter cries a lot and will not stop for the time being. In the first four months, she expressed her heartache several times throughout the day.
