Few reasons why your baby might be crying
-Hunger is the most common reason but need not be so always
-Discomfort either because its too cold or he s feeling warm due to over wrapping
-Tummy troubles like indigestion/colic and reflux(bringing up the milk after a feed)
-Simply tired
-Needs attention as he grows older and may just want a little cuddle

How to handle?
-Stay calm and show patience in allowing him to settle down
-Distract your baby to some music /toys or simply show him the moving fan. Most babies just love to watch the fan rotate ( can get boring after a time ;))
-Feed him if necessary
-Talk to your baby and comfort him by just holding him close . Tell him a simple animated story or a rhyme
-The right medication and a light massage on the tummy can help relieve tummy aches
-Rock your baby to sleep to end his crying and help him relax

If nothing works and you sense serious trouble , CALL your doctor and get help
