It is not logical or very compassionate to let a newborn baby cry themselves to sleep. A newborn is all about instinct. She cries because she is hungry, tired, needs a diaper change, in pain or simply because she needs to be held close. Babies need more than just food and hygiene. They need to be cuddled and loved with a "hands on" approach. A newborn simply isn't made to be able to soothe herself. That's what a mother is for. Babies need cuddling and warmth to feel loved and secure. It's really unfair to let a baby cry himself to sleep. They learn how to trust their parents by their parent's willingness to help them when they need it, why do people do this. i am just wondering what part of a mothers brain tells her this is ok? i have heard so many moms" baby just cries and i know hes tired" "he or she has thrown up from crying for son long??" why is this ok to a mother? im so lost and feel so bad for these children . and if they use the excuse they need to just cry cause they are tired and there is nothing wrong with them,,,thats a crock of bull seriously you should not have had a kid if you werent gonna be patient and nerturing to them they are babies.. some moms expect too much
