Babies can be hard to read, even though you spend countless hours around them. The only way you can tell what they need is to carefully watch the signs they give you and trust your instinct. It's easy to tell when your baby is happy, but what about when they're uncomfortable or in pain? Are there any signs your baby is uncomfortable that you should look out for? Fortunately, there are several tell-tale symptoms of discomfort that every mother should know about.
Although your baby may only exhibit one symptom — or they may use them all at once — having an uncomfortable baby is difficult, no matter their level of pain. You might read the symptoms and determine that they're in pain, but knowing the source of their discomfort can be even harder.
Luckily, once you recognize these signs of discomfort, you can continue to watch and help your baby. Since each sign usually points to a specific type of discomfort, you'll have a better idea of what kinds of sicknesses or situations to look out for. If the discomfort doesn't subside, be sure to take your baby in to the doctor, where they'll hopefully be able to ease the discomfort.
