If anything crying helps you have a cranky, crabby, crazy baby. And no it certainly does not help lungs to expand. If that’s of any consolation. Hell no.
Like i say babies are human beings. I still stick by it. Would you leave your best friend alone if she’s crying her heart out over a
dead lost boyfriend ? Worse when she is not comfy? Still worse if she is hungry?
Babies cry , generally and particularly for five reason. Mostly. Usually.
They are hungry
They are not comfy – too hot , too cold
They want to burp
They need to
whistle like a railway engine – pass gas!
They are sleepy
So save yourself , her lungs, every one’s sanity and your baby’s well being by making a check list of the above.
And no crying absolutely does not help lungs to expand – neither yours, nor your babies.
