When does a baby’s cry get old?
FourFourThree article FourThree article A baby’s cries are often heard in the nursery, when she is nursing and the mother is crying.
But a new study has found that even when the baby is asleep, she is also crying.
In a new research published in the journal Child Development, researchers from the University of Western Australia found that babies can hear a baby crying even when she was asleep.
Baby cries are a sign of the baby’s emotional state, the researchers found.
“It’s a sign that the baby has gone through some very significant changes and is trying to process those changes and that those changes have led to some very important physiological changes,” said lead researcher Dr Amy Sosnowski.
“There’s a lot of research that suggests babies do cry but we don’t know how babies learn to cry.”
“And we don of course know what causes those changes, but we know there’s a relationship between the mother and baby and there’s some research that shows mothers can influence their babies emotional state through a baby cry.”
Researchers wanted to see if babies could hear a crying baby when they were still asleep.
So they took newborns at home and gave them a simple task: put a pen in their mouth, but when they woke up, they had to put a baby-sized piece of paper in their mouths.
The babies who were still awake when the task was given were more likely to have heard the crying.
The babies that were still sleeping were more than three times more likely than those who were asleep to have had a baby cries, but still less likely than babies who had not slept.
“I think what this study shows is babies really are learning to process their emotions,” Dr Soskowski said.
“They are really good at learning to read between the lines and what a baby is feeling and what their body wants, so it’s really important to look at what babies are experiencing and what they are experiencing, so they can respond to those emotions and react in a way that’s appropriate for their developmental stage.”
The researchers found that it took about two months for a baby to reach the same emotional state as a baby who had gone to sleep.
But if the babies were still crying when they got back to their parents, the study found that they were no more likely at that stage to hear the baby cry.
The researchers say babies are learning that they can learn to readbetween the lines, but are still more likely if they are still crying.
“These findings provide evidence that babies have learned to process emotional states through crying, and that babies do so when they are in a more stable, social environment,” Dr Kynne Paltrow from the Australian Research Council’s (ARC) Department of Human and Animal Research said.
Dr Soskovowski says it’s important for people to understand that babies are still learning to learn.
“We need to know if there’s any risk of the babies being able to hear when they’re sleeping, because this is really the first study that has looked at that,” she said.
“So I think there’s still some work to be done, but I think this is a very promising area.”
