My one year daughter is suffering with Down Syndrome. She keeps on crying all day long. We don't know how to make her calm down. Though we try everything from making her laugh, giving her favourite food such as sweets but all the efforts are futile as she just won't stop crying. It becomes really difficult at times as all we hear at home is her cries which make the home environment dull and sombre. Please suggest some methods to understand why does she cry and how to make her happy?
