Arching back

Babies arch their back during uneasiness or pain. If your baby arches his/her back whilst you are feeding him/her, could be a sign of reflux. Help your baby relax and avoid feeding if your baby spits or cries.

Rubbing eyes

Rubbing eyes indicates fatigue. Baby rubs his/her eyes when he/she is sleepy and wants to take the trip down to sleepy town. Opening his mouth/ sucking her thumb If your baby is opening her mouth constantly, that indicates that she might be hungry. Feed your baby whenever you find her/him make these movements.

Crying

Sometimes babies cry for attention and affection when they are bored or lonely. Always take out some time to speak to your baby and play with him/her. It would keep her entertained and will shoo the loneliness away.

Ear grabbing

When your new born grabs her ear it indicated that your baby still have a strong grasping reflex. Most babies do this to self-regulate. If your baby is a little older then it might be an indication of sore ears

Folding their knees to the chest

If your baby folds his/her knees that it could be a sign of digestive discomfort like gas or constipation. After feeding always help your baby take the burp. If you are breastfeeding your baby then you should eat healthy food and avoid eating food that causes gas. Consult your doctor for the proper medication.

Sudden arm jerk

Baby can jerk her arm when she/he feels a sudden loss of contact or support. Arm jerks are baby reflex which disappear after a few months. Swaddle your baby while you’re putting her to sleep to avoid sudden arm jerks.

jenifar charel take a piece of cotton/muslin cloth, wrap a corner of it in your index finger tip, dip your finger tip into edible mustard oil and clean your baby's tongue with your fingertip. Repeat this once a day. Babies keep popping their tongue out because it gets a layer of milk, they gets uncomfortable with that.
