Health Tip: When Baby's Cries Signal Trouble

Health Tip: When Baby's Cries Signal Trouble

03/06/14

(HealthDay News) -- Babies cry as a way to communicate. And sometimes this indicates a serious problem.

The University of Michigan Health System mentions these warning signs of an infant's need for medical attention:

  • Baby cries non-stop for more than three hours, and the cries are particularly intense or shrill.
  • Baby just can't be comforted.
  • Baby's belly is tense or firm.
  • Baby has never had a crying episode like this.
  • Baby seems sick or in pain, or has a temperature of more than 100.5 degrees.
  • Baby has diarrhea or is vomiting.
