A Crying 2-Month-Old BabyBabies cry. You knew that already. But some babies cry more than others and some adults are able to handle the tears better than others. Whether it is colic, an ear infection, or just plain crying-for-the-sake-of-crying, listening to a baby cry for hours on end can be overwhelmingly stressful.

Learning how to manage with a crying baby and educating other people that will also be taking care of your baby are good strategies to prevent shaken baby syndrome.
