11-week-old crying

My lovely 11-week-old seems a fairly normal, happy baby, but cries at a lot of things and I was just wondering really at what age this changes (if your baby was like this)? She will often cry when movement of any kind stops, e.g. cries at the traffic lights in the car, cries when I stop walking in a sling or her pram (unless asleep), as well as when I get her out of the bath/she's tired, bored etc. I had vague hopes of being able to get over to my allotment at some point with her in the pram and that she might snooze in there for a while, or sit and watch the world go by... seems terribly naive now but surely it'll be possible one day...?! Any tips for helping her to cope with the things that upset her, apart from keeping on comforting her?

my girls were the same when they were babies, there's not much you can do really but they do grow out of it, sorry i couldn't be more help smile x

i honestly dont mean this to sound horrid in any way, but your baby is only 11 weeks old!

she has barely had time to get a grip on the world around her. and babies cry all the time, try to remember its her only form on communication and although she is crying she may not be upset, she may just be trying to tell you something eg she is bored of the toy she is playing with or the wall she is looking at.

once she is a few months older you will get to know her better and learn when she is upset crying and when she is not.

I'm afraid at 11 weeks my ds was like this too. I also had had ideas of allotmenting with ds in the pram, it never happened. I recon when your dd is able to roll or sit up on her own (around 5 or 6 months) you'll be able to set get up on a blanket with some toys while you get down to some digging, and she'll be happy enough.
Sorry thats a long way off and probably not what you wanted to hear.
Good luck

thanks - and no offence taken, welshcat, I know she's only little... Just impatient to get to my 3-foot-high thistles I guess...!!
