Do you ever wonder why baby cry when they wake up from their nap or sleep? My 2 year old son Jake still cries as in big mouth, to the top of his lung kindda cry. Not all the time but most of the time. Sometimes he throws a fit when he wakes up from his nap. He is not hungry because when we give him milk he doesn't want it. Although, there were times that he cries when he woke up because he was hungry and as soon as we give him his milk he calm down. But lately he is not drinking his milk regularly and still cries after nap. When he cries inconsolable we pick him up from the playpen and give him hug and then he would fall back asleep in our shoulder. There are lots of reason why baby cries when they wake up from nap. It could be dirty diaper, hungry, disorientation, too much sleep or he's probably crying because he didn't get enough good sleep. And now that Jake doesn't take a nap everyday, it's Justine this time who cry after waking up from her nap. Does your baby cry when they wake up?
