Our son is approximately 2 months old, and he has problems sleeping at night (he cries like any other baby).
My concern is about letting him cry while he's on my chest or in my arms while I give him kisses and petting.
Looking for info on the Net, I've found many sites about babies where they state that some babies need to cry to free their stress, meaning that letting them cry with love isn't unhealthy at all, and it's even worse trying to prevent them from crying as they're unable to express their emotions.
My point is that while my son cries for 5-10 minutes and then he finally sleeps, it could be just that it's the way my son tries to express "I'm very tired and I don't understand what's going on..."
What's the current recommendation by most pediatricians about this topic?
I want to note that I'm not trying to say I want to leave my baby crying alone. It's not about this.
Actually, it's about baby crying when they're about to sleep and even when you've tried to answer to all baby's needs.
After all, I'm looking for opinions/info about this concrete babies' behavior. He cries because the day ends (and he has received a lot of emotions, information and knowledge, and he simply got stressed...).
