What Is PURPLE Crying?

If there is one thing that all babies do, it’s a cry. While the time of day, how much they cry, and why they cry may vary, all parents can agree that getting through those first few months of high-pitched screams takes a lot of patience, wisdom, and support.

For some parents, it doesn’t take long to settle into a rhythm and begin to notice a change in how often their baby gets fussy. But for many, this crying stage seems to go on forever, and the persistent screams often hit at very specific times of the day.

Experts call this stage the Period of PURPLE Crying, and no, it’s not because your infant turns all sorts of colors when they scream at the top of their lungs.

PURPLE is an acronym used to describe specific characteristics of an infant’s crying.
