Not sure if this belongs here in this section or at this site for that matter, but here goes - I have a 16m old daughter who is breastfeeding. And when she cries I respond. How does another´s baby cry affect you? Im talking about very hurting cry for her/his mama. I get really anxious and have a tight chest when I hear babies cry. I was so unlucky to witness a 10m old baby being weaned where her mother nor father was around She was put with her grandparents over night so she could be weaned off the breast and she obviously did not like it (or was ready for this). But her cry was so intense and heartbreaking to hear. Its not just when this happened. I get tears in my eyes every time I hear a baby cry and Im wondering if my hormones are just sky high? Cause everyone else seemed to not be annoyed with it or feeling it to be awful, even the grandmother. Im not trying to talk behind those parents backs about their weaning decisions, just wanted to know if anyone else would feel the same in similar situation?
