    If you take this as their means of communication with you. You will be less frustrated. in experience two things work perfectly :

    One set their routine, it helps you and them in all stages

    Second, when u respond use your words. It helps you to express your feelings and for the child to feel better.

    It really depends on the baby.

    One of our daughters cried a lot as an infant, and one not much at all.

    Depending on the baby - all stages.  Some cry a lot and some don't.  Every baby is different.

    I would say the baby cries only if their needs are unmet. So it has nothing to do with the stage they are in. If you give them what they need, happy parent happy child.

    Every newborn baby, infant, toddler, young child is different.

    Our first, a girl, was a horror for crying etc at all of those stages.  Our second, a boy, was peace itself in comparison.  Both now have university degrees and interesting jobs. And the third one, too, but I cannot remember so much about her early times.

    Depends on the baby.  Five kids, they all had different stages where they cried more.

    Statistically, babies cry the most between 2-4 months of age. Older babies have more lung power and their cries are definitely louder and more distracting, but IMO, toddler crying is subjectively the worst. Not only are they LOUD, but their reasons for crying are often frustratingly irrational, unlike babies who generally cry when they actually need something (colicky babies notwithstanding).
