Do babies with cerebral palsy cry?


Yes, babies with cerebral palsy can cry just like any other babies. Cerebral palsy is a condition that affects muscle tone, movement, and coordination, and it can result from brain damage that occurs before, during, or after birth. However, cerebral palsy does not affect the baby’s ability to feel pain, discomfort, or other sensations, so they are able to cry when they are hungry, tired, in pain, or upset, just like any other baby. In fact, crying can be an important means of communication for babies with cerebral palsy, who may have difficulty communicating in other ways due to their condition.
