Parents: Period of PURPLE Crying®

For more information visit this website that is especially for parents.

The Period of PURPLE Crying is the phrase used to describe the point in a baby’s life when they cry more than any other time.

There are characteristics of this normal developmental phase that are best described by the letters in the word PURPLE. All babies go through this phase; some cry a lot, some far less, but they all do go through it. The word Period in the program’s title signifies that this increased crying will end.
