    NEVER.  Because, until a toddler begins talking - they have NO way to let you know why they are crying and what hurts.

    No.

    One of our daughters cried a lot the first eight months of her life. It was a combination of things, but not always easy to find which thing it was each time.

    She turned into a very cheerful child and adult, so it all worked out.  ; )

    Depends on the baby.  Of five kids, four were really easy to stop crying just by nursing them.  One, not so much.

    Always? No. It really depends on why the baby is crying and if you know what to do about it. 

    TV characters always seem to be walking around flustered, jiggling a screaming baby up and down, and wondering why it won't stop crying. In my experience, babies hate being jiggled like that when they are already upset and over-stimulated.

    Yes.  Most of the time, the child needs to be taken outside, or into a more open environment.

    Definitely not, particularly if the baby is sick or has colic. "Easy" babies often don't cry much, just when they're hungry or need something else and are soothed as soon as whatever need they have is met, but a colicky baby can scream for hours round the clock with little the parents can do except try to comfort the baby while keeping their own sanity.

    You need to figure out why they are crying:

    Hungry, needs a diaper change, needs a nap, needs to be held, sick.  Sick is the only one that is not easy to correct.
