My LO is 9months old and has NEVER cried a tear, is this normal? Could the fact he was early have something to do with it??

I have no idea when tears are meant to start. My dd is 7 months old and she has been crying tears for as long as I can remember tbh. Think maybe she started when she was around the 4 month mark. I have no idea what the norm is though

I remember going to my 8 week injections and the MW said 'be prepared for your first tears' and thats when LO first cried tears.....

My 5 week old cries tears when he gets really colicky - has done from the start, but only when he's really worked up

My son was 14wks when his first tears appeared. It does vary from baby to baby. I had read that babies dont have tears straight away but then my friend's baby had tears from birth as have some others here by their replies.
Im sure you have nothing to worry about but ask your gp if youre concerned.

I'm sure there's nothing to worry about but maybe just speak to your HV next time you see her for peace of mind. We had the same experience as AkaLadyK with first real tears when DS had his first lot of injections. xx

New to the game at 35.
Hello all. My husband just surprised me last week by saying if I wanted to have a baby he is willing to do so. He has 2 kids, 14 and 8, from previous relationships so for the 5 years we've been together it was all "don't want another ". We got married April 1st of this year. I have PCOS so I had accepted life without a baby of my own and have been on BC for most of my adult life. But now he has changed his mind and I am ecstatic and terrified! I threw away my last 4 active pills, which obviously messed up my cycle lol. So here we go to see what we can do. I cant decide if it would be scarier to conceive right away or for it to take a long time (if at all). I am on Metformin for diabetes (very well controlled, a1c of 5.4 last time checked) and I've been taking inositol supps for a while now just to see if they could help with other symptoms. Also started taking prenatal vitamins as preparation. Sorry for my long winded intro, I'm just excited. Thanks for reading if you got this far!
