It is so funny! My ds who is 5 mths old has cried actual tears since birth. I think this is so funny b/c usually a baby doesn't start releasing tears fo some while. My ped. says its no big deal. I was just wondering if any of your infants cry real tears.

My dd has always had tears as well. when she was a newborn, it was just out of her right eye, then about a week later her second eye started to have tears as well when she cried.

My son started crying real tears around 3 months.... before that, his eyes would go all red and puffy but no tears!

From the time he was born till about 2 months he would just get a little watery eyed, but now he cries real tears when he cries hard.

I've been thinking about asking something about this. My ds is 8 months old and I still to this day have not seen him actually shed a tear. Is that weird/mean that something is wrong??

My son has always cried real tears, and lots of them-I feel so guilty anytime he cries.

My dd is 3 months old.. and she cried one real tear the other night. Thats the one and only time she has ever done it. ~Kristin~

Well, even though my son is no longer a newborn, I think about when he was and how he would have these large croc tears streaming down his face! Hahee

I noticed my son's tears at around 7 weeks old.

My dd has cried real tears from day 1. I had no idea she wasn't supposed to right away! Geeze, you learn a lot from this site. ;)

My dd has always cried real tears, I think I noticed when she was about 2 days old, she has also always smiled(and it was not gas). There is a picture of her at birth smiling. Everyone said her smiles were gas, but you could make her do it, so I don't think they were right.

Erynn21 could have been posted under my name...same with my dd. My MIL laughs at "how fast she can work up a tear". :-) Ditto on the smiles.

Tristan cried rel tears from birth and was born at 37 weeks. The midwives were so impressed they almost forgot to hand him to me to be comforted (I'd just had a c section and could barely move or i'd've dome it myself!) I too feel horrid when he cries and it make me cry myself. Oddly enough he still does the fake baby cry thing, where no tears come out - tears lets us know he's being serious!
