    When a baby is crying it can mean the baby wants to be fed; or it can mean the diaper needs to be changed; or it can mean that the baby has gas and is hurting; or it can mean that the baby wants attention; or it can mean that the baby is too hot or it's too cold. There are 100's of different reasons why a baby might cry. A baby can't talk, and crying is how they communicate their needs to their parents.

    There are MANY reasons why a baby will cry; hungry, wet/dirty diaper not warm enough.  Once baby reaches 3-5 months of age..........then you must deal with the teething pain.

    Babies cry for different reasons, and one is hunger. Their instinct is to suck, and they will do this whether  put to the breast, or offered a bottle.  Some might reject a bottle (whether it has pumped milk or formula) if the mother offers it, but accept it from another person.

    What kind of crying is he doing?  Sometimes they just want to be held

    Babies cry when they’re hungry, among other reasons.  Not sure what else you’re asking.

    Babies cry for many reasons.

    Hunger is just one of them.

    They can cry because of a wet or pooed diaper.

    They can cry because a noise scared them.

    They can cry because of a gas bubble (they need burped).

    They can cry because of no particular reason at all (it is called "colic" when they cry for no reason).

    Sure, it's very possible but there are many other reasons as well.
