You can read all the guidebooks, go to all the classes and ask for all of the advice and still find yourself rushing to Google with dozens of questions about baby every day. As a part of its Year in Search recap, the search engine giant has released data on some of the most popular searches from this year—including the ones related to those oh-so-confusing parenting questions.

The top searches for ‘why does my baby…’ in 2023

  1. Why does my baby stick its tongue out?
  2. Why does my baby sounds congested but no mucus?
  3. Why does my baby cry for no reason?
  4. Why does my baby keep getting hiccups?
  5. Why does my baby spit up after every feeding?

  7. Why does my baby cry while eating?

  9. Why does my baby have diarrhea?
  10. Why does my baby spit up hours after eating?

Many parents will get a chuckle out of a few of the questions, which feature the default addition of “so much.” Yes, maybe we expected baby to cry or grunt or spit—but this much? Surely, there must be something someone isn’t telling me! Many of the other searches also point to the growing pains around eating, crying and breathing. The “holy trinity” of anxiety that can occasionally feel all consuming.
