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 2022

  1. Why does my baby cry so much?
  2. Why does my baby grunt so much?
  3. Why does my baby spit so much?

Many parents will get a chuckle out of the first three 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 point to the growing pains around eating, crying and breathing. The “holy trinity” of anxiety that can occasionally feel all consuming.
