A young father is concerned about his infant, who often cries with short, high-pitched cries that sound unlike any other infant's cries he has heard. Based on the chapter, what advice would you give this father?

▸ The father should only be worried if he is not from an underrepresented group, because children from underrepresented groups often show different crying behaviors than the majority group.

▸ Short, high-pitched cries mean that the infant is not getting enough nutrition. The father needs to do a better job of responding to his infant's needs.

▸ The father has nothing to worry about, since infants differ widely in their crying behaviors. The infant just has an unusual-sounding cry.

▸ Short, high-pitched cries can be a sign of disability or injury; in this case, the father should check in with his infant's doctor.
