What Color Makes Babies Cry?

Babies cry more in yellow rooms. Yellow is often seen as a warm, neutral color for a baby's room, especially when the gender is unknown. However, yellow can cause strain on the baby's eyes if it is too bright, which can cause irritability. If parents choose to use yellow for a baby's room, it should be used sparingly, as opposed to being the main color.

More about colors for baby rooms:

  • Other gender-neutral colors for baby rooms include beige, taupe, orange, white, and green.

  • Soft colors are recommended for bedrooms as they are more calming than the bolder varieties.

  • Blue is often thought to be a color for a boy's bedroom; however, with the many variations of the color, blue can also work well in girls' rooms.
