The ability to terminate crying (quieting) without intervention was studied from 0 to 18 weeks. Two groups were involved: 11 newborns during the first hour after birth and a longitudinal group of 14 infants seen every 3 weeks from 3 to 18 weeks. Most newborns who cried showed quieting with and without hand-mouth contacting. In the longitudinal group quieting with hand-mouth contacting appeared for the first time at 9 weeks (quieting without hand-mouth contacting being present from 3 weeks). Quieting with hand-mouth contacting was frequently accompanied by hand chewing/sucking. Explanations for the disappearance in quieting with hand-mouth contacting and its reappearance at 9 weeks concern changes in movement and posture. Explanations based on notions of intentionality in quieting were not supported by the data.
