Parent report on hours of crying

The Fussiness Rating Scale assesses the following dimensions of unexplained infant irritability: hours of unexplained crying per day, intensity of fussiness, and amount of fussiness per day. Parents were asked to estimate the average number of hours per day over the past week that the infant engaged in unexplained crying. The intensity and amount of fussiness were measured on a 7-point scale from no fussiness to constant fussiness.
