Crying is the powerful form and only means of communication for babies. Babies cry for the same reason as adult talk — to communicate. Nannies and parents spend much of their time trying to figure out how to calm crying babies.
That’s why I love the book Calm the Crying: The Secret Baby Language That Reveals the Hidden Meaning Behind an Infant’s Cry and video called Dunstan Baby Language in which Pricilla Dunstan explains how she discovered that every newborn communicates from birth to three months using five distinct sounds that signal hunger, tiredness, need to burp, lower gas, and discomfort. This is regardless of the language their parents speak. It is not a learned language. Rather, it is a natural way for every baby to express their physical needs based on baby’s physical responses, called reflexes.
But there is also a cute gadget that can do all the work for adults. The WhyCry Mini Baby Cry Analyzer helps caregivers correctly understand and respond to a baby’s feelings and emotions, promoting a baby’s sense of well-being and security.
This second generation of WhyCry products says it has 95% accuracy rate with a response time of just seven to eight seconds. The WhyCry Mini Baby Cry Analyzer is cute and has a light, small, portable, and compact design.
The WhyCry Plus not only has a baby crying analyzer but a hygrometer, thermometer, and clock. It also has a baby care time with alarm that helps you track when the baby ate, had their diaper changed and fell asleep.
What do you think? Have you ever used a baby cry analyzer? Are they helpful or hype?
