Meaning of different baby cries

It doesn't take long to pick up on your babies different cries for different things.

I remember a website that had these pre recorded babie cries and were supposed to tell you how to read your baby. But those cries creeped me out... And my baby never did anything like them.

You get it. Also a mamas instinct is huge.


In the early days, I'd nurse, burp, check her diaper, and probably nurse again. Once I got used to her patterns (and that wasn't something I realized I was doing either), I'd have good idea of what her cries meant, but I never felt like I could tell just from hearing a cry out of context what my baby would want. Context is incredibly important.
