    Default Can anyone tell the difference in their baby's cries

    Like can you tell if they are hungry, fussy, teething etc? (The panadol ad about 'i can tell the it hurts cry' prompted this question)


    My dd is 8 months and tbh it sounds all the same to me... Don't have a clue lol

    Sorry about typo in header so rethreaded this lol

    Yes, now I am on to my third I can really hear the difference in cries. I couldn't really when I had my first but got to know the different cries with time.

    Oh my gosh, still no idea after 11 months! I always felt so inept in that regard. I just would put him on the boob regardless... Now I look for his facial expression to see if it's his 'I'm not getting what I want' cry or not...

    Lol, I could tell the difference between the I'm in pain cry, I'm getting hungry cry & the I'm tired cry.
    Pain = screaming
    Hungry = frantic plus arm flapping (like trying to grab me)
    Tired = whinging

    I was only able to tell the difference with my third baby, and even then it took some time.

    But I could never tell any of my babies apart from other crying babies!

    There's been so many times I've heard a baby sounding really distressed, crying and screaming (particularly when I'm doing the pick up at daycare), I've walked into the room, certain that it's my DD...only to find her happily playing, and another child in tears.

    DS1 - all his cries were pretty much the same until he was around 6 months, then I could kind of tell the difference between hungry/ tired/ sick (the cry was the same, just varied in intensity). Didn't really matter that I couldn't tell what he was crying for though - boob was always the answer!!

    DS2 - from around 1 month he developed really distinct and different hungry/ tired/ in pain cries.

    A little OT, but I always wonder how mums know their bubs are teething! I have NFI until I see a tooth, then I go 'ok, so that's why you've been so cranky' lol
