    With DS1 I couldn't really tell the difference until he was a bit older, maybe around 6 months, apart from the shock/in pain cry which was like a high pitched scream. With DS2 I have been able to hear the difference much more easily almost since day 1, and he's 12 weeks old now. I can hear pain, tired, uncomfortable/gassy. Not all the time but a lot of the time.

    Almost 4 months here and still haven't worked it out. I can tell if it's obviously (eg if he's just bumped his head and he's crying then I assume it's a hurt cry, but I have no idea if it's a hurt cry if he's teething or something). I can tell more by his body language than anything else eg eating hands, rubbing eyes, facial expressions etc

    I have one twin who is so easy to read and he's pretty laid back so only telly cries for a reason.

    My other twin though all sounds the same and cries a lot more (although typing this I think he cries more because I'm still learning what it is he wants and need to go through the process of elimination)

    I'm also the only one that can tell which one is crying! Guess that's what happens when you spend that much time with them

    Nope still can't tell the difference and I'm onto my second.

    Doesn't really matter cos whilst under 18mths I just shove a boob at them and it usually solves the problem.

    When she gets hurt its a recognisable cry, but the rest is all the same to me. Mega loud foghorn screaming. *shudder*

    DS is 11 weeks now and I can tell fairly easily most of the time.
    He's a pretty cruisy baby, cries are only 'give me boobie', 'change my bum', 'nigh nigh, put me to to bed'. Sometimes he'll do a high pitched squeal which is clearly a pain cry.

    With DS1 I definitely could to the point where he would be in a different room with DF and I would come out because I knew he was crying and DF was doing the wrong thing for him.

    DS2 I can distinguish his hurt cry from his "I want a feed cry" and most of the time know when he is tired so he doesn't cry about that. Oh and his whingy "I want more food" when he's in his highchair is unmistakable.

    Nope, never. He always cried exactly the same, whatever he needed.

    I was a little obsessed with Dunstan Baby Language with my first bub and it paid off, lol... I was able to read his cries and 'figured' him out quickly. worked the same for my next two babies

    7 months old here and no idea. The only cry I know is her whinge when she's in her cot with a full tummy, dry nappy and a warm blanket, but that's only because I know there is nothing else wrong with her so she's just whining lol.

    And the "it hurts" cry only becomes apparent when I've fed, changed her nappy, tried to get her to sleep and tried to play with her to distract her. If she's still crying after all of that, I can be pretty sure it's pain.

    I'm such a hopeless baby reader lol.
