Alright ENOUGH ALREADY!! When are these people going to stop with the "App" nonsense?. Do they really expect any parent to believe this or better yet is there any parent out there who WOULD actually believe that this "App" can replace a mother's instinct ? I seriously think these "Apps" are going wayyyy too far. However, to anyone who may be interested, the app goes for $29.99 but you can get it here for the bargain price of $9.99, offer expires this coming Wednesday, 11/11/09.

A new application launched in the U.S.Wednesday claims to be able to translate an infant's cry so moms and dads can figure out what's up.

The app, named the Cry Translator, is the result of six years of research by a team in Spain and claims to tell parents if their baby is hungry, bored, stressed, sleepy or annoyed within 10 seconds.

oh yeah wayyyyyyyyy to many apps

Ok so here is what you have to wonder - it was invented by a team of Spanish researchers right? Well people have different accents and speak different languages so what about babies? Does a baby in Spain cry the same as a baby in America? On that note even different areas, like a baby from the North vs a southern baby.

just to make missb and geekgirl laugh
I'm pretty sure as a baby I cried "Wayyyyyyyyyyyyl are you going to give me that darn bottle" - now I ask you is the app going to translate my Wayyyyyyyyyyyyl???? I think not!

I say app FAIL!

ooh! i remember when kiddo was a baby, lady called "The Baby Whisperer" by many--Patricia Dunstan--- appeared on Oprah. She theorized that if you listened closely enough, each cry is distinctly different for a diff thing (hunger, tired, etc). You know what? She was RIGHT! i know it sounds crazy but it's true! "next time you have a baby" Wink look at Dunstan's stuff and then listen closely to the baby's cry. You will know what they are crying for without going through the cycle of checking diaper, burping for ten minutes with no avail, etc.

Re: What Is Your Baby Trying To Tell You? There's An App ...
omg rotflmao!!! just was trying to google the oprah episode and stumbled across this article (someone skeptical of this lady's "talent".... click the link to read in full)

by Stefania Pomponi Butler (CityMama)

Dunstan says there are five "words" that all babies 0–3-months-old "say," regardless of race and culture:

  • Neh="I'm hungry"
  • Owh="I'm sleepy"
  • Heh="I'm experiencing discomfort"
  • Eair="I have lower gas"
  • Eh="I need to burp"

I call bullish.

I agree that after a while most parents learn what their baby's cry means, but a secret language language of babies? My babies' secret language went something like this:

  • Wah="Boobie"
  • Waaah="I said I want boobie."
  • WAAAH="Gimme some boobie before I shoot crap up all the way up my back to my neck."
  • WAAAAAAH="See? I told you I wasn't kidding. You should've given me the boobie."
  • WAAAAAAAHsmurfle="What took you so long? You'll see. Tomorrow I won't nurse at all. Let's see if a clogged duct or two will teach you to be more responsive next time."

Gosh, if only I'd had Dunstan's DVD to watch during those first weeks when I was operating on four hours of sleep and teetering on the edge of a psychotic episode. I'm sure I could have squeezed in some lessons in between reading Dr. Sears (who made me feel like a terrible parent for not being able to figure out how to carry a floppy six pound baby in a ginormous, padded, chambray sling), and What To Expect (for making me feel like a bad mother for not shoving muesli and oat cakes down my gullet while pregnant. I chose Filets-o-Fish instead.)

Mastering the secret language of babies? Give me a friggin' break. As if we need one more thing for the annoying, know-it-all in our playgroup to feel superior about.

Laughing :Laughing: LOVE IT!

Laughing I couldn't have planned this story it I tired............

Unborn babies pick up parents' accents

German researchers claim babies begin to pick up the nuances of their parents' accents while still in the womb.

The researchers studied the cries of 60 healthy babies born to families speaking French and German.

The French newborns cried with a rising "accent" while the German babies' cries had a falling inflection.

They say the babies are probably trying to form a bond with their mothers by imitating them. The findings suggest that unborn babies are influenced by the sound of the first language that penetrates the womb.

Seeeeeeeeeeeee proof that this app is a scam! Oh and for the record my kids all say "wayyyyyyyyyyyyyl" too Big Grin
