Are you a new parent, nerves frayed to shreds by the endless exhaustive attempts you make through each and every day to discern exactly why that pint-sized nugget of yours is wailing like a banshee?
Vivian Manning-Schaffel: Well, you can light a candle in thanks to the techno-geek gods because, lo and behold, there's a brand new iPhone app that actually speaks BABY!
According to their website, the Cry Translator is "an easy to use iPhone app that quickly identifies the five distinct cries made by infants: hungry, sleepy, annoyed, stressed, or bored. These five cries are universal to all babies regardless of culture or language."
This miraculous device claims to:
- Ease the anxiety associated with calming a crying infant.
- Identify a cry within ten seconds.
- Build confidence in understanding and comforting your infant.
- Help reduce overall infant crying.
