A device that can understand a baby’s cry? Sounds like science fiction. But UK-based Wellis claims it can do just that, and is now offering the third iteration of its Why Cry Baby Crying Analyzer — which it says is ten percent more accurate than the first.
The device recognizes different types of baby noises and cries — which in turn teaches parents what each sound means.
“During the first year of a baby’s life, it is very difficult for new parents to understand why their baby is crying,” the company says. “Once they learn if the baby is hungry, in pain, bored, or even, just overtired, they will be much more comfortable and confident and able to attend to the baby’s specific needs right away.”
