The crying of the baby is what can cause the most despair for parents by not knowing what is wrong with their child or what they want. However, it should be clarified that crying is the only way for the baby to communicate, in addition to the sounds it emits.

It is curious that, according to the different studies that have been carried out on the crying of babies, it has been established that all babies make the same sounds to transmit the same needs. They have their own language that has been interpreted and translated.

After ten years of research with more than 1,000 babies in the world, it has been discovered and shown that babies share the same language.

It all started with a mother's curiosity to know if babies had a crying code. This question led him to carry out an exhaustive investigation with which he came to the identification of 5 specific sounds:

1. Neh - I'm hungry
2. Owh - I'm sleepy
3. Hey - I need to burp
4. Eairh - Give me a belly massage because I have gas
5. Heh - I'm uncomfortable, maybe I'm hot or my diaper is dirty

1. The 'neh' sound - I'm hungry.
It is a sound that is produced by imitating the reflex act of sucking the breast. See when it's feeding time, if your baby makes this sound. The sound is made with the tip of the tongue on the palate. See if your baby makes this movement with his tongue to better identify the sound. You will recognize the sound by the 'n' of crying. Other signs or gestures that will tell you that he is hungry is that he eats his fist, makes noises with his mouth or turns his head from one side to the other.

2. The 'owh' sound - I'm sleepy
The sound "owh" is given by the yawn reflex. You will notice that your baby's mouth is oval in shape. Gestures that will tell you that he is sleepy are rubbing his eyes or making sudden movements. If your back arches and twists, you can be sure that it is sleep.

3. The 'eh' sound - I need to burp
The 'eh' sound is produced because you contract your chest in an attempt to get the air out. This sound will often be repeated in a series of several 'eh' in a row. If your baby stops eating and complains, he needs to burp. If you notice that his chest tightens or that he does not like lying down, try to help him pass gas.

4. The 'eairh' sound - I have gas in my belly
The 'eairh' sound is produced in the lower abdomen; try to do it. If you notice that your baby is tense or stiff, pulling his legs toward his belly, wrinkling his face, or crying uncontrollably, try laying him on his tummy and massaging his back.

5. The 'heh' sound - I'm uncomfortable
The sound is produced by the discomfort of the skin and that can mean that you are hot, cold, or your diaper is uncomfortable; Although it may also be that the belt bothers you or that your clothes itch. You will recognize the sound by the exhalation of the 'h', as a gasp. Go through everything to see what is bothering you.

At first, it is not easy to differentiate these sounds, but if you write down the cries and how the baby calmed down each time, you will soon be an expert interpreting your baby's cries. You can also buy DVDs or applications for your smartphone that will help you identify your baby's sounds.
