Now, I could usually tell what my babies need by their bodily movements, facial expressions and by the intensityy, sharpness, or lower tones of their cries. However, even though I had nine kids and I consider myself to be a baby whisperer, I just learned from my daughters there are four different cries a new-born makes. A cry starting with
- Neh means I’m hungry.
- Owh says I’m sleepy
- Heh expresses I’m experiencing discomfort
- Eairh or in other words, I have lower gas
- Eh in English translates as- I need to be burped
All I can say is wow, little people are intelligent.
Society must teach all mothers how to become Baby Whisperers. Sometimes I think that horse whisperers learn more skills than new mothers. Don’t you think that Maternity Wards should at least hand out pamphlets with some of these survival tips on them?
