    i think it took me about 6 weeks to completely get used to the different cries...

    but even now, there are times when he'll cry but i can't figure out what it is!!! :wall:

    i think sometimes babys cry just coz they can..sometimes coz they want a cuddle.. sometimes coz they dont.. etc etc..i think you never really know entirly what they want untill they can communicate a little better when they are more developed..

    i knew about 2 weeks after her coming home from the hospital but she was already 2 months corrected age by then.

    i will say follow your initial gut feeling though, your first guess will probably be the right one, you know better than you think. thats what ive realised. im still gaining confidence.

    Isaac 'properly' crys when he's hungry or wants to be with me, and I know those, and have since week2 really, as he cried a LOT :D
    Then there's obvious ones, like if he hits himself with a toy, or is frustrated he can't reach something, or if he wants his dummy putting back in his mouth :lol:
    Situation helps a lot, you'll know if a feed is due maybe, could be hunger, or bum not being changed for a while, could be Poo, putting them down for the night, could be they don't want to be left.

    redshoes, your isaac is gorgeous! that little picture in your signature reminds me of a close-up one I got of Ryan... excuse his baby rice lol http://i162.photobucket.com/albums/t244 ... 12-073.jpg


    Getting to know the cries... I can't honestly remember but the past month or so at least I've been pretty spot on when he's crying. I think round about when he started teething and had a "pain" cry I could differentiate it from the other cries. If that makes sense, I knew straight away he was in pain, and from that I could judge the others. If he sleeps but keeps waking, he's probably still hungry.. If he's tired he just sort of whinges.. he's not really bothered by poo.. the "too hot" cry is much like the pain cry.. are there any more? lol

    babies can't talk... but they can cry, so everything is associated with crying.. I can't sleep, I'm tired, I'm not tired, I'm lonely, I'm bored; I want to be left alone, I'm hungry, I'm thirsty, I'm grumpy, I'm annoyed, I'm awake, I'm hot, I'm cold, etc...

    ... and I think most babies cry at some point just for the sake of crying... They suddenly realise they are the ones making that god awful noise :rotfl:

    Tia's 8 now... and there are times when she cries and I have no idea why... and it takes me ages and ages to get to the bottom of the reason... and she can talk. :roll:

    There are times when we just cry because we can and there is no reason. Children are little people really... so don't ever look on it as a failing that you don't understand your LO... I don't think we are supposed to tbh...
