The Cry Translator iPhone app, which costs $29.99, claims to help parents understand "the meaning of a baby's cry in less than 10 seconds." It's said to decode the five distinctive cries — hungry, sleepy, annoyed, stressed or bored. You know, cause parents haven't been doing that for centuries. Similarly, the Baby Translator app ($1) records a baby's noises and then "interprets" them to tell you just what your lil one is trying to communicate.
Clearly there are hundreds of iPhone apps that make a mama's life easier, but these translators border on entertainment. Does the idea of decoding baby's weeping with your phone make you go ga ga or gag?
