For everyone else, a teary episode results in running through an arsenal of tactics proven to get baby back to smiles.

I must be a terrible mom, because I never really could figure out why my daughter cried when she was a baby. I would just run through the check-list: hungry, dirty, tired... Now that she's a little older (14 months) I can decipher the cries, but she's more expressive as well.

I almost always knew, and still do, though the types change as they grow older and adjust their attitudes to responses. But my daughter was colicky.. it was either learn the cries or wonder what she needed during her 24/7 crying. She literally never stopped crying unless she was eating/sleeping, which didn't happen in longer then 1 1/2 hr periods. It was stressful.
