That cry means…

When your baby cries she is communicating in the only way, she knows how. Listen closely. Her cries will be her first attempts to communicate.

Often you will hear mothers say they can tell whether their baby is hungry, wet or tired. Next time your baby cries remember it’s not a cry, but communication, and listen carefully. Talk to her often and eventually those cries will become words.
