I know that I have seen this before but since I'm about to have a little one and some of us are first-time mommies I figured I would share this video. It's the five sounds that babies make and what they mean. Hopefully this will save us some stress once we figure out what our little ones are trying to tell us.

I googled and found this "key". Thought id share for those who want to listen and memorize these sounds.

• Neh (I'm hungry) - An infant uses the sound reflex "Neh" to communicate its hunger. The sound is produced when the sucking reflex is triggered, and the tongue is pushed up on the roof of the mouth.
• Owh (I'm sleepy) - An infant uses the sound reflex "Owh" to communicate that they are tired. The sound is produced much like an audible yawn.
• Heh (I'm experiencing discomfort) - An infant uses the sound reflex "Heh" to communicate stress, discomfort, or perhaps that it needs a fresh diaper. The sound is produced by a response to a skin reflex, such as feeling sweat or itchiness in the bum.
• Eairh (I have lower gas) - An infant uses the sound reflex "Eairh" to communicate they have flatulence or an upset stomach. The sound is produced when trapped air from a belch is unable to release and travels to the stomach where the muscles of the intestines tighten to force the air bubble out. Often, this sound will indicate that a bowel movement is in progress, and the infant will bend its knees, bringing the legs toward the torso. This leg movement assists in the ongoing process.
• Eh (I need to be burped) - An infant uses the sound reflex "Eh" to communicate that it needs to be burped. The sound is produced when a large bubble of trapped air is caught in the chest, and the reflex is trying to release this out of the mouth.

man I hate Oprah, I wish she'd just shut up and let that lady talk lol. I've seen that video going around before but never bothered watching it, finally seeing it makes sense. I'll definitely see if I can figure out what my baby is "saying" very interesting indeed.

Yes, I'm so curious to see if any of the moms think this is accurate. I'm reading Harvey Karp's "The Happiest Baby on the Block," and he wrote about studies that proved people couldn't accurately determine the different meanings of babies' cries. I've heard lots of people say they can, so I'd love to know if it's worth trying to decipher them.

I have never watched the video nor have I seen the key that was posted. I think they are very interesting. I know that with time it is easy to decipher your childs cries.

Ive been listening all day, and have heard a couple of these easily, but I have not heard an "neh" sound at all. I can tell when she is hungry though. Im thinking that my baby girl just cant make an "n" sound.
