Why does your baby cry so much? If you aren't able to figure it out, then try out this new app, the Infant Cries Translator , developed by scientists at the National Taiwan University Hospital, Yunlin. It gives you a clue as to why your baby is fussing so much, according to NBC News.

"The Infant Cries Translator can differentiate four different statuses of sounds of baby crying, including hunger, the diaper getting wet, sleepy and pain," said study author Chang Chuan-yu. "So far, according to the feedback from users, the accuracy of the app we've tested can reach 92 percent for babies under two weeks old. As for the babies under one or two months, the accuracy of the app can also reach up to 84 or 85 percent. Even for the four-month-old baby, the accuracy can reach 77 percent."

Scientists gathered data on "200,000 crying sounds" from more than 100 newborns. They were all uploaded onto an online database that analysed the frequency of each scream.

While at first the app can help you to understand if your baby is hungry, sleepy, wet due to a diaper, or in pain, after six months the app will become less effective as your baby becomes more familiar with his surrounding, according to scienceworldreport.

You can download The Infant Cries Translator on IOS and Android via the App Store and Google Play. It has been available since 2015 at a cost of $2.99 USD.
