Why Cry Baby Analyzer: Take It or Leave It?

Moms can learn to recognize and differentiate between their baby's various cries. Or, they can pay $100 to have the Why Cry Baby Analyzer do it for them.

How does it work exactly?

I have no earthly idea.

According to the Web site, the monitor uses "advanced frequency analysis technology" to determine whether your baby is crying because she/he is:

  • Stressed
  • Sleepy
  • Annoyed
  • Bored
  • Hungry

Impressive? Maybe.

This review of the Why Cry Baby Analyzer from CrunchGear.com made me laugh:

"...One thing’s for sure, though, only the “hungry” setting really necessitates any serious action. If I were a parent, I’d be a bit put off by a “bored” reading. Oh, you’re bored? You sit around and consume resources all day without recontributing to the family’s economic bottom line. Shall I turn on the Teletubbies for you? High definition or standard? Oh my, you’re annoyed? I’ll try to be more quiet when getting ready in the morning. You’ve got a long day of crapping your pants and sleeping, after all. My apologies!"

What do you think? Would you invest in this baby monitor or would you prefer to "analyze" your baby's cries on your own?
