Five Universal Baby Language

5 Universal Baby Language

While babies bring tremendous joy to mom and dad, having them especially to first time parents could mean sleepless nights too. For most parents, babies’ cry is just simply a cry.  To us, this cry could mean just about anything and it is up to us to guess what they are crying about.

My husband and I were no different from the rest of parents out there. We were exhausted, and just did not know what our then new born daughter needed.  And since we did not know anything about baby language, we were just guessing what could be wrong with her. Sometimes we got it right, but oftentimes the crying went  on, and on and on. Thus the long hours of incessant crying.

However just before I had my second child, I came across a video about baby language.  Here, it was explained that a baby’s cry is actually a form of language to communicate with their parents. I studied these sounds, applied it to my then new born son, and it definitely worked.

Being able to understand their cry is amazing! I thought it would have been a treat if I had known of this when my daughter came. I could have spared her, my husband, and myself from sleepless nights.

So for first time parents, and moms and dads to be, study these five baby language.

  1. “Neh” means hungry
  2. “Owh” means sleepy
  3. “Heh” means discomfort. This could translate to, I just peed. I pooped. I don’t like my position. I’m hot. I’m cold.
  4. “Eair” means lower gas.
  5. “Eh” means burp

Parenting Challenges: Favoritism

Favoritism is everywhere, in the work place, among colleagues and friends.

It is a reality.

Favoritism exists even in our family. When asked parents would automatically say that they treat their kids with fairness, which is ideal. But being ideal does not necessarily mean it is being followed by everyone. Whether parents are in denial or are totally oblivious, it is a family issue that may seem insignificant but in actuality has great emotional impact on the child. While the child is young the effect may not be obvious but as the child grows the effects emanate loudly through the child’s actuation and behavior.

It is something worth discussing about and worth sharing our insights and experiences with. Before relationships in the family become sore and irreparable let us give each other a helping hand and find ways and means to lessen if not completely eradicate favoritism in our family. The discussions might just be a heaven sent answer for inexperienced parents, and consequently saving a child from emotional turmoil.


What will I do when ……

…… I feel annoyance to one of my kids (for whatever reason) and a favorable inclination towards the other?

Please feel free to share your thoughts on this.
