As a new parent it can be frustrating trying to figure out what your baby wants. Sometimes they cry because they are hungry. Sometimes the blanket is too hot, or the air conditioning kicked on and is blowing on the child. Other times they are just crying before they drift off to sleep.

There is a new app available called Cappella that uses AI to interpret your baby’s cries and help you know what they need. It is available on Apple and soon to be on android. If true, it could be a big help in those first few months when you are getting to know your infant. 

How the app works: 

You download it on two separate phones. The first phone you put in the baby’s room like a monitor. The other you keep with you. 

The app learns the baby’s routine and the noises they make. The program uses AI to take what it has learned and compares it to information on other infants.

When the baby cries it sends a notification and a suggestion of what the baby needs. It could be anything from the child is hungry, uncomfortable, in pain, or about to go back to sleep.

Of course, these are just suggestions, and they recommend you use your own best judgement.

Would you be willing to try it?

I would like to someone with a new baby to use it and let me know if it works. The app also can connect you with a community of parents that can offer support and information.  

I think it is a cool concept, especially if it gets to a point where me and the child can have a conversation. “So, what do you remember of heaven?”
