Hey I'm a Father and I know my babies cry, actually both babies as we have twins. The their cries are very different, particualarly hunger. I think a Mother uses intuition to know the diffferences where as I think I did learn them. How? well through trial and error I suppose. If you pick up and feed a crying baby and she stops crying remember that cry! If you pick up crying baby and she stops crying immediatly then it was probably the frustrated or wanted attention cry. The tired cry is in my experience the easiest to identify as it is almost always acopmanied by eye rubbing.

well they all say, mothers now, but i am not sure about it! ofcourse my two daughters cried, and sometimes i didn't know what was going on! in the first place they can be hungry so i tried a bottle first, when they didn't stop crying i tought they had cramps in their bellies! so i put my arm under their belly with a little bit pressure, or just a warm hand! and sometimes they cry and cry, and if you cannot hanle it anymore, just put it to bed and leave the room for a while. try to be relaxed(it is difficult i know) because your baby knows how you are feeling! thank god i have very easy kids!

Nobody can understand baby's cry except their mothers. They speak a language that can not be understood. Mothers can only know what their babies say, want and need.
