For my undergraduate research project I'm trying to train my system with infant child crying frequencies and predict the reason for a new baby crying sound. I'm following this journal and they are using 78 different crying sounds manually collected form 31 babies by pediatricians. I'm try to train the system in five different categories like:

  1. HUNGRY
  2. SLEEP
  3. PAIN
  4. NEED TO BURPS
  5. UNCOMFORTABLE

for now I'm working with very little data collected online. I'm looking for a good dataset more than 4 months. Dataset should have more then 50 data with label(the categories i mentioned above ). If anyone know a good source please help me out with this hurdle. Looking for a public dataset. but even a paid version won't be a problem. thanks in advance.

    Have you considered obtaining the data yourself by asking expecting parents and parents of newborns to help? Since their volunteer effort would be to improve the lives of babies everywhere (including possibly their own second child), you might get some takers. – Barry Carter Jan 24 '16 at 16:04
  • i'm working on almost the same thing. Have you found a reliable database? – Giulio Gabrieli Oct 31 '16 at 8:08

donateacry-corpus repository is an infant cry audio corpus that's being built through the Donate-a-cry campaign.
It doesn't look maintained and the campaign itself appears dead, but the data remains!
