      Hi Automnleaves,

      Thank you for your question. That depends on what exactly do you mean by understanding babies feelings. For example, I now have a project that is about trying to understand when during development do babies understand emotion words, such as happy, sad, angry… Although this project is not about babies feelings, it can give us some knowledge about when babies understanding of emotions, might start.

      Please feel free to ask more follow-up questions if you have any.

      P.S. Remember that you can meet me and the other researchers at the Living Library event this Friday (29th), and that you can get free tickets for the IAR Live Final!
