Crying baby alarm clock

Welcome to my nightmare, Chester

We're all biologically programmed to respond to the wailing of an infant, so this seems like a natural extension. The alarm would begin with just some goo-ing and coo-ing. If not turned off, the alarm continues with uncomfortable crying and works its way through righteously indignant screaming.

I'd also like to point out that this may very well be the solution to teenage pregnancy.

The only downside is if, somehow one became inured to the sound, there would be a lot of unhappy babies in the next generation.

       Would this have the same type of off-mechanism as those baseball-shaped ones? Just like a real crying baby?

       A Crying Game alarm clock would be more interesting. I don't like to think how it'd work, though.
