I suspect that no longer having so many large, extended families plays a part. A great deal of what I learned about babies and caring for them came from being around a lot of babies and parents.
From when I have memory until I had my own babies, our extended family had a new baby or two just about every year, and as we were together a lot, I picked up a lot just from being around them. Even fairly small kids were encourage to hold the babies and care for them and so on.
I also would guess that you learn that now all crying is the same when you've been around a lot of babies. New parents with no experience probably haven't figured that out yet.
