Dunstan Baby Language

When I first became a parent, I absolutely had no clue as to what my son was trying to communicate with his cries. Oh, how I wish I knew then what I know now!

Every newborn is totally capable of expressing their basic needs through different crying sounds. Research has found that this language is shared by all babies throughout the world. We call this the Dunstan Baby Language (DBL).

5 different cries

Simply hearing their baby’s cries leaves parents helpless and paralyzed but when they know how to interpret those cries, it changes everything.

As an Accredited DBL Educator, I will teach you how to understand your baby’s needs by tuning your ears and finding meaning within the sounds they make. With practice, you will discover the joy of listening to and understanding your baby. I will help you to take out the guesswork and establish a truly empathic relationship with your child.


Here are the 5 different sounds your newborn child can make AND what they mean.

NEH means “I’m hungry!” – Time to feed your baby

EAIRH means “I have lower gas!” – Massage your baby to help the gas flow along

OWH means “I’m sleepy!” – Help baby fall asleep

HEH means “I’m not comfy!” – Check if baby is too hot, cold, or has a wet diaper

EH means “I need to burp” – Burp your baby

By joining my upcoming group classes, you will be trained to recognize the different sounds your child makes so that you can act effectively upon your baby’s needs.
