I heard about this through a neighbour who was using it to help her understand what her baby wanted. I have to say I was both sceptical and curious. I do believe that babies communicate their needs in subtle ways – I often ‘knew’ what ToddlerGeek wanted in the early days without knowing how. I remember feeling woozy from the c-section drugs when I held her for the first time, turning to PapaGeek to say I thought she wanted a wee seconds before she did just that all over my pillow!
The Dunstan Baby Language System claims that newborns share a universal language which enables them to communicate their basic needs. You getÂ two instructional DVDs, a 64 page booklet and a wallchart which lead you through the five ‘words’ for hunger, lower wind, need to burp, tiredness and discomfort that babies use from birth.
Anything which helps you to decipher your babies needs has to be a good thing. My friend was certainly very enthusiastic about it. Let me know via the comments form if you have tried it and what you thought.
