Product Description

As announced in an exclusive interview on the Oprah Winfrey Show, Australian mother Priscilla Dunstan has the world talking with the discovery of the secret language of babies. This breakthrough in infant care is the result of one mother's intuition that began nearly a decade of investigation and international research. The Dunstan Baby Language DVD teaches parents the 5 cries all newborns use to communicate their everyday needs from day 1. You will know when your baby is hungry, tired, needs burping, has lower wind or is simply uncomfortable. By learning this System parents are able to settle their baby faster, resulting in happier babies who sleep longer and cry less - something every new parent would wish for.

Review

'Nothing is as thrilling as becoming a new mom', says Dr. Maureen O Brien, PhD, child development expert and best selling author of Watch Me Grow: I'm One-Two-Three. 'And nothing is as daunting as having a crying newborn. Mothers everywhere know the feeling of enormous love and responsibility that is the hallmark of becoming a new parent. When I first encountered the work of Dunstan Baby in 2006, the story had already caught the attention of key influencers and the media worldwide, including Oprah Winfrey. I was captivated by the System's potential to empower new parents. To be able to listen and know what an infant needs would revolutionize the experience of parenting... from trial and error (lots of error!) to calm and confident caregiving. It would enable parents to develop a deeper bond of understanding, love and trust with their baby and also with each other. What better way to support new families...' --Dr. Maureen O'Brien, Child Development Expert and Published Author

'Moms say it really works.' - parenting.com --parenting.com

'As parents we want to think that we know what's best for the baby. Based on the System, the baby is telling us some very basic things that he needs...and we just have to respond. It's brought Caleb and I closer and without a doubt it's brought my wife and myself even closer.' Eddie father of Caleb --Eddie, father of Caleb

I think she's on to something, but she could have said it on one DVD and had it cost less. I agree with other reviewers who said that the DVD could have gone more into the experiences of the workshop participants.

As for the value of the information: Neh (hunger) was the best one. Eairh (sound babies (and adults, for that matter) make when they are struggling to poop) and Owh (yawn) are totally intuitive no-brainers. And it's next to impossible to distinguish between Eh (upper gas) and Heh (discomfort). So my main take-away was knowing the difference between hunger and not-hunger.

If you do get this DVD, get it very early. The language only applies to the first three months. And knowing it can keep you a little more sane in those first few days with a new baby when all you're feeling is panic and frustration. After three months, as things settle down, you get to know intuitively what your baby is "saying" anyway.

While a small percentage of the information contained in the DVDs is interesting and useful, I thought it was incredibly tacky the way these DVDs are marketed. First of all, each DVD is only 30 minutes long, and includes 15 minutes of testimonials on each DVD. Within the remaining 15 minutes per DVD, you learn 3 words apiece, followed by basic baby care techniques that aren't particularly well presented. There's absolutely NO reason for the package to come in 2 DVDs, except so they can charge more for it. There's only about 15 minutes of original material here. I would borrow but NOT buy this particular item.

The Dunstan Baby Language is excellent. My wife and I thought we were coping (as this was our second child), but were finding being parents of a newborn again very stressful. We watched the DVD's and straight away started to hear the different cries of our baby. It is now week 8 and James is a settled and relaxed little bub because we know what he needs. The supporting info helps and there are some good settling techniques. Much less stress and we get a lot more sleep.

I bought this DVD for my best friend Kelly who just had her first baby and she has said "thank you" about a million times. Her husband, who was skeptical, has become a big fan too. She said it took listening and watching the DVD just a few times and now she knows exactly what her new baby girl needs with every cry. Why didn't this come out sooner? I'm looking forward to having this DVD for my first baby soon!

Super!
Overpriced for 2 short DVD's. But you know, if you can learn how to read your baby, it's worth it. My baby is only 5 days old, and I did use a technique last night, which did help. I never would've known otherwise!

I'm a new mom of four days and I purchased this DVD for myself 3 weeks ago after hearing a little about it from a friend. Boy am I impressed! The information given is very simple and easy to follow. I was instantly able to recognize Mason's different cries and take appropriate action. Otherwise I would probably be tearing my hair out trying to figure out that he needed to eat yet again after just finishing a meal. Worth every penny and then some.

I bought this as a gift for my sister before her first baby but I have found it also helps me with my babysitting duties. I don't have kids of my own and was worried that my lack of experience might mean that I didn't feel confident enough to play a large part in this baby's life. Thanks to this I don't feel like I am getting it all wrong. I would recommend the system not only to new mothers but to extended family as well.

So I was a bit skeptical, and when i heard people saying there wasn't a lot of content I was even more skeptical. But i thought for $40 it is worth the risk if it can help my wife and I have just one good night sleep. Let me tell you - we've now had so many good days and nights I'd pay $4 million for the knowledge I learned. This is our second baby and lets just say the first one was a very different experience. We now know exactly what our baby needs and can respond fast - no guessing, no drama. And as a Dad i just love being able to help my wife and our life and home is just a happy place. The content is short but every second is gold.
