Understand baby cries with Dunstan Baby Language

"By understanding your child's crying, you are taking the first step towards a life of fruitful exchange and loving relationships between you and your child."

What is the “Dunstan Baby Language”?

The Dunstan Baby Language (DBL) is a totally innovative approach to listening to babies through their tears, developed by Priscilla Dunstan. Musician with an absolute ear, this Australian woman discovered at the birth of her child that her tears were different according to the needs he was trying to express.

After 10 years of research and study, she deduced that each cry is distinct and caused by innate physiological reflexes. So, babies speak an universal language that needs to be understood.
