Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to learn the Baby Language

We suggest that parents learn the Dunstan Baby Language System during their 3rd trimester of pregnancy or until baby is about 3 months old. If parents learn it too early in their pregnancy, they may not remember it when baby arrives.

How does the language work?

The sounds in the Baby Language are reflex based. So, when your child is hungry, it will automatically trigger the sucking reflex. The tongue goes to the top / roof of the mouth and then down to help apply pressure on the nipple or teat (even if it’s not there yet). When it is vocalised, it makes the first sound in the Dunstan Baby Language. ‘Neh’. This tells the parent that baby is hungry. You feed them and will find they attach/ latch on better because they are actually hungry in that moment. The other reflexes are for tired, wind in upper chest, wind in the lower area and skin and other irritations (wet nappy, too hot, too much light, too noisy and so on).

Does my baby make all the noises in the baby language?

Each baby is an individual, and they may start saying different words at different stages of their development. So for example, a premature baby is often very tired, and has to be woken to be fed regularly (check with your GP); so they may not make the ‘hungry’ sound till they are a bit older. A baby with a tongue tie may not clearly articulate one or more of the sounds depending on the location and severity of the tie.

“I’ve tried leaving my baby to cry-it-out. I feel terrible every time. Isn’t there a more humane way to settle her?”


Every new parent does everything possible to care for their baby. We all do our very best, using the best advice we can get hold off.

But all too often, there is a breaking point for all of us. Sleep deprivation leads to mental and physical exhaustion. Every extra minute your baby cries, after many hours and days and weeks of unexplained crying (called ‘colic’ by doctors) can be the straw that leads to desperate measures. We close the door to our crying baby, and walk away. Often it’s the only thing to do.

Doctors define colic as unexplained, inconsolable crying, where a baby will cry for 3 hours a day, for more than 3 days a week, for 3 weeks or more. Colic is the medical term for ‘We don’t know why your baby is crying, but it will eventually stop.’

As a last resort, we turn to cry-it-out or controlled crying methods.These can get a result, no doubt. But at what cost – to your baby and to your peace of mind? Surely, there must be a better answer than that?

Colic is a word that strikes fear into every new parent. And for good reason. Few things are more distressing, or more exhausting. It’s not just the wailing that is heartbreaking. It’s not knowing why. Is there something more serious going on?

And for millions of new mothers, doing the best they possibly can for their baby, it’s a dilemma. Do we jump into the car at all hours to take the baby the the Hospital or Medical Centre, or do we let baby cry it out till she fall asleep exhausted?

Colic is widespread especially in the first few months. And we believe unnecessarily so. Thankfully, there is a natural, holistic solutionthat doesn’t involve medication or resorting to leaving your baby to ‘cry-it-out’.

Download our 16 page e-book to learn more about our philosophy of responsive infant care.

I’m a great believer in building attachments between parent and child. Physical contact with our own baby can be quite minimal without us even realizing it.

It certainly is by the standards of native cultures in which they carry their babies around all the time, hearing their baby’s every sound, feeling their baby’s every movement.

Learning to respond quickly to your baby’s cries makes them feel safe and secure, and accelerates the bonding process. We call it responsive infant care. Download my e-book to learn more about the benefits it has for both you and your baby.
