Dunstan Baby Language The Dunstan Baby Language teaches you to hear exactly what your baby is communicating. As a Nanny, you will be able to interpret the infant’s sounds and cries – and respond to their needs quickly and effectively. Every newborn communicates from birth to 3 months using 5 distinct sounds that signal hunger, tiredness, need to burp, lower wind/gas and discomfort. This is regardless of the language their parents speak. It is not a learned language. Rather, it is a natural way for every baby to express their physical needs. The Dunstan System will teach you how to tune your ear to the 5 ‘words’, take you through settling solutions, and gives helpful advice for parents and Nannies. It was eight years of research that revealed this system of sounds – the language that is shared by all babies. (You can also complete further training to become a Dustan Baby Language Educator).
