Understanding Your Newborn's Cries

New to the world of DBL? Let me show you around!

Dunstan Baby Language allows you to learn what your new baby is communicating by understanding the different sounds they make just before they cry. 

There are sounds and movements they make that signal practical needs - think hunger, fatigue, discomfort, etc. that your baby is communicating with you - You just need to learn how to understand them! Pretty cool, right?

Wouldn't it be an incredible feeling to know what your baby wanted when they cried? No more guessing or stressing about what they're trying to communicate. Instead you get to know what they want, and respond accordingly, and that's an empowering thing as a parent!

"I took the HypnoBirthing and DBL Baby Language courses and they were amazing. I had the most wonderful birth and when my baby was born it was easy to know what she needed! I am now pregnant with my second child and looking forward to doing it all again." 

– Marisol R.

I love to facilitate DBL Classes because the transformation that parents go through when they learn how to understand their newborn, and the confidence they gain in their abilities to respond and care for their child is absolutely priceless. 

They go from unsure that they're doing things right, to excited about their abilities as a caregiver. The change is absolutely priceless, and it's something that I want for every parent!

Classes are by registration only! This 2.5 hour class will help you recognize and understand the cues your newborn is communicating with you.

Say goodbye to the trial and error that comes with decoding your baby's cries. Instead you can quickly address your baby's needs.
