Calm the Crying

Every new parent knows the feelings of stress and failure that come from being unable to soothe a crying baby. As a new mother, Priscilla Dunstan faced this same anguish as she tried to calm her colicky son, Tom. But after days of listening to his cries, Dunstan realized that she could distinguish between the different sounds her infant son was making. He was actually communicating his specific needs to her. Inspired, Dunstan dedicated her career to studying infants' cries and what they mean. Her work resulted in the Dunstan Baby Language, a brilliant classification method that has helped over a million parents in more than thirty-five countries around the world interpret what their babies are trying to say. In Calm the Crying, Dunstan introduces more than ten words that can be heard within a baby's cry that allow you to know your baby's basic needs, including hunger, sleepiness, gas, teething pain, feeling hot or cold, and even feeling alone or overwhelmed. In clear, accessible language, Dunstan explains how to distinguish these sound cues, learn the physical reflexes behind them, and understand what to do when you hear them, with many tried-and-true tips and techniques for feeding, holding, burping, and soothing your baby. Armed with this book of Dunstan's expertise, you'll soon learn to understand what your baby is telling you. You'll be giving your baby the best possible gift- the security of being heard and understood. 'Before babies are able to communicate through sign language, they use their cries to tell you what they want. Priscilla has come up with an easy-to-read book that helps parents navigate the different cries to better understand what their babies want. This is a must-have book for any parent wanting to better understand their babies' needs.' Laura Berg, author of The Baby Signing Bible
