What is DBL?
All newborn babies produce 5 different sounds in their cries. These sounds are all reflex based ie when the baby is hungry, it starts the sucking reflex. When you add sound to that, the result is “neh”. When the baby is tired, it starts the yawning reflex, and the sound which is produced with that is “owh”.
There are different sounds for:
- I’m hungry
- I’m tired
- I have need to burp
- I have lower wind pain
- I’m uncomfortable.
DBL is a way of interpreting a babies cries.
