Please watch until the end. Starting 3:15 :)
I’m so lucky today for being bored that leads me to turn on the tv and tune to the Hallmark channel. It was like Allah answers my wonders and showing me the answer to my worry of becoming a mum - baby's cry.
It’s not that I worry about the baby cries. That’s the only way the baby communicates to us - through the cries or at least that was what I thought. What concerns me more is how I will get to understand my baby needs when mums and their babies usually don’t speak the same language.
I discover a major solution to this through Oprah’s show today – and yes, I’m a fan of Oprah. Good for me :)
The whole amazing, wonderful, superb discovery is found by Priscilla Dunstan, an Australian who is gifted with photographic memory since she was a child. She can memorize all facts from the learning in school without having to take down notes and she could hear a Mozart concert on the piano played by her mother only once and play it back note for note with her violin. After being a mum herself, she benefits her gifted ability for sound and pick out certain patterns in her baby-Tom cries and then remember what those patterns were later on when the baby cried again.
She has tested over a million babies from around the globe and come to a conclusion that - there are five words that all babies 0–3 months old say—regardless of race and culture.
The five words or sound made by babies are :
1. Neh - means “I’m hungry”
2. Eh - means the baby needs to burp
3. Heh - means the baby is in discomfort
4. Eair - means the baby need to lower wind/gas
5. Owh - simply means “I’m sleepy”
She said that these are not the babies’ cries but more to pre-cries sounds which is logically the babies are actually ask nicely at the first place for whatever they needs and when our action doesn’t meet their needs, they will really cry. So, that means mums will have to always listen to their babies BEFORE the baby cries.Owh.. i wish i could share more..
