Priscilla Dunstan from Australia discovered there are five words that all babies 0–3 months old say—regardless of race or culture. These words are actually sound reflexes a baby makes in the pre-cry. Babies all around the world have the same reflexes, and they therefore make the same sounds. These words are used by the infants to communicate their wants or needs. It is important to understand what your baby is trying to tell you. If parents don't respond to those reflexes, the baby will eventually stop using them. Dunstan describes the 5 sounds or words all babies make in a 2 DVD set.

VERY IMPORTANT VIDEOS ARE ON THIS WEBSITE. Download and look at ‘Soft Tissue Dysfunction’ videos. Breastfed children have the best chance of having a normal face and normal swallow. Bottle-feeding, pacifier use, excessive infant habits and tight lingual frenums cause reverse swallows. A reverse swallow contributes to many of the malocclusions that require orthodontics (braces) as well as put individuals at risk for developing sleep apnea. Long faces are usually due to child having obstructed airways – primarily from enlarged tonsils due to not receiving the mother’s immunological benefits from her breast milk.
