Your newborn baby isn’t just crying - she is communicating with you. With the Baby Ears app you will learn to hear the 5 unique sounds every newborn makes before they cry, and know exactly how to respond to quickly and easily calm your infant:
• Neh - hungry
• Eh - burp me
• Owh - sleepy
• Eairh - tummy pain
• Heh - discomfort
These sounds are the sounds newborns make up to 3 months and sometimes up to 6 months old. The most beneficial time for parents to acquaint themselves with the sounds are while expecting the baby to when the baby is about 3-4 months old.

First introduced to a global audience on the Oprah Winfrey Show, DBL (Dunstan Baby Language) has already helped over a million new mothers and fathers tune-in and become baby listeners.

** No sound on your iPad or iPhone?

5 most common causes of No Sound from your Apps - (and how to fix it):

1. Volume (software) is locked - double tap the Home button, the Apps in use will appear, scroll to the left, turn off the volume lock.
2. Volume (hardware) button is off. Turn it on.
3. Another App has crashed the system sound engine. Need to refresh the sound engine. Go to Settings > General > Sounds. Minimise the volume bar & maximise it again.
4. Restart the device by holding down the home button and the power button for 10 seconds.
5. App may be corrupted. Delete and reload from iTunes (you will not be charged again)

Pretty good sounds

Pros: great research, and for a new parent, which I am not, I bet it will be a lifesaver.

Cons: the "practice" section of the app, after you learn the 5 sounds, won't grade higher than a 9/10. Irritating-- even on baby cries where I am dead certain, I get 9/10.

For those who are complaining that the app's sounds don't worn, I hear you, but try turning your ringer off of silent. Then it works beautifully. This was annoying to have to figure out; it should be written so sounds are in regardless of whether your ringer is on or not.

Slow, clunky

First of all, I already paid for the app. There is no reason you need my name or email address.

The app is also very slow and clunky to use. You have to needlessly wait for animations to move between screens. Honestly, it is barely usable.

Great help for new parents

This app is a must have for new parents (not to mention grandparents and siblings). This simple to use app actually teaches you what to listen for in your baby's cries and how to settle them creating a calmer baby and a calmer household too.

Haven't had any SOUND issues (perhaps uses had their volumes switched to mute on their iPhone or iPads) and the easy to learn videos and test really do help you tune your ears to your baby's needs. You'll soon hear these cries with other's babies too.

If you are a new Mom or Dad (or a second or third time one) this app is a must have.
