She was on Oprah and you can basically just watch the show to get the same information. Look for it on youtube or watch this one
Way, way overpriced. . .

"While a small percentage of the information contained in the DVDs is interesting and useful, I thought it was incredibly tacky the way these DVDs are marketed. First of all, each DVD is only 30 minutes long, and includes 15 minutes of testimonials on each DVD. Within the remaining 15 minutes per DVD, you learn 3 words apiece, followed by basic baby care techniques that aren't particularly well presented. There's absolutely NO reason for the package to come in 2 DVDs, except so they can charge more for it. There's only about 15 minutes of original material here. I would borrow but NOT buy this particular item."
Good but overpriced

"I think she's on to something, but she could have said it on one DVD and had it cost less. I agree with other reviewers who said that the DVD could have gone more into the experiences of the workshop participants.
As for the value of the information: Neh (hunger) was the best one. Eairh (sound babies (and adults, for that matter) make when they are struggling to poop) and Owh (yawn) are totally intuitive no-brainers. And it's next to impossible to distinguish between Eh (upper gas) and Heh (discomfort). So my main take-away was knowing the difference between hunger and not-hunger.
If you do get this DVD, get it very early. The language only applies to the first three months. And knowing it can keep you a little more sane in those first few days with a new baby when all you're feeling is panic and frustration. After three months, as things settle down, you get to know intuitively what your baby is "saying" anyway."
A Great System

"The Dunstan Baby Language is excellent. My wife and I thought we were coping (as this was our second child), but were finding being parents of a newborn again very stressful. We watched the DVD's and straight away started to hear the different cries of our baby. It is now week 8 and James is a settled and relaxed little bub because we know what he needs. The supporting info helps and there are some good settling techniques. Much less stress and we get a lot more sleep."

"Super! Overpriced for 2 short DVD's. But you know, if you can learn how to read your baby, it's worth it. My baby is only 5 days old, and I did use a technique last night, which did help. I never would've known otherwise!"

"I'm a new mom of four days and I purchased this DVD for myself 3 weeks ago after hearing a little about it from a friend. Boy am I impressed! The information given is very simple and easy to follow. I was instantly able to recognize Mason's different cries and take appropriate action. Otherwise I would probably be tearing my hair out trying to figure out that he needed to eat yet again after just finishing a meal. Worth every penny and then some."
