The Secret Language of Babies - Amazing Medical Breakthroughs

Posted on July 21, 2007 in Uncategorized

After testing her baby language theory on more than 1,000 infants around the world, Priscilla says there are five words that all babies 0–3 months old say—regardless of race and culture:
Neh="Im hungry"
Owh="Im sleepy"
Heh="Im experiencing discomfort"
Eair="I have lower gas"
Eh="I need to burp"

Those "words" are actually sound reflexes, Priscilla says. "Babies all around the world have the same reflexes, and they therefore make the same sounds," she says. If parents dont respond to those reflexes, Priscilla says the baby will eventually stop using them.

Priscilla recommends that parents listen for those words in a babys pre-cry before they start crying hysterically. She says there is no one sound thats harder to hear than others because it varies by individual. She also says some babies use some words more than others.
