Babyhood Second Edition Revised and Expanded Author:Penelope Leach Penelope Leach's Babyhood - now revised and brought up to date - is an invaluable supplement to the classic manuals of baby care, among them her own celebrated book Your Baby and Child. Rather than tell you what to do FOR your baby, Penelope Leach in Babyhood tells you WHAT YOUR BABY WILL DO - what it is like to BE that developing baby. She te... more »lls you precisely and comfortingly - so that you can understand and anticipate your child's development and behavior, and your own feelings for the baby, as he or she moves from helpless newborn to roving, chattering two-year-old. Drawing on the full range of the latest worldwide research and on her own extensive professional and personal experience with babies, Dr. Leach makes clear what is happening to the child - physically, mentally, emotionally - at each stage of his or her development.
By showing us, almost month by month, what the baby is really feeling, doing, BEING - by giving us the patterns, the meaning, behind everything that babies do as they grow - this book helps us gain a real recognition of the new child as a new person who has come into our lives.« less
