This easy-to-read book takes a straight-talking approach to a common problem faced by all parents – the crying baby, writes Jeannie Gordon. The 10 rules for soothing fretful babies and their parents are explained with a modern and warm sense of humour, and are full of interesting cultural and logical information which make you think and reflect.
This is a must for all parents with a new baby but is also a handy tool for all professionals as the “Did you know?” sections give helpful facts to share with new parents to generalise common concerns around the crying baby.
Jeannie Gordon is a specialist practitioner (parenting).
