"A refreshing guide for new parents focused not on specific techniques but rather on the big picture elements that matter most. Highly recommend!"
-- Alice Callahan, PhD, author of The Science of Mom
Chapter 1 will give you a sense of what newborns are like and help you prepare your home — and your mind — for your new arrival. Chapters 2 through 4 cover the major topics of sleep, feeding, and care and play during your baby’s first year. Chapter 5 will help you feel more confident and supported on your parenting journey.
Each chapter is divided into two parts. In Part I, I crystallize the scientific knowledge on each topic; all studies are fully referenced, with scientific publications listed at the end of the book. In essence, Part I is about all human babies and what science can tell us about their needs. In Part II of each chapter I offer advice on how you can create the most nurturing environment for your unique baby.
I hope Baby Ecology helps you see more, understand better, and worry less.
