The classic guide to baby and childcare—beloved, trusted, best-selling—completely redesigned and revised for a new generation of parents, from “a luminary in the world of child development” (The Boston Globe).

Penelope Leach has helped millions of parents raise their children for more than forty years with her thoroughly researched, practical, baby-led advice; her wise, empathic, and sensible perspective; and her comforting voice.

This new edition has been completely redesigned for today’s parents. Leach has revised the text to reflect the latest research on child development and learning—as well as societal changes and the realities of our current world.

 

Your Baby & Child is essential—a bible—for every new parent. In easy-to-follow stages from birth through age five (newborn, settled baby, older baby, toddler, young child), Your Baby & Child addresses parents’ every concern over the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of their baby. Areas covered: feeding; physical growth and everyday care; sleeping; excreting and toilet mastery; crying and comforting; muscle power; seeing and understanding; hearing and learning to speak; playing and learning and thinking; learning how to behave.
