display_description This updated edition of an international classic and best-seller first published in 1977 includes the latest research and thinking on child development and learning, and reflects the realities of today's changing lifestyle and family structures. Q&A boxes and color photos are included on every page, with many new photos of babies and dads for this edition. The guide outlines five stages, from newborn through age five; for each stage, the author gives information on feeding and growth, everyday care, and crying and comforting, and, for older children, playing and learning, talking, toileting, and feelings. Writing in a sympathetic, conversational tone, Leach urges parents to meet their own needs first so they can meet their baby's needs and to do what works best for themselves and their family.
