Your Baby and Child, Paperback


This is Penelope Leach's classic childcare manual - updated for 21st century parents.

In the 21st century we know a child's psychological development and well-being is just as important as any physical need.

Here Penelope Leach brings together key new scientific evidence about the way infants think and react to their parents and the outside world.

Find guidance on sleeping, feeding, playing and washing as well as stage-by-stage advice on your baby's physical, intellectual and emotional development from birth to five.

You'll learn how to respond to your child and achieve a happier, more harmonious family life.

More than a guide to childcare - this insight from Penelope Leach into your child's needs, thoughts and behaviours - will help you to really communicate together.

You'll get support and learn to trust your parenting instincts and gain the confidence to live by your baby and child, not by the book.
