The primary focus of Baby on Board is on ways you can love and care for your baby during the most vital time in a child’s development – the first few months. In this third edition of his successful book, leading Australian baby expert Dr Howard Chilton presents parents with all the information they need to be confident about looking after their new baby. He refers to the latest international medical information so they understand the reasons behind the advice. Not just the HOW but the WHY.
Your Cherished Baby
This book lays out the nuts and bolts of the first two years your child’s life. It is the most critical time in their development. What they learn now about love, relationships and their value in the world will last them a lifetime. According to Dr Howard Chilton, one of Australia’s most respected baby doctors, you cannot give your baby too much love. Drawing on his 35 years as a baby physician, Dr Chilton explains the science that proves what many of us instinctively know: the way we feed, hold play with and settle our babies is what determines the kind of adults they will become.
