Your Cherished Baby

This book has bigger horizons. It’s about ‘SETTLING, SLEEP, SOLIDS, PLAY and TODDLERS. It lays out the nuts and bolts of the first two years of your child’s life. This 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.
