Parenting By Heart: Sleeping, Eating and Gentle Care for Your Babies First Year

Author(s): Pinky McKay

family health psychology

In Parenting By Heart , Pinky McKay offers practical and reassuring advice on: bonding with your new baby, feeding, sleeping, routines, play and massage, your new life as a family.

Pinky's techniques are based on the latest scientific research but always come back to her philosophy that every parent and child is unique, and that parents need to follow their hearts rather than a one-size-fits-all model. Her advice will help you get to know your baby and yourself, and to find the right options for you both so that you can delight in this precious time together.
