Bringing a new baby home can be one of the most intimidating experiences of our lives and can fill us with self-doubt. In order to nurture our child, says parenting expert Pinky McKay, we must maintain our own sense of worth. Bonding with our baby and learning to trust our maternal/paternal instincts is vital. In Parenting By Heart, Pinky offers practical and reassuring advice on:
- bonding with your new baby
- 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 assist you to find the right options so that you can delight in this precious time together.
