The Fussy Baby
How to Bring Out the Best in your High-need ChildBook - 2002
Parents of fussy babies hear these kinds of remarks all the time. Faced with a baby who demands to be held, nursed, and comforted much of the time, new mothers may begin to doubt their own intuition, even as they long for a few hours of uninterrupted sleep. The first edition of The Fussy Baby, published in 1985, helped parents think about their demanding babies in a new light. These are children with high needs, children who are smart enough to ask for the high-quality caregiving that will help them develop their full potential. In this revised edition, attachment parenting experts William and Martha Sears bring new insight to the tried-and-true advice that has worked for so many families over the last two decades. Look for new information on colic (the "hurting baby"), gastroesophageal reflux, and the challenges of breastfeeding a fussy baby, along with updated references, reorganized chapters, and lots and lots of mothering tips. The Fussy Baby has carried many a family through trying times with a high-need infant. This new edition brings that tradition of sensitive, intuitive parenting to a new generation of caring mothers and fathers. Book jacket.
