Helping Babies Help Themselves is an essential resource for parents to feel supported in helping their babies achieve their physical potential, whilst developing their strength and confidence from newborn infants to when they pull/stand.
Written by two highly experienced paediatric physiotherapists, Helping Babies Help Themselves explains in straightforward terms how babies express their feelings and demonstrate their physical needs at different developmental stages, through their facial expressions, noises and the way they move.
Parents can use this book to focus on the subtle elements that make each baby's motor skill development unique. Understanding and anticipating each challenge will guide parents to give their infant just the right help when it is needed.
Quick tips, key points and frequently asked questions provide clear and simple advice from ways to wrap and help babies settle, to where to place your hands to guide and assist them to move.
