Overview

This authoritative guide by childcare expert Claire Gillman helps you make informed choices about your baby's upbringing. She shows how a green approach not only protects you and your baby from potentially harmful chemicals and additives, but also helps you bond more deeply with your baby and understand what your baby needs to be happy and healthy.

Health and Healing looks at common childhood illnesses and offers a natural approach to treating and preventing them, while the final section, Natural Therapies, explores alternative methods such as homeopathy and acupressure, and includes a baby massage sequence to help soothe and relax your child.
