Overview

Listen! Your baby is telling you something.

After nine peaceful months in the womb, the world can be an overwhelming place for a newborn. Like a little sponge, your child will soak in every bit of sensory stimulation presented, whether he wants to or not-everything from the soft cotton of your shirt to the bright lights in the grocery store. Overload, when it happens, means a fussy baby-but in this revolutionary book, occupational therapist Megan Faure and nursing specialist Ann Richardson explain how you can help your newborn cope with his new environment.

This extraordinary guide to your baby's developing nervous system and his sensory world explains in down-to-earth language how parents can:
• Tune in to a baby's cries and other signals
• Respond to a baby's needs
• Prevent colicky late-day crying
• Provide the right stimulation-at the right time
• Offer positive sensory experiences early on

Offering age-appropriate advice on sleeping, eating, and early learning, as well as the basic sensory principles, Baby Sense is the perfect tool for every parent who has every wondered why a baby is crying-and how to soothe him.
