The simplest of actions-an extended finger, a backward glance, a shy smile-represent surprisingly complex thoughts. From a tossed pacifier that means, "Let's play!" to a headshake that says, "Let's negotiate!" The Secret Language of Babies explores the innate signals that infants use to convey their needs, desires, feelings, preferences, and moods. Drawing on the latest scientific studies as well as their own experience as parents and educators, child-rearing experts Ed and Sally Kiester use fully illustrated examples of what your baby does, what your baby means, and how these communications reflect your child's development to reveal multifaceted meanings to both new parents and old hands.
Promptly and properly decoding an infant's messages is the key to both a contented baby and confident parents. The Secret Language of Babies takes the mysteries out of infant body language, giving you the insight to gain a better understanding of your child.
