Overview

T. Berry Brazelton, America's most highly regarded and deeply valued pediatrician, is a national treasure. Millions of parents and physicians have used and praised his groundbreaking books on infancy, parenthood, and early childhood. What Every Baby Knows is without question Brazelton's most exciting and valuable book.

In What Every Baby Knows, Dr. Brazelton takes five families and really opens the doors of their private lives. In the course of the family histories and in the follow-up visits that Brazelton pays to each family two years later, we come to know these parents and children as individuals — their stubborn worries, their struggles to adapt to change, their successes at resolving problems. These family histories serve as the framework for Brazelton's illuminating discussions of such crucial family issues as:
—sibling rivalry
— divorced parents
— prematurity
— colic
— encouraging independence
— late speech development, and more

What Every Baby Knows offers every reader answers to their questions about the real, day-to-day issues that his or her own family faces. The problems Brazelton identifies in the lives of his five families are the universal problems of family life. And the resolutions he describes are as reassuring as they are workable in all family situations. What Every Baby Knows will help all families share the rewards and happiness of life together.
