I found this book at odds with other books which encourage mothers to give themselves fully to mothering as while it spoke about babies needs to constantly be with their mothers, it was clear that this did not mean other mothers give up doing anything else to achieve this. In fact the opposite was true the babies in this book spent almost 100% of their time in constant human contact while the mother went about her daily routine and contrary to what other books tell us babies learn through being surrounded by people and exposed to daily life rather than being stimulated by play mats and toys. I found the ideas in this book about how we learn to mother fascinating. It is no wonder that we are susceptible to the self-proclaimed baby experts when we are witness to so little mothering going on around us. While I found this book informative I'd be wary of who I encouraged to read it as I think for mothers who were swaying towards a more ridged approach it could be off putting and I would recommend an alternative to them like `BabyCalm'.
