The Fussy Baby book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Fussy Baby Book: Parenting Your High-need Child from Birth to Five (Paperback)
This book was excellent for my daughter who has a very high need baby, possible due to his nature, but more likely due to the very difficult birth he sustained. I found it astonishing that other people and so called baby experts can lump babies into one category and expect them all to behave the same. Advice such as 'leave to cry' etc was so unhelpful and felt completely wrong for a tiny scrap who'd spent the first weeks of life on intensive care with minimal contact with mum, poked and prodded with needles stuck into him at regular intervals, he needed close physical and emotional contact for many months when he came home. And it paid off, at 8 months he is happy, secure and progressing well. He still needs close contact but can now be put down without becoming hysterical. Mums should follow their instincts and not the so called experts who undermine a mothers self belief in what her child needs. Gina Ford should be thrown on a bonfire of all her stupid ignorant books!
