This book resonates with my belief that our experiences in childhood are paramount and leave deep impact on everything in our adult's life even though we don't realise it most times since we don't have conscious memories from the time when we were very small babies In a very simple and logical and yet holistic and knowledgeable way, Jean Liedloff develops this argument by drawing comparisons between our western culture and the Yequana people - an example of human species living in their natural habitat, uninfluenced by "modern" trends. She compares the people we produce in our society with the joyful members of the harmonious society of the Yequana and it all boils down to how babies and children are treated from birth here, in the "developed" world, and there, in the "primitive" jungle.
Like a typical mum-to-be of our age I had almost no practical knowledge on how to take care of a baby so I had to either go with the flow and listen to what the doctor says, what my family says, what more experienced friends say or try and learn for myself as much as I can by reading books and articles on the subject. I chose that latter and I kept reading and reading during pregnancy, than after my daughter was born. However, many authors and theories would contradict each other and very often the more I read, the more confusing things would become. Then, I found this book and it was the missing piece of the puzzle, the theory of everything. This book will not give you a practical advice on how to make your baby sleep through the night but will make you feel better when they don't.

I bought this for my son and daughter in law. Their son is one and a half. I read this book when my kids were young and used it as a guideline when bringing up my youngest (now 29). The ideas may sound a bit strange but they are based on Leidloffs experience as an anthropologist living amongst an Indian tribe and her observations of how they looked after their babies. We are more in tune these days anyway with the idea that we should respond to a baby's needs and I think many mothers carry their babies around with them when they are getting on with everyday stuff. But the basic idea is that if you give your babies and young children what they need, they won't become 'needy' as they grow up. In other words you can't 'spoil' them by giving them the love and attention they need. Leidloff is just saying what you know and feel is right really. I know it can't be held up as proof, but my son is the least needy person you could find. I know I'm probably biased, but ask anyone and they will agree!

The roots and forgotten basics of elements of a healthy upbringing of children, and the sources for a harmonious, natural life in general. Very recommended.

This book is on a course reading list so I was required to read it. Any respect I had for some of the authors ideas and research was lost with her offensive attitudes and opinions about homosexuality.
