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. Furthermore, when things get really frustrating, it will take away the blame from you or your baby, because it is not your fault, and even less theirs, that we live in an environment that is not suitable for raising babies and does not meet babies' innate expectations of life outside the womb. However, we can at least be more respectful and understanding about infants' difficulties adapting to these inconvenient even sometimes hostile living conditions, and also try not to be too hard on ourselves while we try to do, very often alone or with the help of a partner only, what in a normal human society, is done by a whole tribe.
I am a person who has never believed that babies cries or toddler tantrums are to be considered normal, I have never accepted the usual explanations like colic or teething, not mentioning the view of the child as a tyrant who is just too spoiled and is on a quest to enslave you for life should you respond to their cry for help or attention. This book finally gave my a plausible explanation of all the difficulties and drama that many parents and children go through in our society. It also gave me some solutions and ideas on how to overcome some of the obstacles - it gave me the confidence to believe in my baby even more and to grant her the biggest gift ever- the freedom and trust from the people who mean the world to her at the moment - her parents, and to stop treating her like our helpless, fragile, dependent creation but like a complete and potent individual who just needs to be shown (not taught) how things work in our world. And the result and change in her behavior followed very soon and I couldn't be more grateful for this book. Thank you, Jean Liedloff!
