In this unique book based on sensory principles, baby-care consultants Ann Richardson (a specialist nurse) and Megan Faure (an occupational therapist) pool their wealth of hands-on experience and professional knowledge to help you tune in to your baby and understand what he means by the signals he gives, and how to respond to these signals by regulating his sensory environment and stimulation.

The book explains all the facets of your baby’s sensory world to help you ease his transition from the womb to the world. It is also filled with simple, sensible and practical guidelines and advice on feeding and sleeping issues, establishing flexible and age-appropriate routines, and detailed suggestions for appropriate stimulation to enhance development.
