RAISING HAPPY HEALTHY CHILDREN
WHY MOTHERING MATTERS
Fully updated second edition of What Babies and Children Really Need. Presents convincing research to show how a baby's relationship with its mother has a lasting, deep impact. Recent social changes - such as delayed motherhood, limited uptake of breastfeeding and early return to work - are interfering with the key developmental milestones essential for wellbeing in later life. Sally Goddard Blythe says, `We need a society that gives children their parents, and most of all, gives babies their mothers back.'
