The mammoth task of being a new mother seems at times to be insurmountable. However there is help at hand. Parenting guru Pinky McKay is one of Australia's most trusted authorities on the often complicated and confusing early childhood years. Her best-selling books specialise in a gentle parenting style, and balance real-world, no nonsense techniques with humour and wisdom. If you're in need of some helpful advice, Pinky's books make the ideal companion for those 3am feeds!
Bringing a new baby home can be one of the most intimidating experiences of our lives and can fill us with self-doubt. In order to nurture our child, we must maintain our own sense of worth. Bonding with our baby and learning to trust our maternal/paternal instincts is vital. In Parenting By Heart, Pinky offers practical and reassuring advice on bonding with your new baby, feeding, routines, play and massage. Pinky's techniques are based on the latest scientific research but always come back to her philosophy that every parent and child is unique, and that parents need to follow their hearts rather than a one-size-fits-all model. Her advice will help you get to know your baby, and assist you to find the right options so that you can delight in this precious time together.
