Baby Ecology: Using Science and Intuition to Create the Best Feeding, Sleep, and Play Environment for Your Unique Baby (Paperback)
"I felt seen and cared for while reading this book, empowered by scientifically sound, accurate information presented in a clear, kind way. THIS IS IT. THIS IS THE BOOK"
Do you feel overloaded with baby care advice?
Are you finding that many parenting techniques contradict each other, while all claiming to be "best" and "right"?
As a scientist and mother, Anya Dunham knew there couldn't be only one right way, and that raising a baby requires more than techniques. She examined hundreds of studies on infant development, sleep, and feeding through the lens of her research field, ecology, and made a key discovery:
There is a biologically optimal nurturing environment for all babies - and within it, a variety of healthy options to meet different babies' unique needs.
In Baby Ecology, you will find:
- Scientific findings most relevant to everyday baby care
- A shift from techniques (reactively solving problems) to a holistic approach (proactively creating the environment for success)
- Ten biology-based, interconnected building blocks of the environment that nurtures every baby's unfolding abilities
- A guide to creating these building blocks in your home in a way that works best for your unique baby and your circumstances
Unlike other parenting books, Baby Ecology offers both scientific findings and helpful advice. Use it to create a strong foundation for your baby, while bringing less stress and more joy to your parenting journey.
