Every baby is a unique individual from the moment of birth, with their own likes and dislikes, strengths and sensitivities. One baby might find bright light disturbing, another may not be troubled by light at all but might find being undressed distressing. Similarly, babies differ in what they find soothing and comforting. Only by being finely tuned to a baby's unique communications can an adult fully understand that baby and provide appropriate care. The Social Baby is based on evidence about the development of communication in infants collected in research institutes around the world. By using picture sequences from video footage, this book provides captivating illustrations of key aspects of infant experience. Together with an accessible text, these illustrations provide a window into the rich and complex social world of babies. The knowledge and understanding gained from The Social Baby will help all those concerned with the care of young infants to relate more sensitively and responsively to the babies who depend on them. It will also enrich their own experience and enhance their enjoyment.

I love The Social Baby. An experienced midwife recommended it to be a beneficial read over many books that are popular at the moment. I didn't want to read a book about routines or pregnancy. I wanted a book that would help me be in tune with MY unique babies needs. I am looking forward even more now to those first interactions with my baby and being able to communicate with her. The moment by moment visuals of real infants communicating along with the captions to explain what is happening is beautiful and informative.
