It's the only book you'll need in your baby's first year. Packed with practical advice, Baby on Board is a must-read for all mums and dads.

Babies have basic biological needs, which parents must meet. 'Baby on Board' outlines these needs clearly and explains the biological science underpinning them.

This wonderful book gives parents the confidence they need to derive for themselves how to parent their baby successfully. It helps them navigate the endless advice directed their way by well-meaning family, friends, and passers-by. One issue that causes parents the most anguish - how to settle their distressed and crying baby - is explored in detail.

Written in an accessible and frequently humorous way, Dr Chilton explains the fundamentals of parenting based on science and his forty years' experience as a neonatologist. He also explores the fascinating subject of how babies evolved over the millennia, what they perceive and how they are programmed for survival.

This expanded edition has new chapters on the introduction of solids, how to play with your baby, and the essential drivers of baby sleep and how to enhance them. Many other chapters have been revised and updated.

Dr Chilton's daughter, Georgina Dowden, with whom he collaborates professionally, has extensively rewritten the breastfeeding chapter. She has also contributed many useful additions, with her influence evident throughout the book.
