The way we nurture our babies, from their earliest moments, has a lifelong effect on their health and happiness. What many of us have known instinctively is now a matter of science. Study after study proves that how we hold, feed, play with and settle our babies is a major factor in their long-term wellbeing. Dr Howard Chilton has been a neonatologist (a babies' physician) for over thirty years. He has seen numerous baby-care fads come and go, but has always held to the philosophy now proved by science: you can't give your baby too much love. In Your Cherished Baby, Dr Chilton introduces mothers to a complete approach for settling, feeding and engaging their 0-2 infants. He explains the neurological processes of both baby and mother in this early bonding period. He debunks the myth of baby routines, provides a compelling explanation for colic and excessive crying, and argues for the introduction of varied foods to aid the development of a child's palate and to guard against obesity later in life. Most prevalent to many a sleep-deprived parent, Dr Chilton presents a practical alternative to controlled crying, a currently popular sleep settling technique that he regards as inhumane. Accessible, compassionate and occasionally controversial, Your Cherished Baby is the essential guide to giving babies the best possible start in life.

About the Author

Dr Howard Chilton has been a babies' physician for over 35 years, following training in London, Oxford and the United States. For much of this time he was Director of Newborn Care at the Royal Hospital for Women in Sydney, while also gaining invaluable experience not only as a neonatologist but as a working father to his two daughters, Georgina and Isabella. Dr Chilton continues to work clinically at the Royal Hospital and Prince of Wales Private Hospital and is one of Australia's leading baby doctors. His previous book, Baby on Board, now in its third edition, is revered by parents for its rigorous evidence-based information couched in a reassuring, easy-to-read style.

        As a first time mum, I really enjoyed this book. I found it to be informative, evidence based (rather than on someone's opinion), and gentle in it's advice approach in relation to baby sleep and settling.

          My wife and I found this book extremely useful - answers to every question we had were contained within. It has realistic, scientific-based advice from an author who is a father and a specialist newborn doctor. Unlike other (bestselling) books we read that tried to force us and our little girl down a path that was anything but caring, compassionate and natural, this book helped us tremendously in understanding our baby and her needs, and in the process helped us become better, more understanding, first-time parents. I would recommend this to any new parents, and as a gift to anyone who knows someone who is about to enter the whirlwind, exhilarating world that is parenting.

            I was recommended this book at local parents group and it is real find. Great knowledge of the subject, well written (easy read), and even for third time parent like me it is still great help; there are good explanations of many processes and behaviours. Real eye opener.
