"The Aware Baby is chock full of reliable information and practical advice on a wide range of child rearing issues from how to deal with infant crying to discipline and toilet training. The style is clear, concise and vivid. It is a pleasure to read, and I recommend it most highly."
-Thomas R. Verny, M.D., Psychiatrist and author of The Secret Life of the Unborn Child
"The exquisite awareness of babies celebrated in this book is revolutionary and refreshing. Soundly based on empirical research and great good sense, this book will doubly bless both the parents and their very fortunate infants."
-David B. Chamberlain, Ph.D., Author of The Mind of Your Newborn Baby
"The Aware Baby is an extremely useful (perhaps essential) guidebook for parents... I particularly appreciate the depth at which Dr. Solter deals with sleep, feeding, and behavioral difficulties, and the methods that she advocates for dealing with crying (probably the most misunderstood aspect of parenting). Her chapters on playing with babies and on approaches to bring about secure attachment and bonding are exceptional. This book should be mandatory reading for all parents and for professionals who deal with babies and children."
-William R. Emerson, Ph.D., Pioneer of infant therapy
Dr. Aletha Solter... gives us the key to infant, and later adult, mental health. It is my belief that every prospective parent on earth should read her book, The Aware Baby."
-Paul Vereshack, M.D., Psychiatrist and author of The Psychotherapy of The Deepest Self
The Aware Baby presents novice parents with a complete understanding of their baby's emotional needs from conception to two-and-a-half years of age. If you are expecting a baby, or are the brand new parents of one, then begin your parental responsibilities with a thorough and thoughtful reading of Aletha Solter's The Aware Baby.

Aletha Solter is a Swiss/American developmental psychologist living in Southern California. She studied with Dr. Jean Piaget in Geneva, Switzerland, where she earned a Master's Degree in human biology. She holds a Ph.D. in psychology from the University of California. Her books have been translated into many languages, and she is recognized internationally as an expert on attachment, trauma, and non-punitive discipline.

In my opinion this is the absolute child raising book for infants and toddlers. Solter's approach is really sensitive and caring for both the baby and the parents/caregivers. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Olga Paraskeva
