The Happiest Baby

The Happiest Baby

Ever since I was little, I have been fascinated by frogs and bugs and understanding how everything in our world….made sense! How all of Nature danced and spun, pulled and pushed and yet, in extraordinary and unexpected ways, always found its way back to a perfect harmony.

In my working with families for almost 30 years, I have come to understand that toddlers also always “make sense”! They dance and spin, pull and push, but they can quickly be led back to harmony if you know the odd and often unexpected path.

I travel that path every day with the toddlers who visit me for their health care. And now, like an adventurer who has just returned from an unexplored land, I am very excited to share the secrets I have discovered about toddlers with parents, grandparents, health professionals, educators, and all lovers of young children. In my first book, THE HAPPIEST BABY ON THE BLOCK, I explain how calming even the fussiest infants is easy once you can see the world from their point of view. Inside the womb newborns are continually fed, shushed, jiggled and cuddled (the sound our fetuses hear is louder than a vacuum cleaner…24/7). But once they’re born we leave them alone, in almost total stillness, for hours a day! No wonder so many babies have trouble adjusting during those first three months.
