I don't want to lose the babies!' His big hand grasped hers tightly and then let go. 'You won't. We'll get you seen to. It'll be a false alarm.' He threw her a shaky grin, which she knew was false because it wavered. 'Indigestion.

The Babies and Bedwetters of Baker St is the second book in the trilogy, following on from – Overlapping Stains: A Bedwetting Novel. The story continues with a new bedwetter moving into the house.

Alice's backstory comes to bear as the three meet a group of Adult Babies and their lives are turned upside down. A wonderful story of discovery, nappies, love and bedwetting. And in the end, it is about overcoming the past and embracing the future, diapered and safe.

A “breezy and entertaining” tour of parenting practices around the world that shows there’s more than one way to diaper a baby (The Boston Globe). Mei-Ling Hopgood, a first-time mom from suburban Michigan—now living in Buenos Aires—was shocked that Argentine parents allowed their children to stay up until all hours of the night. Could there really be social and developmental advantages to this custom? Driven by a journalist’s curiosity (and a new mother’s desperation for answers), Hopgood embarked on a journey to learn how other cultures approach the challenges all parents face: bedtimes, toilet training, feeding, teaching, and more. Observing parents around the globe and interviewing anthropologists, educators, and child-care experts, she discovered a world of new ideas. The Chinese excel at potty training, teaching their wee ones as young as six months old. Kenyans wear their babies in colorful cloth slings—not only is it part of their cultural heritage, but strollers seem outright silly on Nairobi’s chaotic sidewalks. And the French are experts at turning their babies into healthy, adventurous eaters. Hopgood tested her discoveries on her spirited toddler, Sofia, with some enlightening results. This look at the ways other cultures raise children offers parents the option of experimenting with tried and true methods—and reveals that there are a surprising number of ways to be a good parent. “Hopgood is charmingly self-deprecating about her own mothering of the formidable Sofia, who emerges as a sassy character in her own right.” —The Boston Globe “A best bet for new parents.” —Booklist, starred review

By all indicators, the reproductive health of Americans has been deteriorating since 1980. Our nation is troubled by rates of teen pregnancies and newborn deaths that are worse than almost all others in the Western world. Science and Babies is a straightforward presentation of the major reproductive issues we face that suggests answers for the public. The book discusses how the clash of opinions on sex and family planning prevents us from making a national commitment to reproductive health; why people in the United States have fewer contraceptive choices than those in many other countries; what we need to do to improve social and medical services for teens and people living in poverty; how couples should "shop" for a fertility service and make consumer-wise decisions; and what we can expect in the future--featuring interesting accounts of potential scientific advances.

Special care babies are at the centre of a complex system of relationships involving both family members and professionals. Prematurity, disability and life-threatening situations create a crisis which is likely to have a different meaning for each participant. Each baby's developing relationships will both influence and be influenced by relationships within the hospital and the family system. Special Care Babies and their Developing Relationships puts professionals in touch with how babies, their parents and the staff who care for them actually experience neonatal care. The book explores institutional, cultural and family beliefs about prematurity and considers the differences in beliefs and in needs of parents and staff. Anne McFadyen argues that to support the key mother-child relationship, these differences must be acknowledged, as they are at the heart of the relationship between two crucial systems which have the power to influence the baby's survival and the rest of his or her life.

Freshly revised and updated to include incredible full-color photography, Super Nutrition for Babies, Revised Edition, features new recipes and the latest nutritional recommendations. Nutrition and proper feeding are critical in a baby’s formative first months and years. However, many traditional feeding recommendations and convenience-focused baby foods are created based on convention, rather than fostering optimal health and nutrition for infants. Filled with sugar, preservatives, and chemically-refined ingredients, these conventional baby foods make children vulnerable to illnesses and developmental difficulties now—and later in life. The revised version of Super Nutrition for Babies gives parents the latest science-verified nutritional recommendations for feeding their child. Based on the recommendations of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston A. Price and traditional food principles, Super Nutrition for Babies, Revised Edition provides you with information on all aspects of nutrition and feeding, including when to introduce meat in a child’s diet, healthier alternatives to dairy and soy, and introducing solid foods. You'll also get a comprehensive tutorial on establishing a regular eating schedule, dealing with picky eating, and the best foods for every age and stage. Super Nutrition for Babies, Revised Edition is everything you need to give your baby the best nutrition to minimize illness, improve sleep, and optimize brain development.
