It's reality-check time! You're at least four months into your tour of parenting, and the complexities of child training are starting to multiply. As your baby is growing physically, his mind is adapting with an increasing awareness to new sights, sounds and sensations. He can now interact with his material universe with greater attentiveness. Now feeding time is more than a biological response initiated by a baby's sucking reflex. For the five-month-old, meal times become a complex and conscious interaction between child and parent, food and drink, preference and need, likes and dislikes, must do and won't do! Watch out — big changes are coming to their world and yours!
In his 26th year in practice, join pediatrician Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo to discover the proven methods that more than eight million parents have made their own with incredible success. The second half of your child's first year of life holds some of the most powerful windows into their cognitive and emotional growth and development.
