An inspiring and practical book that covers everything the parent of a toddler needs to know about the best, most natural way to care for their child. The book's chapters cover general care and feeding, crying, comfort and sleeping, development and play, and the preschool years.

Natural therapies and the best of traditional advice are combined with the most up-to-date research to offer advice on illness, health checks, first aid and eating plans. The inspiring, reassuring text gives practical help on issues such as a healthy and varied diet, natural skin care, improving sleep patterns, providing stimulating and low cost entertainment and encouraging social skills and good behaviour.
Lovingly illustrated with over 240 specially shot images that reflect the fun, excitement and challenges of being parent to a toddler, this book offers everything an ecologically-aware family needs to know about bringing up children in a safe, happy and healthy environment.
