Parenting is the most difficult task that most people undertake - yet most receive little or no training for it.
Understanding and preparing for the arrival of a baby is not innate: new parents require knowledge and experience to understand the needs of their baby.
Every baby is a unique individual from the moment of birth, with its own likes and dislikes. Only by being finely tuned to a baby's unique communication can an adult fully understand the baby and its needs.
The social baby can help provide support and reassurance to new parents, essential in promoting a safe and secure environment for infants.
