About this book

Sister Lilian’s Babycare Companion | Family & Health

Lilian Paramor

Human & Rousseau

Sister Lilian is a loved and trusted babycare expert. In this updated edition of her highly regarded Babycare Companion she addresses the most important parenting issues from birth up to and including three years of age.

The book starts with a day-by-day, week-by-week and month-by-month look at the first year of the baby’s life, aimed at instilling confidence in the mother while she gets to know her baby. It offers all the help she needs for getting off to a good start.

Parents are shown how to get to know their babies physically and emotionally, so that they become able to read them like a book. Sister Lilian gently guides them to rely more on instinct and common sense while raising their children.

Common issues of parenting are dealt with in topic-driven sections. Sister Lilian adopts an approach of integrating complementary (especially homeopathy) and conventional remedies where there are health concerns (colic, childhood diseases, feeding problems, sleep disturbances) and empowers parents to become active parents in the health of their family.

Sister Lilian’s book is destined to become new parents’ most trusted companion on the challenging but rewarding journey of parenthood.

Ook beskikbaar in Afrikaans: Suster Lilian se babasorgboek.
