Being With Babies


Caregivers influence how babies think and interact as well as how they develop. The question is how will they make a difference? The authors believe that depends on how caregivers and infants react, respond, and relate to each other. Caregivers affect how babies view themselves and how they will relate to others in the future by the way they approach caring for and handling babies as well as responding to babies’ needs.


Being With Babies: Understanding and Responding to the Infants in Your Care (Best Practices for Caregivers) is a great resource for beginning and experienced caregivers. Each chapter includes information on the developmental stages of babies and describes issues that caregivers face every day. This book offers scenarios that illustrate these challenges, then suggests solutions caregivers can use to address the issues while meeting the needs of the babies.
