Raising Your Spirited Baby: A Breakthrough Guide to Thriving When Your Baby Is More . . . Alert and Intense and Struggles to Sleep by Mary Sheedy Kurcinka Ed.D. (2020)
Does your baby bursts into tears when another baby in the same situation sleeps soundly?
Do the strategies your friends swear by not work with your baby?
Do the upsets and shrieking come out of seemingly nowhere and take forever to subside?
Moms and dads who answer “yes,” are the parents of a spirited infant. Spirited infants are the outliers—the exceptions to the “rules.” They are genetically wired to be alert and intense. Raising them takes special skills and patient perseverance.
In this groundbreaking new book, beloved parenting expert Mary Sheedy Kurcinka, Ed.D., offers her findings in the fields of neuroscience, sleep, temperament, self-regulation, attachment, and parent-child interactions, and shares what she has learned from hands-on experiences with families to bring this much-needed perspective to the parenting of babies under eighteen months of age, including:
• A plan for success with the 5-step Spirited Baby™ Methodology
• How to master the “NUDGE” approach to help your baby thrive
• Parental Permissions – practical advice for parents to help them make sure their needs are met
• Resources to ensure the whole family unit finds balance and happiness
Raising Your Spirited Baby is a shame-free, guilt-free how-to handbook that will be embraced by parents—and everyone who supports them—as a simple, trusted companion.
