It may be one of the most natural processes, but becoming a parent can be as daunting as it is rewarding. Having a baby changes everything, and the biggest area of change for new parents is also one of the least explored: how do you relate to this new person in your life? Learning to Love explores the evolving relationship between mother, father and baby. Focusing on the first year of life, it looks at the emotional dimension of becoming a parent, and offers an understanding of the babys emotional needs. Also examined are: key mental and emotional milestones in the first 12 months; parents changing relationship with each other as well as their baby; growth of both the traditional and non-traditional family unit; and case studies of common parenting dilemmas.
