The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care, by Sally Fallon MorellNew Trends Publishing
In his studies of isolated non-industrialized peoples, Dr. Weston A. Price formulated the dietary laws necessary for ensuring the health and vitality of our children, generation after generation. The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care now makes these principles available to modern parents, with primary emphasis on a nutrient-dense diet starting before conception and continuing through pregnancy, breastfeeding and the period of growth, as well as addressing parental concerns about interventions during pregnancy and birth, vaccinations, and conventional medical practices for newborns.There is also a section devoted totheillnesses of childhood, which explains the role of fever in strengthening the immune system and provides detailed instructions on natural therapies for everything from autism to whooping cough. The work of Rudolf Steiner supports the book's emphasis on the child's spiritual requirement for imaginative play.
