‘The First Five Years’ by Dr Philippa Kaye (White Ladder) is an excellent guide book to everything you need to know about your little one for the first five years.
From birth to primary school, this book will talk you through all the important baby and toddler milestones, helping you to understand your child’s development at every stage.
You will find loads of advice on how to encourage your child’s progress, looking at motor skills, playing, exercise, eating, behaviour, and communication.
There is advice on those questions we’ve all asked, such as:
- Why do toddlers throw food on the floor again and again so that they can watch you pick it up?
- What's the best way to help a child learn to walk?
- When does a child understand the word 'no'?
