Description: Meredith Small's groundbreaking book reveals her remarkable findings in the new science of ethnopediatrics. Professor Small joins pediatricians, child development researchers, and anthropologists across the country who are studying to what extent the way we parent our infants is based on biological needs and to what extent it is based on culture -- and how sometimes what is culturally dictated may not be what's best for babies.

Parents are often besieged with advice and instructions from friends and family on what is the right and wrong way to bring up a baby, yet these suggestions can run directly counter to a baby's biological needs. Should an infant be encouraged to sleep alone? Is breastfeeding better than bottle-feeding, or is that just a myth of the nineties? How much time should pass before a mother picks up her crying infant? And how important is it really to a baby's development to talk and sing to him or her? These are but a few of the important questions Small addresses, and the answers are not only surprising, but may even change the way we raise our children.
