Your Amazing Newborn celebrates a baby's extraordinary abilities in the first hours and days of life. Marshall and Phyllis Klaus take parents and all those who care for new families into this freshly charted world, one they have been exploring for decades. The results of their fascinating research are illuminated by over 120 exquisite photographs, all of babies less than two weeks old.Your Amazing Newborn begins before birth with images of fetuses actually comforting themselves in the womb. We then see newborns less than one hour old crawling unassisted to the breast, recognizing the voices of their parents, and shutting our unwanted sights and sounds. Parents will learn how to discover an infant's clear preferences for certain shapes, smells, tastes, and tones of voice. They will be delighted by the ways babies seem to be able to ensure their own survival, and they will be amazed that within days after birth, newborns can engage in an intimate and reciprocal choreography, and nestle into a parent's embrace as though they had practiced for years. Your Amazing Newborn is a must for parents-to-be, grandparents, siblings, and caregivers; through its stunning photographs we see the first reach, the first mutual gaze-and most wonderful of all-the first spark of recognition that ignites a lifetime bond.

Review:

Only 30 minutes old, and a baby stares at her mother's face, then begins maneuvering downward toward mom's nipple. A few days old, and she can track a ball, and "dialogue" with her limbs. Newborns are extraordinary beings, with innate abilities far beyond what is commonly believed. In Your Amazing Newborn, authors Marshall and Phyllis Klaus, renowned experts and authors in the field of newborns (Bonding and Mothering the Mother), combine information gained from decades of research with clear explanations geared toward new parents. The authors begin with the fetus. Through descriptions and ultrasound photography, they discuss the dialogue between mother and fetus and demonstrate the development of touch and hearing. Klaus and Klaus then explore the first minutes of life (the quiet, alert state immediately after birth) and the first few days, including descriptions of the newborn's innate senses and the ability to imitate, reach towards a parent, and enjoy sound and smell. Later chapters focus on adoption, fathering, grandparenting, and sibling responses to a new baby. Enhanced by black-and-white photographs capturing a newborn's remarkable abilities, this beautiful book is for anyone enchanted by babies. For new parents and parents-to-be, it provides insight and useful information about associating with and loving a newborn, and introducing him to the world. --Ericka Lutz
