This book is one of the most profound I have read about creating environments for young children to thrive. It’d not an easy read – but well worth it. Don’t skip over the very intense chapter on young children and stress. This chapter alone makes the book invaluable.
A Young Mother’s Experience: I was aware that something was wrong when Hannah was 24 hours old.

In the past 6 hours Hannah’s nappies had become offensive to anyone with a nose in the surrounding neighbourhood! Following the hospital’s instructions we made contact.
