The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care by Sally Fallon Morell and Thomas S Cowan. The primary emphasis is on a nutrient-dense diet starting before conception and continuing through pregnancy, breastfeeding and the period of growth. The Nourishing Traditions Book of Baby & Child Care makes the dietary laws of Dr. Weston A. Price applicable to modern parents.
This compendium of practical advice also addresses parental concerns about interventions during pregnancy and birth, vaccinations, and conventional medical practices for newborns. The work of Rudolf Steiner supports the book's emphasis on the child's spiritual requirement for imaginative play. A section devoted to the illnesses of childhood explains the role of fever in strengthening the immune system and provides detailed instructions on natural therapies for everything from autism to whooping cough.
As with her other books, there are no Instagrammable Photographs to seduce you, just sensible practical (well founded) explanations of the birthing and parenting life and the challenges faced by parents, and of course a few healthy recipes in Appendix 3. Books by Sally Fallon Morell typically are thoroughly researched and referenced. This book is no exception, with 11 pages of references to help you should you wish to embark on your own research or verify any claims made by the authors.
Dr. Weston A. Price studied the health of isolated non-industrialized peoples and formulated the principles necessary for ensuring our health and vitality generation after generation.
