Raise self-confident, self-reliant children using the RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers) Approach.
Your baby knows more than you think. That's the heart of the principles and teachings of Magda Gerber, founder of RIE (Resources for Infant Educarers), and Educaring. Baby Knows Best is based on Gerber's belief in babies' natural abilities to develop at their own pace, without coaxing from helicoptering or hovering parents. The Educaring Approach helps parents see their infants as competent people with a growing ability to communicate, problem-solve, and self-soothe.
Baby Knows Best is a comprehensive resource that shows parents how to respond to their babies' cues and signals; how to develop healthy sleep habits; why babies need uninterrupted playtime; and how to set clear, consistent limits. The result? More relaxed parents and more confident, self-reliant children.

The idea to just "Observe" your baby is quite inspiring and not that easily to be achieved by parents these days (including myself). Then through the sharing of stories, I have realized the importance of me slowing down, wait for my baby to process and response, so I don't take away her opportunities to develop and be self-reliant, self-confident! I am more motivated as a mom after reading the book as I have more faith knowing my baby has her intrinsic abilities in this world and perhaps to surprise me with these abilities at very early stage of her development! Thank you, Deborah.
The way it is read, very calm and soft.
Recommend it for new moms, even though I think it's even better to read it before you give birth.
great stuff....narrator was great, but so soft and soothing it often put me to sleep, but not for lack of interest!
I'm so grateful for the information in this book! I enjoyed the overview focusing on infancy through toddler and integrating various concepts of the RIE philosophy at different stages of development.
"Fantastic book please read if you are a parent!"
no queria detenerme! me enseño mucho para estar y disfrutar a mi hijo! la base de este enfoque es el respeto total a los bebes, incluye ejemplos de como poner límites sin "faltar al respeto" a las pequeñas personitas que estamos educando... o educuidando... y creo que esto es basico para mejorar la calidad de las relaciones que los seres humanos tenemos en la actualidad....
