No event in an adult's life equals both the joy and the terror of becoming a parent for the first time. Fortunatly, it's the joy that carries on. But in the beggining, insecurity and fear often take over. Tracy Hogg has seen this time and again. As a registered nurse and nanny with more than twenty years' experience tending some 5,000 babies, she has successfully taught parents how to understand what their babies are trying to tell them with their cries, gestures, and facial expressions. Now parents and babies everywhere can benefit from Tracy's expertise. She unlocks the secrets to infant language so that any parent, grandparent, or caregiver can interpret what babies are 'saying' and give them what they need. Abridged.
