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®). 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. Magda Gerber’s 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.
