Paperback by Simone Davies and Junnifa Uzodike

The Montessori Baby draws on the child-led principles of the Montessori educational method to create a first year defined by love, respect, understanding, and a surprising sense of calm.

Maria Montessori observed that all children have what she called “an absorbent mind,” ready to drink it all in, and that the role of parents is to mindfully assist in their learning and development. With babies, that means less is more – a lot less stuff, for sure, but also less speed; slow way down, and avoid rushing through feeding, diaper changes, and the like. There are tips on how to set clear and kind boundaries, how to create a secure sense of attachment, how best to speak to baby, and even what kind of toys to use – all through the Montessori lens.

The Montessori Baby is that rare parenting book that’s a pleasure to look at – beautiful colour illustrations and a bright airy design reinforce the book’s direct and jargon-free approach. It may also inspire parents to look at their own homes in a different way and use the Montessori aesthetic to create an environment of uncluttered calm. The whole family will benefit.
