In this book baby expert Vivien Sabel introduces you to her revolutionary technique, The Blossom Method™, which will not only give you the skills to understand the language of the newborn but will also show you how to talk back so that your baby feels understood. Named after her own daughter, Blossom, who provided her with her first experience of tongue-talking, the term also echoes the blossoming relationship between adult and child during those early hours, days and weeks of life.
Imagine how much easier life would be if you could talk to your baby and understand his or her emotions, needs and wants. In The Blossom Method™, Vivien Sabel supports you to do just that – through learning about your baby’s non-verbal communications. With this groundbreaking technique, you will be shown how to meet your baby’s needs before he or she cries.
Discover how to:
– Understand your baby’s body language and ‘tongue talking’ signals
– Recognise when your baby is hungry, irritable or ill
– Help your baby to feel understood and supported
– Feel less frustration and gain more parenting confidence
– Develop an even closer bond and attachment
The Blossom Method™ encourages you to understand and communicate with your baby from day one, leading to an even happier, settled baby and a strong parent–child bond.
