We are very sorry that this book is "out-of-print"! Amazon.com may offer "used" copies, and the book is worth your added effort. The authors are experienced writing children's books and have researched deeply into baby history to unearth all manner of information pertaining to many aspects such as: pregnancy, childbirth, care, feeding, washing, dressing, carrying, rocking and understanding babies. The evolution of attitudes towards babies in Western civilization from antiquity to the present can be better understood. This book contains 245 illustrations of which 187 are in full color. Translated from French.
