Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book that was published is “Baby care and child care – zero to three”. I had ‘Child development’ as a major subject in my M.Sc (Master of Science in Human development). Child development refers to biological, psychological and physical changes in human beings from birth to adolescence.
Many times people become parents unexpectedly and they panic. If parents do not have adequate knowledge of baby care and child care, parenting experience can turn into a nightmare. Parenting is no easy job. This book is a complete guide to parents of newborns, infants and toddlers. It deals with the day to day care, normal development of your baby, health issues, behavioral issues, newborn concerns, infant concerns, toddler concerns and a lot more.
