Publisher's Summary

It’s time to change the way we see babies.

Drawing on principles developed by the educator Dr Maria Montessori, The Montessori Baby shows how to raise your baby from birth to age one with love, respect, insight, and a surprising sense of calm. Cowritten by Simone Davies, author of the bestselling The Montessori Toddler, and Junnifa Uzodike, it’s a book filled with hundreds of practical ideas for understanding what is actually happening with your baby, and how you can mindfully assist in their learning and development. Including how to:

  • Prepare yourself for parenthood—physically, emotionally, intellectually, and spiritually.
  • Become an active observer to understand what your baby is really telling you.
  • Create Montessori spaces in your home, including “yes” spaces where nothing is off-limits.
  • Set up activities that encourage baby’s movement and language development at their own pace
  • Raise a secure baby who’s ready to explore the world with confidence.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

What the critics say

"The guide is thoughtfully and beautifully laid out: block text, bulleted lists, and simple line illustrations accent the many anecdotes about babies and their living spaces from around the world. For parents interested in Montessori concepts of child development, this will be an invaluable resource.”—Publisher's Weekly Starred Review

“A book that advocates a simple environment with less stuff, less fuss, and a slower speed of life.”—Library Journal

Excellent Introductory Book to Montessori!

The book was very interesting to listen to. It provides a lot of useful information about Montessori for babies. I have listened to many parts more than once. I will actually listen to it again and would recommend it to anyone. Next month I will listen to Montessori Toddler. The voice of the reader could not be any better as well. This is my 1st experience listening to a book, and it has been excellent.

Such freeing book

I would recommend this book for parents that really want babies that are free in their environment: of course with safe boundaries.

Love how they talk about the concept, “help me to do it myself”

Also love that we should treat babies with respect. One doesn’t really think that because it’s “a baby”

I wish they had more to say about the sleeping part but other than that it was great . I also bought the book for my sister because I loved it so much . Definitely a book to go back to whenever I’m not sure of something

Garbage

Save your money and buy some other parenting book, there are hundreds out there. This book is a self-contracting, repeating, non-sensical money grab and (worst of all) is an extremely boring slog to listen through. Not only does the narrator sound like a robot, but it doesn’t help that the content she is reading was written by two different writers, who at times repeat each other or contradict. Save your time and money and avoid this title.
