Publisher's Synopsis

Babies are strange creatures. They enter our lives, and things are never the same again. In this unusual book, Ian Sansom (father of three) conveys the oddness and beauty of human beings in their first year of life, and the cataclysmic affect they have on those around them. At a time when most books on babies are manuals crammed with milestones and measurements, The Truth About Babies is different. It is written as a series of meditations on every aspect of babies, from bathing, boredom, breastfeeding and buggies to weaning, weight, words and work. Sansom manages to be both playful and profound, both philosophical and earthy - and frequently very funny.
