Desmond Morris combines his skills as a zoologist and manwatcher to take a close look at the most remarkable life-form ever to draw breath on this planet - the human baby. In a revealing portrait of life from the baby's point of view, Desmond Morris answers the questions that parents ask:
- how important is a mother to her baby?
- how well can babies hear, smell and taste?
- why do babies cry?
- what makes a baby smile?
'Babywatching' is an indispensable guide to the earliest stage of human life.
