The Continuum Concept
Jean Liedloff, spent two and a half years deep in the South American jungle living with Stone Age Indians. Here living with Sanema and yequena tribes, her experience demolished her Western preconceptions of how we should live, and led her to a radically different view of what human nature really is.
In this book she outlines her belief that babies should be continuously carried by, and never separated from, their mothers, until such time as they are able to crawl away by themselves. She also advocate co-sleeping and on-demand breast-feeding and believe that children should be central to their parents' world, but not the centre of it.
In this book she offers a new understanding of how we have lost much of our natural well-being and suggests practical ways to regain it for our children and for ourselves.
