Linda K. Elliot
Designed for new parents (primarily parents of Filipino descent who read Tagalog), this booklet is a guide to support parents in caring for their baby during the first six months in a way that will prepare him to reach his potential socially, physically, and intellectually. It focuses not only on the baby's development and needs, but also on the parent-child relationship. Information is provided on early brain development, and parent strategies for providing a trusting environment, feeding, sleeping, holding and touching, developing eye contact, talking, consoling, and playing with their infant. The last part of the booklet includes blank forms for parents to use to record baby's firsts, favorite things, and characteristics. A list of newborn safety tips addressing sleeping, feeding, health, and safety is also included.

Intended User Audience:
Note: This material is a revision of the 1992 material entitled "A Dance with Your Baby." The developer's information below is for that material; we are waiting for revisions from the author. This booklet was written primarily for parents of newborns with a focus on supporting the growth of positive parent-child relationships. The English version was written for a multiethnic and multilingual population with English proficiencies. It has been used
extensively in home visitation programs in the United States and abroad. It has also been used in university settings for instructional purposes.
Information provided in this booklet is based on the needs of families with newborns. As a supervisor in an early intervention program, the author observed personnel struggling with how to share information with parents regarding newborn care that would not only support healthy newborn development, but also the growth of nurturing, responsive parent-infant relationships. This booklet was written to be shared and discussed with parents from a variety of cultural backgrounds, some with limited reading skills.
The original English version was evaluated by Prevent Child Abuse America (formerly The National Committee to Prevent Child Abuse), and used as part of its Healthy Families America Program. It was field tested with the families served through the early intervention home visitation program of the Hawaii Family Support Center. The original material (A Dance with Baby) was revised based in part on reviews from the CLAS Early Childhood Research Institute.
As of 2000, approximately 300,000 copies in Spanish, English and
Tagalog had been distributed and sold in Canada, the Philipines, and the U.S. 1000 families in the Philippines have used the Tagalog version; 300-400 families have used the Vietnamese version.
