Fascinating insight into how babies were raised in the 1950sFrom how to dress baby (matinee coats and bonnets) to how to administer feeds (strictly four-hourly if following the Truby King method), the child-rearing methods of the 1950s are a fascinating insight into the lives of women in that decade. Here author, mother, and grandmother Sheila Hardy collects heartwarming personal anecdotes from those women, many now in their eighties, who became mothers during this fascinating postwar period. From the benefits of "crying it out" and being put out in the garden to gripe water and Listen with Mother, the wisdom of mothers from the 1950s reverberates down the decades to young mothers of any generation and is a hilarious and, at times, poignant trip down memory lane for any mother or child of the 1950s.
