About the Book
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 ondemand breast-feeding and believe that children should be central to their parents' world, but not the centre of it.
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.
"It is unfortunate that we humans have gone so far from our instincts that we need a book to teach us to be humans. But if there is a book that can do this, it is definitely The Continuum Concept. We wish the readers a loving and ever joyful parenting experience."

"The Continuum Concept is a book that really can and does change lives. It needs to be read."
