Rather than being an isolated part of a baby's life, sleep impacts on and is affected by nutrition, development and personality. Arna Skula, a clinical nurse specialist who runs an outpatient clinic for babies with sleep problems, explains how parents can establish and maintain good sleep habits in their babies and small children, and offers ways to solve sleep problems. Unique, specially created charts show the typical sleep and wake patterns for babies at all key stages.

Super Foods for Pregnancy

Susannah Marriott
Authors:
Susannah Marriott

Certain foods pack a nutritional punch, and can provide the optimal nutrients to nourish an expectant woman - particularly important when pregnancy side effects make eating difficult. By feasting on the foods that do her and her baby most good, a pregnant woman can ensure that her baby's brain and other organs, tissues and bones, develop healthily and that she maintains the strength and stamina to carry her baby to term and withstand the rigours of labour and delivery. Some foods also can be used to create safe and supportive products that can be applied to the skin, used to promote sleep and combat nausea and other side effects. Additionally, there is guidance on growing some beneficial vegetables and herbs in a small garden or containers, or gathering from the wild.

Capturing Light

Michael Freeman
Authors:
Michael Freeman

For professional photographers, chasing the light, waiting for it, sometimes helping it, and finally capturing it is a constant preoccupation and for some, an obsession. Drawing on four decades of working with light, Michael Freeman takes a simple but practical approach to interpreting, reacting to, and capturing photography's most valuable commodity.Practical advice is organised into three straightforward sections: Waiting, Chasing, and Helping. Begin by mastering the art of patience, and recognise the immense value of anticipating and planning for gorgeous light that's just over the horizon. Then learn the techniques to meet otherwise transient and fleeting lighting conditions halfway, with quick thinking and fast reactions. Finally, make the most of the tools at your disposal to enhance and manipulate light as you find it, covering everything from in-the-field shooting choices to technical transformations in post-production. This is the method of a working professional the way to interpret, approach, and master whatever lighting situation is thrown at you and always get the shot, no matter what.
