  11. 11. A final thought…<br /> ‘Mothers with babies are dealing with a developing, changing situation; the baby starts off not knowing about the world, and by the time they have finished their job the baby is grown up into someone who know about the world and can find a way to live in it, and even to take part in the way it behaves. What a tremendous development!’<br />The Child, the Family and the Outside World, D.W.Winnicott<br />
