This compact classic describes Alessandra Piontelli's experience of observing two babies over several years. These children came from diverse social, economic and familial backgrounds but a number of interesting similarities arose to make them a good choice for comparison out of the many babies observed by Dr Piontelli throughout her career. This book is required reading for all students and professionals involved in the important field of infant observation.

Reviews and Endorsements

Each case study begins by describing the initial contact with the two mothers, before going on to describe the other members of the families. The development of each situation is traced through the years, as is the development of each baby under observation. Finally, the two cases are reviewed together and some general conclusions are drawn.
These case studies are at times upsetting, but equally fascinating reading. They provide a thought-provoking insight into the benefits and role of infant observation in psychoanalysis.
This classic text is required reading for all students and professionals involved in this important field of research.
