Pinky McKay is an Australian best-selling author with four titles published by Penguin including Sleeping Like a baby, 100 Ways to Calm the Crying, Toddler Tactics and Parenting By Heart. She is also an International Board certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) and runs a private practice in Melbourne. Pinky’s reach extends worldwide with support for parents via teleseminars and webcasts to provide tips on gentle, responsive baby care.
In a world where common sense isn’t so common, Pinky McKay provides real-world, no-nonsense, parenting support and approaches with a blend of humour, sharp wit and wisdom not found anywhere else. She specializes in gentle parenting styles that honour mothers’ natural instincts to respond to their babies and empower a positive response from infants and toddlers. She says, “Babies and toddlers are people too and they deserve empathy and respect, not ‘training’ through techniques such as rigid routines, controlled crying or spanking. This allows children to respond positively to their environment and to develop appropriate boundaries through mutual respect and strong family relationships.”
Her real world experience stems from being the mother of five and ‘hands on’ grandmother of three littlies.
