|Britain's best-known zoologist and the acclaimed writer Desmond Morris has hit out at modern baby books for advocating "unnatural" methods of child-rearing.
The Naked Ape author intends to publish his own childcare guide because he says that babies should be given tender loving care whenever they need it, instead of being left to fend for themselves as advocated by some modern nannies.
Morris said that he had grown weary of "prescriptive" baby books that attempt to introduce "cold discipline" into a relationship that should only be about nurturing.
