William and Martha Sears, a pediatrician and a registered nurse, team up their two sons to update their guide to “attachment parenting.” This team of authors teach new parents how to bond with their babies through seven fundamental behaviors, including breastfeeding and “babywearing”. This book covers everything from birth to two years and includes tips for getting your baby to sleep and feeding him the “right fats,” to information about early health concerns, the major steps in infant development and troublesome but typical toddler behavior. Authors share from their experience as parents and offer reassuring help to new parents.
Why I Like It
When I was pregnant I read all the books like What to Expect When You Are Expecting and The Girlfriends Guide to Pregnancy, however I forgot to read the books about how to care for your baby! Two weeks after my daughter was born I went on the hunt for a good baby care book and found The Baby Book. The information in the book proved to be invaluable. I found that the information about “babywearing” and the chart for developmental milestones to be extremely helpful. I also use this book to find information on minor medical questions I have. Since the authors of this book are pediatricians and a registered nurse I can count on them to provide accurate medical information.
