Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The "baby bible" of the post-Dr. Spock generation, already embraced by hundreds of thousands of American parents, has now been revised, expanded, and brought thoroughly up-to-date — with the latest information on everything from diapering to day care, from midwifery to hospital birthing rooms, from postpartum nutrition to infant development. Dr. Bill and Martha Sears draw from their vast experience both as medical professionals and as the parents of eight children to provide comprehensive information on virtually every aspect of infant care. Working for the first time with their sons Dr. Bob and Dr. Jim, both pediatric specialists in their own right, the Searses have produced a completely updated guide that is unrivaled in its scope and authority. The Baby Book focuses on the essential needs of babies — cating, sleeping, development, health, and comfort — as it addresses the questions of greatest concern to today's parents. The Baby Book presents a practical, contemporary approach to parenting that reflects the way we live today. The Searses acknowledge that there is no one way to parent a baby, and they offer the basic guidance and inspiration you need to develop the parenting style that best suits you and your child. The Baby Book is a rich and invaluable resource that will help you get the most out of parenting — for your child, for yourself, and for your entire family.

Synopsis:

Features information on every aspect of infant care, including the treatment of illnesses and infant nutritional requirements, and focuses on a baby's five needs: eating, sleeping, development, health, and comfort.

Synopsis:

After more than 10 years and a half-million copies sold, the classic "bible" for new parents is now revised and updated. Focusing on the essential needs of babies, the authors address the questions of greatest concerns to parents today, from diapering and daycare to midwifery and "birthing rooms."

This book was a very good reference guide. I particularly liked the developement charts and the way the book was organized for quick reference. Dr. Sears is good at reminding you that your intuition counts and attachment parenting is just a natural parenting style and you can adopt all or part of it and any amount is better than none. Most importantly, it's not a training book.

This is the best book for real honest attachment parenting advice. I only wish that I had bought it before my son was born, (I got it when he was about 6 weeks old) as it has some great prenatal info that beats any conventional What-to-expect type of book.
