Publisher Comments:

The Baby Book covers every aspect of infant care - from newborn bonding to toilet training. William Sears, M.D. and Martha Sears, R.N., pediatric specialists and parents of eight children, write clearly and authoritatively from their vast professional and personal experience. Emphasizing the basic needs of babies - eating, sleeping, development, health, and comfort - they provide specific, up-to-date information on issues of concern to every new parent:
  • Parent-infant attachment
  • Feeding baby right
  • Soothing the fussy baby
  • Getting baby to sleep
  • Reducing the risk of SIDS
  • Understanding baby's development
  • Common illnesses
  • Dealing with temper tantrums
  • Toilet training
  • Toddler behavior
  • Babyproofing the home
  • Working and parenting
The Baby Book - the new parenting bible of the '90s - presents a parenting philosophy that takes into account contemporary attitudes and realities. The Searses call this parenting style "attachment parenting" and explain how it assures each child the attention he or she needs and nurtures the growth of the entire family as well. Their recommendations and advice will help parents develop strong bonds with their children - ultimately making better babies and better families.

We traded in the What to Expect books for this and have not been disappointed. I had been resistant to attatchment parenting until my son was about 4 months old (he is now 2). We don't always follow attatchment parenting and you don't need to in order to find helpful advice on everything fom nutrition to how to deal with a cold to baby's developmental stages. Highly reccommended for all those times you wonder about something your baby is doing or what to do with him!
