Description

Might you and your baby both sleep better if you shared a bed? How old is too old for breastfeeding? What is a father's role in nurturing a newborn? How does early attachment foster a child's eventual independence? Dr. Bill and Martha Sears -- the doctor-and-nurse, husband-and-wife team who coined the term "attachment parenting" -- answer these and many more questions in this practical, inspiring guide. Attachment parenting is a style of parenting that encourages a strong early attachment, and advocates parental responsiveness to babies' dependency needs. "The Attachment Parenting Book" clearly explains the six "Baby B's" that form the basis of this increasingly popular parenting style: Bonding, Breastfeeding, Babywearing, Bedding close to baby, Belief in the language value of baby's cry, Beware of baby trainers.Here's all the information you need to achieve your most important goals as a new parent: to know your child, to help your child feel right, and to enjoy parenting.

    I recommend this book to everyone I meet. It really helped me to stop listening to others about how to raise my little girl and just do what felt right to me. It's OK to sleep with your baby and to carry them around all day.
  • Must read for new moms!

    This book helped me understand why there is no such thing as crying it out. My son is a now a healthy confident 4 year old. When he's around other children his age & older it's obvious why the principles in this book work.
