This review is from: Baby Wisdom: The World's Best-kept Secrets for the First Year of Parenting (Paperback)
I borrowed Baby Wisdom from our library when I was 6 months pregnant with my first baby. I must say I was lucky to read it during pregnancy because it simply opened up my mind to how I would want to parent my child.
Deborah Jackson explores different parenting practices through time and space. She does not say that all "traditional" practices are good (throwing colostrum away was common practice in some cultures, and thanks to science we now know how valuable it is). On the other hand, following one's instinct and re-thinking what our modern society takes for granted are the main messages of the book. An important read!
