Best book for a tired, anxious parent. I loved it.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Attachment Parenting : Instinctive Care for Your Baby and Young Child (Paperback)
I really wish I had had this book to read while I was still pregnant. It answers so many questions that I had that no other book seemed to address. And it approaches childcare very realistically. It's the only parenting book I've seen that tells you honestly how often a new baby will want to nurse. Mine wanted to eat every hour and I was totally unprepared because other books said he would go two to four hours between each nursing session. This book tells the truth. I also really appreciated the section on how to make sure that you are safe when you sleep with your baby. It gives many practical tips for creating different ways to get more sleep as a new parent. My husband liked the book because it doesn't leave fathers out. My only suggestion would have been to make the book a bit shorter.
