Product Overview

Mayim Bialik was the child star of the popular 1990s TV sitcom Blossom, but she definitely didn?t follow the typical child-star trajectory. Instead, Mayim got her PhD in neuroscience from UCLA, married her college sweetheart, and had two kids. Mayim then did what many new moms do?she read a lot of books, talked with other parents, and she soon started questioning a lot of the conventional wisdom she heard about the ?right? way to raise a child. That?s when she turned to attachment parenting, a philosophy and lifestyle popularized by well-known physicians like Dr. William Sears and Dr. Jay Gordon.

To Mayim, attachment parenting?s natural, child-led approach not only felt right emotionally, it made sense intellectually and instinctually. She found that when she followed her intuition and relaxed into her role as a mother instead of following some rigid parenting script, both she and her children thrived. Drawing on both her experience as a mother and her scientific background, Mayim presents the major tenets of attachment parenting, including:


How to avoid ?sleep training? and get a great night?s sleep for the whole family.


Learn how to listen to your baby?s cues rather than sticking to a rigid schedule?and why people on airplanes love a nursing mother.


How to ?wear? your baby in a sling or a wrap to develop a closer bond with your child?it?s possible even for mamas with bad backs (and with big babies)!

GENTLE DISCIPLINE How to get your child to behave without yelling, threats, or time-outs?it really can be done.

Mayim describes the beauty, simplicity, and purposefulness of attachment parenting, and how it has become the guiding principle for her family. Much more than a simple how-to parenting guide, Beyond the Sling shows us that the core principles underlying attachment parenting are universal and can be appreciated no matter how you decide to raise your child.
