||Based on the philosophy of attachment parenting--creating an intense bond between parents and their babies through methods such as breastfeeding and babywearing--this incredible resource for new parents devotes over 700 pages to caring for newborns, infants, and toddlers. Drawing from 30 years of personal and professional experiences, the Searses have written 28 chapters detailing everything from "Attachment-Promoting Behaviors" and "Pacifiers: In or Out?" to "Feeding Solids: Six to Nine Months" and "Parenting the Baby with Fever." Topics covered include childhood nutrition, family bonding, treatment of common illnesses, toilet training, and managing the demands of career and parenthood. The book is accompanied by B&W illustrations, and resources and growth charts are also included. The Searses have written numerous books, including THE PREGNANCY BOOK and THE SUCCESSFUL CHILD.
||Parenting, in a nutshell, is giving your children the tools to succeed in life. Every other baby book is missing a chapter that would be entitled "Parenting Your Baby." Now, together with you, the expectant couple or new parents, we are going to construct this chapter.
||An updated, comprehensive baby care book features information on every aspect of infant care, including the treatment of illnesses and infant nutritional requirements, and focuses on a baby's five needs: eating, sleeping, development, health, and comfort. Reprint. 60,000 first printing.
