About this item

The classic guide of the post-Dr. Spock generation has been revised to include the latest information on virtually every aspect of infant and baby care. THE BABY BOOK is unrivaled in its scope and authority, and presents a practical, contemporary approach to parenting that reflects the way we live today. Focusing on the essential needs of babies--eating, sleeping, development, health, and comfort--it addresses the questions of greatest concern to parents. The Searses acknowledge that there is no one way to parent a baby, and they offer the basic guidance and inspiration you need to develop the parenting style that best suits you and your child.

THE BABY BOOKis a rich and invaluable resource that will help you get the most out of parenting--for your child, for yourself, and for your entire family.

Covers many topics

Customer review by canadaMom2

5.0 stars by canadaMom2

I bought MANY parenting books and this was the only one I needed. I repeatedly recommend friends buy it. The Baby Book covers every topic I inquired about and provides balanced advice and decreases my worries over and over. Many books I read on sleep habits, breast feeding or introducing foods are"my way or the highway' leave me anxious and scared to do anything because it is likely the wrong choice. Dr. Sears promotes parents do what feels right and trust their judgment. The book covers many topics. Milestones, growth charts, feeding, bathing, potty training, discipline, health and fevers, when to see a doctor. A previous reviewer cautioned against sleeping with your baby in bed with you, I completely promote it. I brought my babies into bed with me (now ages 1 and 3) and it was easily the best choice we made as a family. Many books are against it, but I believe it was the one thing that kept me sane during the first weeks of constant wake up and it was a time of bounding I would never want to miss. (and yes... my babies transitioned to cribs with ease at about two months)

Found it to be easy reading, informative and detailed ----covering a broad range of topics. This book is honest about limitations of research and the need for parents to follow their intuition when making certain decisions. Would highly recommend to new parents as a labor-through-toddler years resource.
