Okay, but duplicate material from Sears' The Baby Book

A good concise book, but you can find most of the same material in the Attachment Parenting chapter in Sears' The Baby Book, a much more comprehensive book of the same price.

Wish I would have gotten this BEFORE having the baby

This book was GREAT! I wish I would have purchased this before having the baby. Instead I purchased it 3 months after having the baby after I had read a lot of other nonsense from other "experts". This book really made a lot of sense in that it treats having a baby/child more like a LIFESTYLE (which having children is a change in lifestyle). The other books I read seemed to be treating the baby like a nuisance or inconvenience rather than a human life. This book really helped me to relax and get away from the idea of schedule or routine with the baby and go more with the flow of treating the baby like a person with her own needs rather than a dog to train to be on a schedule.

I wish all new parents-to-be would read this book

I have just one thing to say. I wish all mainstream parents out there would read this book if for nothing else than to learn that there *are* other parenting tools and methods out there other than yelling and letting kids cry themselves to sleep and "sleep training". There are gentler, more respectful ways to parent and theis books touches on them all. Love it.

THE Attachment Parenting resource

I found The Attachment Parenting Book by Dr. and Martha Sears to be an outstanding resource, both for myself and for the "grandparents", who are a little critical of our parenting style! The tone is not at all judgemental, so that you feel comfortable taking the ideas that you like and leaving those who don't work for you, even though a convincing case is made, in my opinion, for breastfeeding, babywearing, sleep sharing and responding to baby's cries. Clearly and concisely written, this book is a must-read for all new parents, especially those interested in attachment parenting.
