Overview

The Baby Book covers every aspect of infant care - from newborn bonding to toliet training. William Sears, M.D., and Martha Sears, R.N., pediatric specialists and parents of eight children, write clearly and authoritatively from their vast professional and personal experience.

  • Parent-infant attachment
  • Feeding baby right
  • Soothing the fussy baby
  • Getting baby to sleep
  • Reducing the risk of SIDS
  • Understanding baby's development
  • Common illnesses
  • Dealing with temper tantrums
  • Toliet training

The Baby Book - the new parenting bible of the 90s - presents a parenting philosophy that takes into account contemporary attitudes and realities. The Searses call this parenting style "attachment parenting" and expalin how it assures each child the attention he or she needs and nurtures the growth of the entire family as well. Their recommendations and advice will help parents develop strong bonds with their children - ultimately making better babies and better families.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
A pediatrician and an RN/childbirth educator have prepared a comprehensive guide for new parents. The authors encourage and describe ``attachment parenting,'' a high-touch style that involves bonding, reading and responding to babies' cues, breastfeeding, and sharing the bed. Topics discussed range from birth and feeding to child safety and basic medical care. The discussion of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome includes 1992 research results and recommendations. This is the first title to discuss high-touch/attachment parenting in such detail, although Fitzhugh Dodson and Ann Alexander's Your Child: Birth to Age 6 ( LJ 11/1/86) covers many of the same topics. Because of its size and the need to refer to it frequently, the book would probably be most useful in parents' personal libraries. Recommended for public libraries and patient education collections.-- Mary J. Jarvis, Methodist Hosp. Medical Lib., Lubbock, Tex.
