À la carte wisdom from the international bestseller Bringing up Bébé

In BRINGING UP BÉBÉ, journalist and mother Pamela Druckerman investigated a society of good sleepers, gourmet eaters, and mostly calm parents. She set out to learn how the French achieve all this, while telling the story of her own young family in Paris. 

BÉBÉ DAY BY DAY distills the lessons of BRINGING UP BÉBÉ into an easy-to-read guide for parents and caregivers. How do you teach your child patience? How do you get him to like broccoli? How do you encourage your baby to sleep through the night? How can you have a child and still have a life?

Alongside these time-tested lessons of French parenting are favorite recipes straight from the menus of the Parisian crèche and winsome drawings by acclaimed French illustrator Margaux Motin. 

Witty, pithy and brimming with common sense, BÉBÉ DAY BY DAY offers a mix of practical tips and guiding principles, to help parents find their own way.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Pamela Druckerman's 2012 Bringing Up Bébé (Penguin USA, 9781594203336) became a surprise hit with its keen expatriate observations on the wisdom of French parenting. Now this adopted Parisian shares one hundred French parenting practices that can benefit American parents. Neither fawning nor sarcastic, Bébé Day by Day offers refreshing (yet traditional) methods of bringing up your own bébé.

Publishers Weekly
Druckerman, an American expat in France, offers this purse-sized collection of Francophilic lists and snark as a follow-up to her highly successful parenting guide Bringing Up Bebe. Discussing French food rules, she maintains that French children always try everything on their plates and generally eat what adults eat (she includes several delightful recipes from French government-run daycare, including zucchini flan and artichoke soup). Her knowledge of sleep training a newborn, "The Pause," flirts with the cry-it-out method by lagging in response to a baby's cries. There are tips on living a parent-centered life and avoiding a child-centered marriage that will be well received by many who come across them. Though most will agree when Druckerman writes that new parents need a weekend away, nothing is particularly French about it. Moreover, her lists have the effect of making every point facile or glib; rarely does she provide deep analyses of her positions. The advice contained in these pages can usually be pared down to common sense or a path-of-least-resistance, although a snort or giggle here and there will be in order. This shouldn't be anyone's go-to manual on baby care, but it's fun.

    This book helped me to realize that child-training is a journey,

    This book helped me to realize that child-training is a journey, not a ten-step process. It also relieved me of my 
    guilt over using quality childcare to pursue my own interests and talents as well as creating quality "adult" time for 
    my husband and I after the kids go to bed. In other words, it changed my perspective of how I view my role as a
    parent. Pamela reaffirms your right as a mother to have a life while continuing to enjoy a close
    relationship with your children. It is a breath of fresh air in a time when most of the parenting books in the US are
     about self-denial and quick-fixes, telling you you're a failure if the methods in their book don't work for you. This
     book helps parents in very practical, specific ways to make everyone's life easier. And they work!
    Thank you Pamela!!!

    Condensed Version of Bringing Up Bebe.

    As a big fan of Druckerman's Bringing Up Bebe, I picked up her latest release the day it came out. Bebe Day by Day is a condensed/bullet point version of her previously released book. If you are looking for a continuation of the humorous anecdotal parenting nonfiction novel Bringing Up Bebe, then you will probably be disappointed. If you want an easy to digest book containing the nitty-gritty of Druckerman's observations of French parenting then this is just the thing for you. I've actually had success getting my husband to read this. I enjoyed revisiting all her nuggets of wisdom as well with a format that helped it to "stick" a little better.

    Ideas to think about!

    Loved the book and its ideas. Just gives ideas on a different way of parenting without being preachy. Wish I had the book when my children were born. Can't wait to read the sequel, which I've already purchased.
