    VERY PRACTICAL

    I've found this book to be a wonderfully written and easily read book. I find myself frequently using it as a reference. The authors write in a practical and common sense manner. I highly recommend this book I've found it to be very helpful.

    If you are AP and/or plan to breastfeed for any length of time - stay away from this book.

    This book thinks babies should be weaned between 10 and 12 months (which is less than any medical organization recommends), and it has a story about a two-month-old baby who was spoiled by being held too often. This book was not what I thought it was going to be at all. I would suggest parents look to other sources.

    Every parent should read this book

    Just an outstanding, practical book that covers all areas parents of infants to toddlers are concerned about. Mostly toddler focused but made so much sense to me as I looked back on how I have seen parents uneffectivley handle these same issues. Here is advice (based on the developmental needs from birth to 3) that addresses questions like "should I let my baby cry it out?", "What should I do when my child hits or throws a temper tantrum?". It just makes sense- to treat your child with kindness and respect but yet to still be firm in your parenting. Gives great examples and tips to learn from- highly recommend every parent having it as a reference.
