A Great Book on Baby and Child Care
On of my favorite books on parenting and baby/child care is The New Basics written by Michel Cohen M.D.
When I was pregnant, my husband and I went to Barnes and Noble to search for books on parenting. We collected more than a dozen books and skimmed through them each. The one we both settled on (pretty quickly, in fact) was Dr. Cohen's book.
If you can think of an issue or question, Dr. Cohen has a section that answers it. The book is organized alphabetically, listing each subject and giving a quick description and parenting tips. The books includes information on discipline, breast feeding, sleeping through the night, sibings, shoes, picky eating, tantrums, sign language, and more.
Jennifer Connelly, Oscar winning actress, has this to say about the book: "Dr. Michel is wonderful at debunking myths and allyaing fears, and his straightforward manner is deeply respectful to both parents and children."
You can purchase the book in several locations or online.
