Becoming the Parent you Want to Be: A Source Book of Strategies for the First Five Years

This is a wonderful resource utilizing proactive, compassionate and 'diversity' minded philosophies. To date it is my favorite resource that covers a range of issues, ideas, etc., on being and becoming a parent.

The Birth to Five Book: Confident Childrearing Right from the Start

I found this book very reassuring and helpful. The chapters are only about five pages long and each one tackles a specific topic. The writing is straightforward and conversational in tone which makes it engaging and inviting. The book has four main sections: Parenting your Infant, Parenting your Toddler, Parenting your Preschooler, and Parenting Anytime. Many important topics are covered such as child development, whether or not newborns can be spoiled, breastfeeding, reading to your baby, discipline, thumb sucking, and toilet training. There is also an appendix that focuses on child development and an appendix with a list of resources by topic. As a new parent I found this book really helpful!

The Baby Book
by William Sears and Martha Sears

The Baby Book

Nine months into parenthood, my previously pristine copy of The Baby Book is rather dogeared and tattered. I have referred to this book on countless occasions with countless questions about physical development, illness, feeding, and sleeping. As parents, and as a physician and a nurse, the Sears' provide gentle, thoughtful advice on baby care. I highly recommend this book to any parent or caretaker of babies.
