Review

"Most new parents quickly realize their brand new infant does not come with an instruction manual or directions of any kind. Adorable and cute, yes, but a bit complex at best, and a source of frustration for moms and dads who are desperate to learn the ropes. Enter [...] parenting consultant and South Jersey native Blythe Lipman."
—Courier Post

"From tantrums and potty training to biting and bedtime, author and parenting expert Blythe Lipman has toddlerhood issues covered."
Jewish News

Central Minnesota Mom

Format: Paperback
The 411 by Maria:

It is true there is no instructions with those little people running around your house but at least there is this book.

Blythe Lipman has some easy and tried and true suggestions for first time parents of interesting, entertaining and sometimes stressful toddler stage.

This is like having an experienced best friend, parent, counselor in your back pocket at all times. As parents we don't always have the answer and when we are knee deep in the toddler years, sometimes seeing things clearly don't come naturally. It is when we have moved past it that we can see more clearly.

There are suggestions on breaking the Beloved Binky habit, handling behavior problems, separation anxiety (my kids never had it but I did), preparing the toddler to suddenly have to share you with the birth of a sibling and more.

My favorite part of the book was how Blythe reminds us to keep the magic alive in our relationship with each other as parents. It is something that can sometimes take a back seat while raising kids but the reminder is much appreciate and she has some simply ideas to help you manage this with things like "good morning hugs" and giving compliments. Easy Peasy, lemon squeezy kinda stuff but as someone who has moved past this stage, things that are equally as important as raising those toddlers.

Format: Paperback
This is a terrific book for moms who are frazzled because their toddler seems to have decided he/she is in control and wants to do everything now, no matter what mom says. Toddler won't go to sleep? You'll find lots of tips to send him off to dreamland here. How about those wonderful social graces they pick up from somewhere, like picking their nose or even worse? Yep, there are several proven ways to train for good behavior here. And have you experienced the joys of potty training yet? You should have this book before you ever start that ordeal -- your life will be a whole lot easier, I promise. Then there is preschool -- trauma for mom and toddler, and a lot worse if you pick the wrong preschool. Having taken care of over a thousand babies and toddlers in preschools in her career, Blythe knows exactly what you should be looking for, and the hidden danger signs of a preschool that should send you running, not trusting them with your precious little one. These extensive tips alone are worth so much for your peace of mind. I give this simple and easy-to-use book my highest recommendation as a psychologist.

My daughter is now 45 so I don't need a book about toddlers especially since she doesn't plan on having a child. But oh how I wish I had this book years ago. It would have eased my concerns and answered my questions about a lot of things I knew nothing about. I didn't have this great resource then but you can now. If you, or someone you know, has a toddler, or will be having a baby soon, this is a must-have book.

I bought this book because I met Blythe recently, and I wanted to see a sample of her work. My son was born in 1978, so my toddler parenting days are long past. My only question is: WHERE WAS THIS BOOK IN 1980 WHEN I NEEDED IT? As a technology professional, my work largely consists of interacting with large databases. This book is a large database put to prose. Each of its nuggets, tidbits and asides should be put in a database and indexed. Then tech-savvy parents could search for the nugget that best applies to a given situation and save precious seconds. With a toddler, seconds count! I am amazed to remember I got through the toddler years without such a valuable resource, yet no blood was ever shed! Blythe's book would have been very helpful. If you have a toddler or a grand-toddler, or you may some day come into contact with a dreaded toddler, you need this book! It is that good. End of story.

I find "Help! My Toddler Came Without Instructions" to be the ideal book to give to my niece who has a 19 month old baby girl. Not only is the book easy to read but the vast array of comments, tips, and practical suggestions for raising a toddler make this an awesome book. Blythe, with her depth of experience and background presents to the parent, unique and practical observations such as the fact that toddler ears are shaped differently than those of adults, requiring special care to avoid ear infections. And how about those special recipes for toddlers, "circus pudding" for example. It just goes on and on packed with practical fascination from cover to cover.

You might as well clear your book shelf of all books pertaining to baby care and replace them with Blythe Lipman's two book series, Help My Baby Came Without Instructions and now the amazing Help! My Toddler Came Without Instructions. I love the fact that these books are so easy to read and filled with helpful tips on how to take care of your baby and toddler. I would have given anything to have had these books when my first child was born...it would have meant less middle of the night phone calls to my mom. Don't hesitate to buy this book now, you will be so happy you did.
