My favorite books on Mothering thus far...

A Listmania! list by Stephanie (New York, New York USA)
 
The Continuum Concept: In Search Of Happiness Lost (Classics in Human Development)
1.  The Continuum Concept: In Search Of Happiness Lost (Classics in Human Development) by Jean Liedloff
The list author says:
  "Fascinating look into childrearing as untouched by civilization... human development via evolution.  Worth consideration.  At the very least will give others the strength to parent more according to their inner promptings than by society's supposed dictates."
$11.43   Used & New from: $0.94
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (168 customer reviews)

Ina May's Guide to Childbirth
2.  Ina May's Guide to Childbirth by Ina May Gaskin
The list author says:
  "Essential reading during pregnancy!!!  So important in preparing for childbirth.  I credit Ina May and the stories of so many women in giving me the mental strength to do natural childbirth, even though I decided on a hospital setting with a physician instead of a birth center or homebirth with a midwife."
$12.72   Used & New from: $1.00
4.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (966 customer reviews)

Spiritual Midwifery
3.  Spiritual Midwifery by Ina May Gaskin

  "So helpful to read stories of woman after woman who delivered without any medications."
$14.68   Used & New from: $9.76
4.8 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (151 customer reviews)

Birthing from Within: An Extra-Ordinary Guide to Childbirth Preparation
4.  Birthing from Within: An Extra-Ordinary Guide to Childbirth Preparation by Pam England
The list author says:
  "I wasn't as open to the early artwork chapters but found later sections poignantly pertinent in mentally preparing me for natural childbirth."
$14.68   Used & New from: $1.81
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (288 customer reviews)

Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding
5.  Ina May's Guide to Breastfeeding by Ina May Gaskin
The list author says:
  "It's not quite as complete as The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, but I read this in the early days and weeks of breastfeeding."
$14.03   Used & New from: $8.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (87 customer reviews)

The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding
6.  The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding by Teresa Pitman
The list author says:
  "Wonderfully complete reference on the entire breastfeeding experience.  Even has sections on sleep, solids, and parenting in general."
$12.55   Used & New from: $3.99
4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (472 customer reviews) | 4 customer discussions

The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night
7.  The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night by Elizabeth Pantley
The list author says:
  "Many comforting suggestions."
$11.18   Used & New from: $0.01
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (1,429 customer reviews)

Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems: New, Revised, and Expanded Edition
8.  Solve Your Child's Sleep Problems: New, Revised, and Expanded Edition by Richard Ferber
The list author says:
  "Ferber has been misunderstood.  I did not do the progressive waiting while crying in the end but found the REST of this book very helpful in terms of understanding the effect of light exposure on sleep-wake cycles, routines, and to only put a baby to bed when actually tired!  Even discusses co-sleeping."
$11.19   Used & New from: $0.01
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (456 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

Positive Discipline: The First Three Years: From Infant to Toddler--Laying the Foundation for Raising a Capable, Confident Child (Positive Discipline Library)
9.  Positive Discipline: The First Three Years: From Infant to Toddler--Laying the Foundation for Raising a Capable, Confident Child (Positive Discipline Library) by Jane Nelsen Ed.D.
The list author says:
  "Simple and repetitive but quietly revolutionary, I think.  I wish these concepts existed when I was growing up."
$13.13   Used & New from: $0.31
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (61 customer reviews)

Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods - and Helping Your Baby to Grow Up a Happy and Confident Eater
10.  Baby-Led Weaning: The Essential Guide to Introducing Solid Foods - and Helping Your Baby to Grow Up a Happy and Confident Eater by Gill Rapley
The list author says:
  "Wish I had read this earlier than I did!  Starting the baby-led approach made all the difference for my independent child who didn't love being spoon-fed and ate very little for the first few months of solids. 
The early chapters on development make so much sense and resonate with anyone who nurses on-demand as baby's earliest diet."
$8.44   Used & New from: $4.37
4.3 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (181 customer reviews)
