1. I don't see a problem with editing. There were maybe three mistakes in the whole book. That's pretty good considering this is a self published book.
2. In no way is the tone rude or disrespectful. I think some women got their feelings hurt because of statements they didn't agree with. Like, "Breastfeeding is better than formula." Scientifically it is but they don't make formula feeding moms feel bad. It's just a fact.
3. This is not a fad. A fad is something that comes and goes. Mothers raised thier children like this for thousands of years and then a fad hit where sleepless nighta became an inconvenience. They explain it better.
Now back to the book. I love that this was written. It was as if the women were reading my mind.
I had my little guy on June 28, 2012. My mom, and every other family member tried to give me advice. I listened but it didn't feel right so I followed my instincts. Since it wasn't what society portrayed as normal I kept most of my parenting ideas a secret. I co-sleep, hold my baby while napping, baby wear, breastfeed, and will never practice cry it out. This book made me feel so much better about my parenting techniques.
This is not a book to make other people feel bad. I think all parents should read it so they understand an alternative point of view. Maybe one day this will be the norm again.
I'm a mother of 3 beautiful kids. But because of the age gap with my second and third, I needed a refresher about how to properly raise and care for my baby. This book gave more things to consider, things I took for granted before or didn't give much thought of. I was also able to related different methods - how I raised my eldest versus my second - and saw the difference in behavior and development. Loved the book! Wish I read this during my first pregnancy.
