The reason I am giving it four stars instead of five is because everything is presented from the perspective of Attachment Parenting, which is what the Sears family is known for. However, I found some of their suggestions to be unrealistic. For example, they place a strong focus on breasfeeding, which is great, but my preemie never figured out how to breastfeed, and the suggestions they give for maintaining a supply while pumping are a joke. (The Breastfeeding Mother's Guide to Making More Milk is much, much better.) Also, they talk a lot about babywearing, but my preemie was prone to apnea spells and tucked his chin for a long time, so I didn't feel safe wearing him until he had better head control. Based on things the neonatologist and nurses said, I know my preemie is not unique in these respects, so I felt a bit left out by some of the suggestions made in this book.
All in all, this book is definitely worth a read and will help you get a better idea of what's going on during your baby's hospital stay. They also give lots of helpful tips for making the stay a little less difficult. If your baby has already gone home, though, or is close to being discharged, then I would suggest skipping this one.
I found this book to be the most postive and reassuring. I was scared out of my mind, and many of the other books only gave worst case scenarios, whereas this book always gave the best possible outlook and postive ways to deal with things.
My baby is now 16 months old (14 months corrected age) and doing fine :-)and I am a BIG believer in Dr. Sears.
