Or you could save yourself a slew of time and money and check out Zero to Five. Each page focuses on one specific parenting topic (how babies brains develop, calming a newborn, setting limits with a limitless toddler) in a way that is clear and easy to digest. The layout uses lots of lists and white space so you can get to the key points in just a few minutes. The book is large (don't expect to easily stuff it into a diaper bag) but the spiral-bound format means it lays flat so you could easily read a few pages while (insert: nursing, burping a baby, kid chews on toes nearby, etc.).
Parents of younger kiddos know that free-time is precious (sometimes squeezing in a quick shower is a challenge). If you're looking for practical parenting tips but don't have a lot of time to invest, this is a great resource that hits all the highlights. Oh yeah, and it's a great looking book too (photography, color, and layout are all top notch).
The content is great too! Simple / By Topic / Research Based. No offense to anyone, but the whole Organic Earth Mother vibe is thankfully absent from this - More about "what does peer reviewed research say?" And even though my child is 3, I'm still getting a lot out of it. I really appreciated the topic of praising your child: Stress the process, hard work, effort, rather than innate qualities of your child (such as 'you are so smart'.) hit home for me.
Anyway, I enjoyed this book. Even though I can't be called a connoisseur of parenting books, I actually read this one, which hopefully says a lot.
Zero to Five is my new all-time favorite. Based on science, adjusted for the real world, written in the voice of your best, most supportive friend in an accessible, well-organized format, this is the book I will be giving to new parents and keeping within reach at all times as I help raise my grandson to be the best human being he can be. Tracy Cutchlow has produced a beautiful, unintimidating book packed with practical information to coach and inspire.
