Might you and your baby both sleep better if you shared a bed? How old is too old for breastfeeding? What is a father's role in nurturing a newborn? How does early attachment foster a child's eventual independence? Dr. Bill and Martha Sears -- the doctor-and-nurse, husband-and-wife team who coined the term "attachment parenting" -- answer these and many more questions in this practical, inspiring guide. Attachment parenting is a style of parenting that encourages a strong early attachment, and advocates parental responsiveness to babies' dependency needs. "The Attachment Parenting Book" clearly explains the six "Baby B's" that form the basis of this increasingly popular parenting style: Bonding, Breastfeeding, Babywearing, Bedding close to baby, Belief in the language value of baby's cry, Beware of baby trainers.Here's all the information you need to achieve your most important goals as a new parent: to know your child, to help your child feel right, and to enjoy parenting.

Chris JordanDuluth, GAAge: 35-44Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5August 19, 2009Chris JordanDuluth, GAAge: 35-44Gender: maleDr. Sears is a gift to every parent. His down-to-earth style, his practicality, and his common sense approach to the health of your child is better than anyone I have read. With 7 children of my own, I highly endorse all of Dr. Sears' materials. Read, learn, apply, and be rewarded by the results!
Brenda King5 Stars Out Of 5July 3, 2008Brenda KingThis well written book is exactly what I needed as a new mother. It gave me confidence in many of the maternal instincts I was feeling but didn't know if I should trust -- thanks to all the harsh "baby trainer" advice out there. Dr. Sears provides a comprehensive, common sense, and nonjudgmental look at what attachment parenting is and is not. What I found most refreshing is the compassionate attitude he encourages parents to have toward their babies. Among other things, he helps parents understand that a baby's cries are an effort to communicate, NOT to manipulate. The book is well written and supported by both scientific and antidotal evidence.
