Back in the day, an extended family of wise women would be around to reassure parents about weird gurgling noises, breastfeeding “latch,” and infant acne. But for most modern Americans, that wise old aunty comes in the form of a big fat baby book.
But which one? There are a lot out out there, but the 6 I’ve picked here will teach you what basic things there are to know about babies and how to keep them safe, healthy and relatively happy.
It is often said that our children do not come with “owner’s manuals” like the ones we get when we bring home a new car.
In a way, this is a good thing but where do we go when we really need answers?
The internet…Barnes and Noble…or to our cellphone to call an experienced friend or better yet the pediatrician.
If you are looking for books on parenting here are a few of the best ones out there …already reviewed and recommended.
My personal choices include these plus….The Happiest Baby on the Block and The Happiest Toddler on the Block…both by Dr.Harvey Karp.
New parents and not so new parents… this one is for you.
