    Overall some good information in this book but I dont like the author's approach to solve the problems. I prefer the Sears books of parenting.

  • Practical Advice for New Parents Dec 8, 2008
    by skyprincess

    As a baby nurse myself, I sometimes find myself reading books that new parents are likely to be reading. I liked this book and have advocated some of the suggestions when talking to parents about their new baby. I like the author's approach to infant care 'E.A.S.Y.' which stands for eat, activity, sleep and yourself. This approach is slightly different than the typical hospital's, which would be more like activity, eat and sleep. I also like her realistic approach to breast feeding and setting a schedule for your baby at home. This is not a medical book but more of a book to help you ease the transition of having a new baby in your house.

    From the title of this book, I thought it would be a wonderful bed-side guide for my daughter-in-law, but after reading a few chapters I realized that rather than taking it with a grain of salt, she would need the whole salt shaker. I think this book sets up the new (or experienced) mother to feel like a failure if she tries to implement Ms. Hogg's theories and they don't work...or she can't figure them out.
    Ms. Hogg has classified babies into five categories but almost every baby I've had experience with is a compilation of those categories and does not neatly fit into just one. She also claims it is possible to distinguish from a newborn's cries what, of several causes, is bothering Baby, and I say that is hog-wash. The reason Baby is crying is more easily deduced from the facts: Baby just woke up from a 3 hour nap and nursed non-stop for 20 min. so he's probably not tired or hungry, but he hasn't been changed since before his nap and feeding, so a clean diaper is in order. I feel Ms. Hogg's philosophy is too clinical to be of use to the average new parents and can instill feelings of inadequacy to the overwhelming feelings they already are most likely experiencing.

    Did not finish reading this book due to the fact that after I started reading it I realized I have a completely different philosophy about caring for a baby and did not agree with her. I would not have applied her theory to our lives.
