I really like the Sears books. We just had our first baby and before I was pregnant I did not know anything about the different styles of parenting. I read other books too such as the babywhisperer and Dr Spock but this book was the best. Attachment parenting suits our lifestyle and the way I want to raise our children. The book gives great insights into sleeping, feeding and baby wearing. Those were my main concerns having our first child. The book is easy to read and the authors are not biased about the other styles of parenting. Even my husband likes reading it from time to time.

I was very impressed with the Baby Book: Everything You Need to Know about Your Baby--From Birth to Age Two. I am a first time grandmother and my grandaughter was born prematurely. This book helped alleviate alot of my fears. I would definately recommend this book to all parents regardless if their child is born prematurely. Everyday I find solitude with this book.
Publishers Weekly, 2003-03-15 William and Martha Sears, a pediatrician and a registered nurse respectively, team up with two of their doctor sons to update their 1993 guide to "attachment parenting." Advocating a "high-touch style of parenting to balance the high-tech life of the new millennium," the authors teach new parents how to bond with their babies through seven fundamental behaviors, including breastfeeding, "babywearing" and setting proper boundaries. When parents keep close to their babies by bringing them into bed at night and picking them up when they cry, the infants develop better, the authors argue; rather than becoming spoiled, they become more healthy and independent. From tips for a healthy birth, getting your baby to sleep and feeding him the "right fats," to information about early health concerns, the major steps in infant development and troublesome but typical toddler behavior, the authors of this comprehensive volume (who share their own parenting experiences along the way) are assured and reassuring experts.
