about

America's foremost baby and childcare experts, William Sears M.D. and Martha Sears, R.N., explain the benefits--to both you and your child--of connecting with your baby early.

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 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.
William Sears, M.D., and Martha Sears, R.N., are the pediatrics experts to whom American parents turn for advice and information on all aspects of pregnancy, birth, childcare, and family nutrition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I was curious to learn more about Attachment Parenting (AP) after recognizing from many AP articles online that I was using many of the tools mentioned in this book such as baby-wearing, co-sleeping and so on. After being warned against this style of parenting, I was pleasantly surprised when I read this book to find that AP is not an all-or-nothing parenting philosophy. In fact, the authors go out of the way to make it clear that many of the tools discussed in the book are simply suggestions to try with your baby. I am glad that I bought this book because it helped me understand why so many of the AP tools that I was using everyday with my baby were helping me to bond more with my baby. This book was reassuring to read on many nights when I thought I wouldn't make it through my baby's restlessness. It inspired me to keep trying and to get to know my baby more as a way to help him. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to any mom's that are curious about AP.
