Description



About the Book



"Attachment Parenting" encourages early, strong, and sustained attention to the new baby's needs, this practical and inspirational book outlines the steps that will create the most lasting bonds between parents and their children.



Book Synopsis



From the bestselling authors of The Baby Book, William Sears M.D. and Martha Sears, R.N. explain the benefits -- for both you and your child -- of connecting with your baby early.

Would 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 Sears, "the man who remade motherhood" (TIME), 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.
