Frances sent us an email:"My friend is having her first baby and has told us all that since she'll be getting all her baby gear and clothes from her sisters (as hand-me-downs) all she really wants is a good library of baby books she can read.
Oh wise Ohdeedoh readers and editors, what books do you recommend for her parenting library?"
Good question, Frances!
When our son was an infant, there were two books we were constantly reading: Baby Matters - What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Caring for Your Baby by Linda F. Palmer and The Baby Book by Dr. Sears.
Each book gives you tons of information that you always find yourself going back to. The Baby Book, focuses on attachment parenting issues, treating common illnesses, toilet training, breast feeding and more and gives you actual science on the benefits of attachment parenting with information on vaccines, circumcision and sleep.
What other books should Frances buy? What are your recommendations?
