Publisher's Summary

America's foremost baby and childcare experts, William Sears, MD, and Martha Sears, RN, 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 seven "Baby Bs" that form the basis of this popular parenting style:

  • Bonding
  • Breastfeeding
  • Babywearing
  • Belief in the language value of baby's cry
  • Bedding close to baby
  • Balance
  • 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.
