The Attachment Parenting Book Review

The Attachment Parenting Book Review
Parenting advice is in no short supply from the day you announce that you are thinking of having a baby. Attachement parenting or AP is seen as silly or even dangerous by those who believe that independence can only be taught by ignoring a baby's most basic emotional needs. Dr. William Sears' book helps parents see how attachment parenting creates independent and secure babies and children.

Dr. Sears explains the controversy and common sense surrounding co-sleeping, extended breastfeeding, and responding to cues from your baby. His explanations of how attachement parenting really works are very reassuring for new parents who are bombarded with conflicting advice. This book will inspire you with the confidence to make your own decisions about what is best for your family. No matter how well meant the advice, the decision is still yours.

Instinctive parenting is not the same thing as "spoiling" kids and letting them have anything they desire. Instinctive parenting is simply learning to understand the baby cues that can help you more fully meet your child's needs. This intuitive parenting leads to calmer, more well adjusted and emotionally balanced children. Dr. Sears walks you through the basics and helps you to make the most of this precious time to bond with your baby. With his guidance and backup, it is easier to withstand the pressure to raise your baby differently.

Dr. Sears' advice will help you feel confident in your decisions about a family bed, babywearing, positive discipline and other aspects of raising an attached baby. This parenting primer is a must read. As one mother said to me, "I love this book. I give a copy to every new parent I know as a baby shower gift." You might want to get more than one copy, as soon you'll find yourself handing them out to all the new parents you know.
