Congratulations with newborn! Like many new parents, you might not have a clear idea of what parenthood will be like. Here are some parenting books we recommend to navigate your new life!
«Baby Love: Everything You Need to Know about Your Baby’s First Year» by Robin Barker
A special guide, that tells new parents exactly what they need to know.
Here you will find great parenting tips and everything you need to do step by step – from newborn to 3 months, 3 to 6 months, 6 to 9 up to 12 months.
The guide walks you through baby sleep, feeding, bad habits, routines, breastfeeding and every other thing you can imagine about the first year.
Book quote: “Can you arrange help with the housework? Can you pay someone for a while? What about asking one of your relatives who keeps burbling on about ‘wind’ to do the shopping or the dishes or something practical instead? Can you put in some earphones and let your baby cry while you clean up? You will feel much better, and chances are your baby is going to cry anyway whether you walk the floor with her or clean the house. If you can restore order you will feel better, more in control and she may go to sleep.”
«Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child» by Marc Weissbluth
You can help your baby sleep through the night! This book offer you technique, that’ll improve children’s sleeping habits from their days as a newborn through their adolescent years.
Book quote: “Remember, sleep training means starting to respect your baby’s need to sleep when he is a newborn by anticipating when he will need to sleep (within one to two hours of wakefulness), learning to recognize drowsy signs, and developing a bedtime routine. Then your baby will not become overtired.”
«The Happiest Baby on the Block» by Harvey MD Karp
One more book to solve your baby’s sleeping problems! It touches on a number of baby-related concerns and uses the famous 5 S’s and Cuddle Cure to help parents master the fine art of infant sleep.
Book quote: “To decide if your infant no longer needs to be wrapped, try this: After she reaches two to three months of age, swaddle her with one arm out. If she gets fussier, she’s telling you to continue wrapping for a few more weeks. However, if she stays happy without the swaddling, she doesn’t need it anymore.”
«What to Expect the First Year» by Heidi Murkoff
The world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated.
Book quote: “Most experts agree that speaking two languages to your baby from the start allows your little one to “acquire” a second language along with the first as opposed to merely “learning” it, as would be the case if it were introduced later. That’s a powerful distinction, since it’s the difference between being a native speaker in two languages and merely being fluent in a second language.”
«Brain Rules for Baby» by John Medina
This parenting book is based on research and bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. You will view your children in a whole new light!
Book quote: “Parents face many issues on a daily basis in the raising of kids, but not all of them affect how their children turn out. There is one that does. How you deal with the emotional lives of your children—your ability to detect, react to, promote, and provide instruction about emotional regulation—has the greatest predictive power over your baby’s future happiness.”
