The ESSENTIAL guide to children under two, this book discusses everything from breastfeeding/bottle feeding with love, babywearing, sleep issues, development of a child, physical concerns such as illnesses, etc. This book is a wonderful alternative to the popular "what to expect" series which has numerous instances of medical misinformation in them. Dr Sears and his wife, an RN, have successfully raised numerous children and taught many parents in the pediatric practice.
My personal recomendation to all new mothers. This books gives many the permission to approach parenting differntly than many other philosophies. For me it gave words to my personal beliefs, and helped me find my "village."

In the past 3 years of my own child's life, it has saved us numerous trips and phone calls to the pediatrician. Their extensive knowledge of medical information with babies and children is amazing. They also provide comfort with their knowledge because they have gone through almost all of it raising their many children together.
