I found this book to have quite a lot of good advise. I would recommend it to any parents raising babies and tots. We have it in our library and won't be parting with it until we are done with having little ones.
This book was great for our first 5 years as parents and now that my son is about to turn 5, we have the next one too. The information is practical, straight-forward and non-judgmental. This has been my favorite go-to parenting book.
