Dr. Mom: A Guide to Baby and Child Care by Marianne NeifertCall me biased, but this book was given to me by Dr Neifert herself as I was the only breastfeeding new mom in University Hospital in Denver. The year was 1992. I was a single parent. My mom was in town to help me during labor and delivery and for a couple of weeks after my daughter was born.
As the only breastfeeding new mom in the entire hospital, Dr Neifert approached me, asking if it would be okay to bring in her med students to observe my daughters next meal, observe Dr Neifert working with me and my baby, and to ask me questions relating to post-partum care, breastfeeding, and what my plans were regarding raising a child on my own. As well, they were there to see how Dr Neifert answered any questions and concerns I may have had.
Aside from that bias, the book itself is full of fantastic information for parents: growth and development, fevers, anatomy & physiology of the baby, colic, crying, breastfeeding, diaper rash, immunizations, and just about anything you can imagine you might want to ask as a first time parent and just so happen to have a doctor in your home. Detailed, clear, and absolutely perfect for the first time parent who might be prone to occasional bouts of panic.
Neiferts knowledge and expertise in maternal and child health are truly unparalleled. Combined with her clear writing, a sense of humor, and a somewhat maternal approach, this book became my bible during the first couple years of my daughters life. The book was hauled off the shelf after my son arrived and once again proved to be a lifesaver, not just for me, but for my (at the time) husband.
What to Expect series of books are okay, but they just cant beat Dr. Mom: A Guide to Baby and Child Care. If you have family or friends who are about to be parents, do them a huge solid and get them this book! Theyll thank you for it...repeatedly!
Dr. Benjamin Spock: Child Care and Controversy
This page as pdf. I have lived in a hostel ever since I was We currently live in London since 6 months and though we were initially terrified of the prospect of having to live alone with a little baby, we have achieved the greatest thing in our lives— our baby is going to be a year old next fortnight and she is a perfect angel — very happy, active, content and smiling most of the time. We have managed this despite our total lack of experience and the absence of our parents— largely because we had complete faith in your book. I still breastfeed her and despite pressure from elders, have not given her a bottle. Hope to meet you in person some day. First-of-its kind for Indian mothers and a must-have for any expectant mother.

New parenting books seem to pop up all the time. How to do it the French way, the Tiger Mom way, the New Kid by Friday way, or how to just muddle through — the choice can be a little overwhelming. How can we know which guide will give us the answers to the questions that are most relevant to our needs, with an approach that we feel comfortable with? I came across — and read — a vast selection while writing my own parenting book, Little kids, big dilemmas: Your parenting problems solved by science — and there really does seem to be a guide for everyone. For my own contribution, I used a science-led, evidence-based approach. And while the selection for genuinely research-oriented parenting books is not particularly large, there are a few I would highly recommend.
