I agree with Hollycrand above. I have lived in Scotland, Japan, Korea, Hawaii (not a foreign country, but in some ways like one)...we just moved to Japan again with our 3-month old son last November. This is my fifth year living here, off and on, and I love it. That said, it is a totally different experience with a baby. I feel the isolation acutely. People run up to my son and touch him because he is so exotic looking to them. I speak the language, but it is not the same...
I love the Sears' books, too, but also love Penelope Leach's Your Baby and Child from Birth to Age 5. She's AP, too, and I love her way of explaining things. I chose to bring that with me to Japan instead of Dr. Sears', since much of their philosophy is also on their website, www.askdrsears.com
