The Best Evidence Based Book on Babies!

Posted

Pros: Easy to read, great information with clear sources, makes sense!

Cons: I want to see a follow up, I`d love to have more information and i`m sure Dr. Palmer will provide in the future

I'm a first time mom also from the healthcare field, so to find a book that I feel has great substance to it is very important.

Pros: Compassionate and compelling

After meeting Dr. Palmer in person I feel a deep sense of loss in not having this resource when my baby was born. We struggled through postpartum depression and other insecurities that her work addresses. I encourage parent needing to be nurtured to include Baby Bond in their parenting library. I know I would have.   Adelaide Zindler Author, Pray it Forward in 30 Days http://www.DisarmAutism.com

Pros: very knowledgable author

I have honestly not had the opportunity to yet read this book.  But i have read her past book and given it away as gifts to new moms.  Dr. Palmer has also worked with me directly in helping me treat my son.  My son was born 2 months premature and had severe reflux and failure to thrive, especially during the first year of his life.  I was fortunate to find Dr. Palmer.  She was very personable and full of knowledge.  She greatly assisted me in figuring out ways to "feed" him and get him to increase his calories with foods that were easy for his stomach to digest.  His severe reflux made him unwilling to breastfeed directly.  But I still pumped as...

Pros: factual and not too technical, a great resource to make informed decisions

  When I started reading this book, I immediately thought “Thank you Dr. Palmer!”  As a mother of a daughter, I practiced attachment parenting not because it was something I read about, but because it was my natural instinct.  This book is a fantastic compilation of the science behind this instinct, and how varying parenting practices affect babies on a physical as well as emotional level.    I now know why my attachment parenting practices (breastfeeding, cosleeping, nurturing) was beneficial for not only my daughter, but for my own health.    For example, when I breastfed my daughter for 3 years, I’d get warnings from many people that she...
