    Thank you to Brian Leaf for sharing this excerpt of his book, Misadventures of a Parenting Yogi. Parenting precepts scare me. I'm Jewish and from New Jersey, so I'm prone to worry.

    I wrote a post once titled "10 Things You Don't Need For A New Baby." It inspired hatred and laughter (not from the same people) and I am sure that this will be no different. There is a possibility that at the ripe age of 34, with four children trailing after me and a still vibrant desire for a...

    Sleep. Every newborn needs it, and new moms don't seem to be getting enough of it. Skin-to-skin contact, breastfeeding and babywearing are a huge part of calming, bonding and closeness in the early days with a new baby, and swaddling is another way to calm babies, which might help new parents...

      There's so much we don't tell new mothers. As with all transitions, our culture presents a skewed image of motherhood which falls into two diametrically opposed categories.

    Since the baby almost always sleeps with us and usually naps on the big bed, I keep wondering if we should dismantle the crib in the corner of our room. Mostly it stands empty. Sometimes I pile it with clean laundry I haven't had a chance to fold. We bought the crib eleven years ago when...
