Read full description of the books:
At times I wanted to give this book five stars; at times I wanted to give it two. There is a lot of great information in this book about a wide range of parenting issues (e.g., childbirth, nighttime parenting, breastfeeding, entertainment, communication, discipline, circumcision, school, etc.). And I found a lot of it very helpful. But in some of the chapters (the chapter on vaccines, for instance) I thought the information presented was extremely one-sided, bridging on irresponsible.
And this is the thing: I am attracted to attachment parenting because it is a philosophy that encourages parents to trust their instincts and trust their children. When attachment parenting "manuals" become overly prescriptive, though, as this one does in places, I lose interest. It seems disingenuous and contradictory to tell a parent to trust their instincts, then in the next breath tell them that they are damaging their child if they do X.
Overall, though, I thought this book was a good introduction to a lot of issues (and the resource guide in the back is fantastic), and parents who read it might become interested in doing more in-depth research into the subjects presented.
