This book makes a wonderful gift for any new parent in your life, the latest revised edition of “The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding:”
I think “What Mothers Do, Especially When it Looks Like Nothing At All” is fascinating.
I think “The Baby Book” is a great resource on everything from baby acne to baby wearing to diagnosing rashes and diseases. A must-have.
If you are considering sleeping after you have the new baby, please read a few chapters of “The No Cry Sleep Solution” before you give birth. If you have the patience, try her suggestions. Many mothers find they work.
If you are considering sleeping with your partner in the biblical sense sometime after the baby is born, please enjoy these two books, by a Seattle mom and author Heidi Reykeil.
