9781475185423: The Other Baby Book: A Natural Approach to Baby's First Year

What if the rules of modern motherhood were turned upside down? The Other Baby Book: A Natural Approach to Baby's First Year guides new and expecting mamas on a journey past "shoulds" and "musts," back to the heart of true joy and relationship. Motherhood has been targeted by advertisers, and bombarded by opinions masquerading as medical necessities. Massaro and Katz are helping mothers reclaim a simpler, more connected first year with their babies.

Readers will find eight fun-to-read chapters filled with baby-friendly practices, along with stories from moms in-the-know. In a soothing yet sassy voice, the authors present compelling research on topics like birth, holding your baby, breastfeeding, infant sleep, pottying babies (yes, really!), sign language, baby-led solids, and self-care for moms. The book also features contributions from leading practitioners in baby care: Dr. James McKenna, Dr. Janet Zand, Naomi Aldort, Gill Rapley, Nancy Mohrbacher, and more.

Review:

A hip, readable, accurate and supportive book...filled with common, practical, everyday wisdom that unfortunately has become almost obsolete in our medically dominated birthing and pediatrics models. It is a fantastic resource for the new mom who wants to do things a bit out of the box. --Aviva Romm, MD, Certified Professional Midwife, and author of The Natural Pregnancy Book

Megan and Miriam are like your super-savvy BFFs who have pounded the pavement gathering the latest research and practical guidelines, and written it up in a chatty, humorous yet authoritative format that will speak to NPR and TMZ fans alike. --~Marcy Axness, PhD, author of Parenting for Peace
The non-judgmental way The Other Baby Book gently...educates, empowers, and informs parents about all aspects of infant care is remarkable. I am certain that many parents and babies will greatly benefit by the perspectives offered here. --~Dr. James McKenna, Director, Mother-Baby Behavioral Sleep Laboratory, University of Notre Dame and author of Sleeping With Your Baby
