From delivery to lactation options, from sleeping habits to "einstein baby" gimmicks, you can find data supporting every possible angle of any given subject. What I really appreciated in the books I'm posting was the writing style of the authors. Open minded, accepting that different things work for different people, discussing multiple sides of every subject - all in all helpful and non-judgemental.
Without any further ado, I present the "favorite books" list
My favorite book on delivery:
The big book of birth by Erica Lyon
( I felt so reassured and relieved after reading this book that I e-mailed a thank you note to the author).
My favorite book on baby sleep:
Better Baby Sleep: A handbook for parents by Jane Stockly
My favorite book on breastfeeding:
The Breastfeeding Mother's Guide to Making More Milk by Diana West
My favorite "smart" baby book:
Brain Rules for Babies: How to raise a smart and happy child from zero to five by John Medina
My favorite infant potty training book:
ECSimplified by Andrea Olson
