Libro molto ben scritto, pratico, non noioso, con immagini e molto completo. Tra i mille libri in commercio sull'argomento, è il mio preferito. Ha tanti spunti e suggerimenti che non sapevo, e mi ha preparata tantissimo all'arrivo del mio primo figlio.

4.0 su 5 stelle Very good book - did not find it to be "AP all the way or nothing" 2 gennaio 2012
Di WhippetMom - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I'm a working mother of a 2-month-old baby girl, our first child, preparing to return to work. I hesitated in buying this book because (1) I was dubious about Attachment Parenting (AP) and its merits and (2) there were so many negative reviews stating that the book is a major guilt trip for anyone who can't or won't follow the Sears's suggestions to the letter.

I absolutely did not find this book to be an attachment parenting manifesto. In fact, I was pleasantly surprised that many of the tenants of the AP movement are in line with my (desired) parenting style rather than some sort of granola/coffee shop socialist/impossible to execute approach to life with a child. The Sears give suggestions for all different scenarios, AP or not. For example, while they do state many times that breast feeding is best, they also give plenty of information about a safe and loving way to bottle feed if you can't or won't breastfeed. Other reviewers said that the book makes them feel that if they're not breastfeeding, sharing the bed, quitting their jobs, and wearing their baby everywhere (including to the bathroom), that they are horrible parents. I did not feel that way at all. The Sears provide different ways of handling feeding, sleeping, and so on, and encourage you to make your own choice. I have done some things that they have suggested, and some not. I breastfeed and waited 2 months before bottle feeding expressed milk. I've tried baby wearing, but I have one of those rare babies who doesn't like to be held a lot who screams her head off when I put her in a sling. So she spends a lot of time in her bouncy seat wherever I am, instead of on me. I did not quit my job, and she will be going into daycare soon. She does not sleep in our bed, as I am terrified of smothering her, and because I need some sleep myself. So she sleeps in a bassinet next to our bed and we're able to attend to her immediately. The Sears were pretty clear about being anti-pacifier and because of that we instructed the hospital not to give her one under any circumstance. After spending several consecutive hours with our fingers/thumbs in her mouth (and I couldn't put her to the breast for hours because of cracked and bleeding nipples), our resolve crumbled and we gave her a pacifier...then ran to the store to buy several more. But I didn't feel the need to throw away the book once we "went against" it.

I took the advice of another reviewer and combined this book with Penelope Leach's Your Baby and Child and have found both to be valuable resources.

The Sears' overall message (as well as Penelope Leach's) is that you need to be open-minded as a parent, and do what works best for your baby, for you, and your lifestyle. It will be next to impossible to find something that parrots back to you everything you think you should be doing--or want to be doing. Parenting is hard, and it is a learning experience. This book is a good guide (not instruction manual) through that process.

5.0 su 5 stelle I love this book!!! 22 marzo 2014
Di E. Sato - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I used this book with my first child, then bought the ebook (not a Kindle, so I won't say!), then gave my hard copy to a friend. I then found another copy at the library bargain book sale and bought it for a friend who is pregnant. It's sooooo thorough. I love the Sears' philosophy. Parents should be loving, and do what works for them! But to get an idea of what people go through for their kids -- it's NOT ALWAYS EASY, but you don't become a parent to have an easy life, and you now have a little human who needs you. I think they give a really accurate picture of some of the time and energy it takes, but it will pay off when your child is independent, respectful, and loving. Don't short change your child later by taking shortcuts when they're babies. Yes, you will be sleep-deprived, scared of rolling over on your baby, and maybe people will look at you weird for sleeping with your baby or for nursing your toddler. But do what works for you, and, as they say in the book, say "My doctor says to do it" because Doctor Sears said so! I have no regrets -- nursed my oldest till he was two, shared our bed with him, and now we are doing the same with our second baby. Our oldest is just five and doing so well, so independent and caring!

3.0 su 5 stelle Good for reference, take the attachment advice with salt... 7 aprile 2011
Di Tsu - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I ordered this book toward the end of my pregnancy, after a friend recommended it to me...I had been more focused on planning for the birth and realized I had only one parenting book, so I didn't have time to do more research into what kind of book might be best suited for me. I had vaguely heard of attachment parenting in my childbirth class, but didn't necessarily plan on practicing any of it except for breastfeeding (to which I was 110 percent committed), and possibly baby-wearing (sounded interesting, the reported benefits made sense). I liked that it was over 700 pages, and was sure it would be comprehensive and full of great advice. I had no time to read it before my birth, it actually arrived a few days after my daughter was born.

It freaked me out in the early days so much that after a few weeks, I hated it and couldn't read it anymore. I agree with the review titled "the guilt trip book," it's totally how the book made me feel at that time! Over the course of the early months, I also read "What to Expect the First Year," given to me by a relative. I liked getting the Sears' perspective, then contrasting it with what was in "What to Expect," which delivered some of the same information, without advocating attachment parenting. I disagreed with some of the suggestions and approaches in that book too, which went too far in the opposite direction...so after the newborn stage was over, I could read the Baby Book with a new purpose, not of finding answers, but just of educating myself in the general sense, taking what I liked from it, and ignoring what I didn't like.

I agree that Dr. Sears DOES advocate getting to know your baby and doing whatever works best for *your* family, however, I think that message can get lost in the sometimes repetitive promotion of attachment parenting techniques. For example, baby wearing--I wanted to do it, but my daughter ended up being a very active baby, and was actually happier just playing by herself on the floor. She squirmed and cried to get out when I put her in the Moby wrap. Co-sleeping--my daughter slept just fine naturally on her own in her crib from about six weeks on, without my husband and I doing any kind of sleep training or "cry it out" (just lucky, I guess!) and my husband and I slept fine in our bed, using the baby monitor.

For me, the Baby Book is good to have around the house for reference, but I don't necessarily use it for advice.

5.0 su 5 stelle Reads like an instruction manual 28 febbraio 2011
Di Elizabeth - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
After reading the reviews on Amazon, I was very hesitant to purchase this book. As a first time mom, I had heard of Dr. Sears and felt that the whole Attachment Parenting movement was not for me and my family and I didn't want to have to read through a whole book that pushed AP on me when it wasn't what I wanted. Despite this hesitation, I bought the book and immediately fell in love!

I was searching for a book about infant and baby CARE. Sleeping, feeding, bathing, teething, development, milestones, etc. I loved the pregnancy books that talked about each week's development and such, and wanted a book that did the same for the first year or so of my baby's life. This book has very detailed sections about things like genital care, rashes, jaundice, thrush, when/how to bathe, cradle cap, weight gain, how much to feed (bottle and breast), and so much more. There is a big section on sleeping in which he explains the baby sleep cycles and talks about the real "hows and whys" of infant sleep, rather than just telling you what to do. Yes, he advocates for co-sleeping, but that does not mean you have to do that. I think the information he gives about sleeping is invaluable, and if you don't like his co-sleeping message, you can ignore it (as I intend to do with his "throw a mattress on your bedroom floor" idea when your 6 year old doesn't want to sleep in his own bedroom)! Same goes for breastfeeding and baby wearing - he advocates for those, but I don't feel like he is condescending about it. The message I got was more like, "Do what works for you and your family".

My daughter is now 5 months old and I am loving the section on starting solids. Again, he discusses in detail the "when where what why and how" of solid feeding. He suggests (of course) to make your own baby food, but you don't have to!

There is a pretty large section on milestones as well. Each month I go through and read about what kinds of things my daughter will be doing in the coming weeks. I feel like this book educated me enough to understand my baby more, and realize her needs.

Overall, the book read like an instruction manual. When my daughter started having gas, I flipped open to that section and found a great baby massage that helped relieve gas. I'm telling you, there's something in this book about pretty much every baby question you might have. Great purchase!

4.0 su 5 stelle Overall a good book. 5 novembre 2012
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
I enjoy this book for the most part, because I had already been putting most of its philosophies to practice. I babywear, exclusively breastfeed, and co-sleep. I attachment parent. And it has worked for my particular baby so far.. he is now an exceptionally happy and smart 6-month-old. I just don't think a book based on one parenting philosophy should be pompously named "THE Baby Book." While I do agree with most AP philosophy, it has always bothered me that they can get a little elitist. This parenting style works for some people and not others.. I just think something named "The Baby Book" as though it is the guide to EVERYTHING baby, should cover all options. With that being said, I think it's a handy book to have for me personally, but probably will just make parents who don't AP feel guilty. (If you deeply care about your child & are doing what you feel is best for them, you're doing it right in my opinion.)
