Here are a few websites/books that have helped me with baby thus far.
The Nursing Mother’s Companion – canonical text all moms-to-be should read.
The American Academy of Pediatrics New Mother’s Guide to Breastfeeding – I read an older version, but this book was helpful too.
Kelly Mom – best online resource for breastfeeding
Dr. Jack Newman – another great online resource
Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child – long but informative.
On Becoming Baby Wise: Giving Your Infant the GIFT of Nighttime Sleep – controversial in some arenas but we loosely follow Babywise and E has been sleeping well and following a flexible schedule (most of the time). Babywise has worked well for some of my friends.
Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect, and Communicate with Your Baby – Tracy Hogg’s EASY plan is very similar to Babywise. Reading both Babywise and this book has helped me pick and choose what is best for E.
Baby 411 – This book provides short and clear explanations to problems encountered in baby’s first year. It also provides summaries to different parenting strategies and tips.
Ask Dr. Sears – online resource for all things baby
The Diaper Free Baby – we are hoping to practice Elimination Communication with E so this book was a helpful resource.
The Baby-Led Weaning Cookbook – we are hoping to practice baby-led weaning and this cookbook has a helpful summary of the practice and suggested recipes.
