The Baby Bond
Meticulously researched and warmly presented, the most authoritative and persuasive guide to attachment parenting When it comes to early parenting, scientific evidence points time and again to the bond between parent and child as a critical factor in a baby's health and wellbeing. Backed by more than 1,200 trusted sources, this breakthrough guide reveals the many little-known advantages that only a responsive, nurturing parenting style can provide: Surprising evidence on the benefits of breastfeeding How attentiveness and touch impacts permanent brain development in infants Under-reported facts about how to reduce colic, food allergies, and illness Why sharing sleep is both safe and natural How to reduce future teen-year stress by bonding with your young child early At the forefront of a passionate, growing movement called "attachment parenting," this warmly presented guide is a rare overview of information too often missing from parenting circles, pediatric offices, and financially motivated product promotions. Why Attachment Parenting? Cultures around the world that practice more natural forms of parenting have healthier infants who cry much less, toddlers who do not exhibit "terrible twos," generally respectful teenagers, and independent adults who participate in family matters. A well-controlled study found sleeping outside of the parents' room brought 10.5 times the risk of SIDS as sleeping in the parents' room. Studies have shown that infants who receive frequent physical affection have lower overall levels of stress. In the United States and other industrialized countries, the infant death rate for formula-fed infants is twice that of exclusively breastfed babies. — Excerpt from The Baby Bond — Most would agree that children probably do not consciously remember the way they were treated during early infancy. Many recount this observation as support or comfort for their ideas about ignoring babies' cries for attention and providing minimal stimulation. Yet, it can be shown that while the specifics may be lost, unconscious memories are developed on the neurological and biochemical level from birth—a baby's brain develops from day one according to its environment. Childhood, adolescence, and adulthood are all affected by this early programming. And, as far as the coveted independence goes, it has been shown that those who receive the most affection early on display the highest levels of independence as adults. —Praise for The Baby Bond — "Babies would tell you to buy this book!" Jan Hunt, MSc | Author of The Natural Child: Parenting from the Heart "An instant classic. A must-read for all parents. Dr. Palmer's book is the best book on the hard science behind attachment parenting that I've ever read. I wish I had read this book before I became a mother." Katie Allison | Author of Attachment Parenting "Well researched and hard hitting…unabashedly tells the truth about so many very important issues." Denise Pickett-Bernard, PhD | RD, The Journal of Human Lactation

Ethnographies of Breastfeeding
Breastfeeding is an intimate and deeply rooted bodily practice, as well as a highly controversial sociocultural process which invokes strong reactions from advocates and opponents. Touching on a wide range of issues such as reproduction, sexuality, power and resources, and maternal and infant health, the controversies and cultural complexities underlying breastfeeding are immense. Ethnographies of Breastfeeding features the latest research on the topic. Some of the leading scholars in the field explore variations in breastfeeding practices from around the world. Based on empirical work in areas such as Brazil, West Africa, Darfur, Ireland, Italy, France, the UK and the US, they examine the cross-cultural challenges facing mothers feeding their infants. Reframing the traditional nature/culture debate, the book moves beyond existing approaches to consider themes such as surrogacy, the risk of milk banks, mother-to-mother sharing networks facilitated by social media, and the increasing bio-medicalization of breast milk, which is leading its transformation from process to product. A highly important contribution to global debates on breast milk and breastfeeding.

Is My Baby Allergic To My Milk
Does your breastfed baby have colic, reflex, or eczema? Perhaps your child has protein intolerance and that simply changing your diet might relieve his symptoms. This book is the result of my own research to try to better understand colic, reflux and eczema in breastfed babies. Having had two children with one or more of these problems, I was informed they might temporarily suffer from protein intolerance. After realizing how frequent this problem is, and having suffered from lack of information available to parents, I decided to offer parents my solutions and the results of my own research. I am neither a dietician, nor a paediatrician but rather a mom to two children, a university professor of clinical psychology, and a mental health researcher who has decided to use her skills in finding solutions to alleviate pain and distress, in this case in mothers and young babies. I decided to breastfeed my children for various reasons: I loved the closeness and bonding it brings, and it just seemed to me the most natural thing in the world. Knowing the benefits that breast milk offers, namely in transmitting antibodies and offering all the necessary nutrients and vitamins, I never once considered giving formula and always intended to breastfeed – even if it meant some sacrifices. And the last but not least reason is the practicality of it: never having to carry bottles, water or formula, always being able to supply to my babies’ needs, and for many breastfed babies, not needing to use pacifiers or soothers and later having trouble getting rid of them. This book explains what protein intolerance is and what can be done about it. Understanding protein intolerance sheds some light on problems such as colic, reflux and eczema in infants. It also helps us understand the difference between allergies and intolerance, and mostly it can give mothers tools to help alleviate their babies’ symptoms and perhaps avoid bigger problems later on. I don’t have all the answers and not all colic, eczema and reflux can be explained by protein intolerance. This book is meant as a guide, offering as much information as I could find-- including my own experience with my children-- on protein intolerance, the psychology of caring for a baby in pain, with the addition of a recipe book. The latter part is included because it can become exasperating to not know what to eat, to wonder how to adapt recipes or even what to order when eating out when breastfeeding a protein intolerant baby. The recipes were chosen for their taste of course, but also for their ease of preparation given that mothers of infants rarely have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen (even less when they have more than one child to feed). I hope you find this book helpful!

The Baby Bonding Book for Dads
Many new dads have never even held a baby, or they have little or no experience in taking care of babies. Men can feel apprehensive and unsure about how to interact with their offspring, especially when that offspring is a tiny little bundle that weights under ten pounds! That apprehension, though, shouldn't put men into the back seat of parenting, as that would be taking a step back from one of the most important experiences of life. Men need to take the initiative and create their own ways of bonding with their children, right from the beginning. Bonding with a baby or toddler is about the small moments that you spend together, looking at each other, talking, taking baths and walks, and playing. It's not something that happens instantly; instead, it's a relationship that grows over time. The Baby Bonding Book for Dads is about practical, everyday things that fathers can do to enjoy being with their children and forging the bond between them. Topics include newborn bonding, carrying, skin-to-skin contact, diapering, going places, napping, playing, exercising, and reading to baby. The instructive yet lighthearted text is delivered from a dad who has been there (Properzio is the father of three), and is paired with the delightful photography of Christopher Briscoe, making this book a handy guide and a perfect gift for any new father who's feeling a little nervous about the new responsibility in his life.
