When Mayim Bialik got pregnant, she did what most women in her position do—she read a lot of books and talked with other moms. Through her studies, she became a proponent of Attachment Parenting—a philosophy which espouses co-sleeping, baby wearing, extended nursing, and natural birth—which helped her forge a wonderful relationship with her two sons.
In Beyond the Sling, Bialik takes readers through the main stages of becoming a parent with chapters delineating the fundamental needs of a child: a smooth birth, sustenance, holding, nighttime parenting, and elimination needs. She then describes things our children may not need but popular culture has convinced us that we do: too much “stuff,” unnecessary medical interventions, premature emphasis on academics, punishment as a form of discipline, and forced independence.
Bialik’s honest and relatable perspective, her abundant anecdotal evidence, and her impressive research into child development and human attachment combine for a relatable portrait of a family learning to co-exist peacefully and lovingly. Beyond the Sling will inspire readers to trust their instincts and gain the confidence and know-how to be the best moms and dads they can.
