This practical, first-ever parent-friendly guide to attachment parenting shows why conventional childrearing advice can be detrimental, and teaches parents to trust their instincts on matters such as:
-- Always responding attentively to baby's cries
-- Minimizing parent-child separation
-- Avoiding "sleep training" for infants
-- Breastfeeding on demand rather than on schedule
-- Avoiding, whenever possible, baby "gadgets, " including playpens, swings, walkers, and carriages.
