Must-Read Pregnancy & Parenting Books

By Inhabitots

No book can ever truly prepare you for parenthood, but there are many resources that can offer vital help along the way. Sacred Pregnancy: A Loving Guide and Journal for Expectant Moms will get you off on the right track while your baby is still in your womb. This lovely book celebrates a mom-to-be and her unique journey through the pregnancy and birth experience. Getting the proper nutrition during pregnancy is crucial. Check out these three great reads on healthy eating for those precious months your baby is developing. There are also time-honored classics that should earn prime real estate on your bookcase from the moment you learn you're going to be a mom or dad. These 6 must-read books for parents-to-be cover every topic from greening your home and lifestyle to welcome baby into a nontoxic environment, and feeding your tiny tot the best foods, to invaluable information on breastfeeding. Once your baby starts solid foods, you may find that mealtime is a daunting task if you have a picky eater. HAPPYBABY: The Organic Guide to Baby's First 24 Months is a lifesaver with suggestions for finger foods, appropriate foods to feed baby depending on her age, and creative meal ideas you'll appreciate. If you're considering attachment parenting, Mayim Bialik's recently published book Beyond the Sling will help you gain insight and understanding into the philosophy.
