I'm reading one called Homebirth in the Hospital. So far it's been really good!

I haven't really read any pregnancy books I read What to Expect before I was even pregnant and that was just okay. All my pregnancy reading is coming from websites. Though, I am about to start reading a book that my sister recommends called "The Happiest Baby on the Block". She swears by this book! It's about ways to calm an upset baby.

I'm loving The Baby Book by Dr. Sears. full of great and actually useful info! he also has The Birth Book out but i have heard there is enough similar info in the baby book, and its much broader in info!

Lisa, I read the Happiest Baby book, and just for my take on it, it seems to favor scheduling feedings with a small baby. I personally think they ought to be able to eat whenever they are hungry and sleep whenever they are tired.
I tried that book out of desperation because I had an incredibly fussy son who didn't sleep through the night until he was a year old. He still wakes a couple times a night at times. I would suggest read the book, and realize that every baby is different, and that while there may be some good advice there, it may not work for your baby in particular. Not to be a wet blanket, but just my thoughts!

The happiest baby on the block. It's the perfect book for our choice in parenting style.

Thanks for the differing opinion, Joy. I figure whether I use the knowledge I gain from the book or not, it will still be good to know.

I really liked Ina Mays as well.

Birthing from Within was fabulous if you can ignore some of the fruitier "birth art" stuff. I thought it was a great read with lots of good information on natural childbirth. But I will say some of it was a bit beyond me...like the art portions. But I still think it is worth reading

I kinda felt the same about the Happiest Baby book as Joy did. And I wasn't impressed with the No-cry sleep solution either. They seemed a bit trite and like there was an "answer" to our issues. But, alas, my kids figured out the sleep thing and the adjustment thing just fine without my doing anything specific. But if the suggestions help give some direction to someone really struggling, go for it
