Pregnancy and Parenting Books

About a year ago, a reader asked me if I would be willing to share a list of my favourite parenting books. I said "sure" and that is when I started working on page called My Parenting Library. Last night I finally found the time to finish an initial version of it.

My Parenting Library

You can click on the link above this paragraph or find it anytime through the navigation above my header (just click on "Library"). The library includes the following types of books:

  • General Parenting Books

  • Discipline and Relationship Building Books

  • Sleep Books

  • Pregnancy and Birth Books

  • Breastfeeding, Nutrition and Health Books

  • Essays and Writings on Parenting that Inspire

  • Other Useful Parenting Books

If you do decide to buy any of those books or if you are making any other purchases from Amazon, I would appreciate you supporting me by clicking through from the links on my blog to Amazon.com (for residents of the US) or Amazon.ca (for residents of Canada).

A place that's brilliant for cataloguing your books that I think would be brilliant for your parenting library is http://www.librarything.com/" rel="nofollow">LibraryThing. With that there would be links to reviews of each book and it would be easily sortable by title, author, rating etc. :)

I'm also surprised that the Continuum Concept is missing from this list.

I love the Continuum Concept, but just never bought the book. I have found good articles and information on the web.

I remember checking out Library Thing when I first got started with this project, but it wasn't going to do everything I wanted to do. I can't remember exactly what was going to be missing, but there was something...

Well reading has always been something that has been important in my life and since it was so important to me to implement this into my new child's life, I loved http://www.dearbabybooks.com/about.htm" rel="nofollow"> Carol Casey's parenting book titled, "Dear Baby, What I love about you!" It is designed to help Parents improve the experience of reading to their babies and toddlers. I found it to be a fun and nurturing book of rhymes that tell Baby just why he or she is so lovable. Adorable book.

I'd skip the book, actually. I love the concept, but the book is full of fail: racism, the-noble-brown-savage, homophobia (blame the mother style!), etc. I did get a lot out of it, but I also spent the two days I first read it scribbling in the margins, ranting about it (rather a lot, to the extend The Man refused to read it after that), and occasionally hurling it at a wall.

I generally recommend Our Babies, Ourselves as something of a substitute, but I really wish someone would just write a modern book on the good parts of the concept without all the garbage of the original.
