“I predict that this practical, helpful book will be a dog-eared companion to many new parents. It is an authoritative guide to all aspects of infant care from growth to behavior and development. Best of all, Robin Weiss’ reassuring voice and nurturing style makes it feel you have a wise friend at hand to help you anytime, day or night.” —Elizabeth Pantley, Bestselling author of the No-Cry parenting book series, including the classic book on sleep, The No-Cry Sleep Solution

Robin gives a pretty unbiased view of bringing up baby, however, she does mention co-sleeping, attachment parenting, baby-wearing, breastfeeding all in a positive light. All of which I liked. She has Hot Mama tips, Affirmation quotes and Mama Moments in her sidebars throughout the book to offer encouragement to moms desiring to get back in shape, on baby’s development and mama’s mothering. The photos of the mothers and babies throughout the book are beautiful - THEFASHONABLEBAMBINO.COM
