Recommended websites and books

I have found some really good websites and books, and I still search for ones about parenting and children's health. Here is my list. If you have a favorite you think I should add, let me know and I will consider it.

  • www.franklypregnant.com. Why I like this site: the Q&A section. She has a lot of good information, and she has a good sense of humor, too. A lot of stuff about pregnancy and labor require some laughs!
  • www.attachmentparenting.org. Why I like this site: It has a ton of information on attachment parenting, baby-wearing and effective discipline. The whole idea is to respond to the needs of your baby and children with love, and children will naturally grow psychologically healthy. After learning more, I decided to baby-wear, and both my baby and I love it.
  • How to raise a healthy child in spite of your doctor (Book) by Dr. Robert S. Mendelsohn. Here is a pediatrician giving you the scoop on children's health! His chapter on fevers is immensely reassuring, and because he is a pediatrician, it's not quack advice. I also really liked his advice on vaccinations, and I wish I had read it sooner. All in all, there is nothing I don't like about his book. I wish he lived near me to be my pediatrician!
