    Default Book recommendations - Attachment parenting

    Looking for book recommendations - have just joined the Parenting Library and was wondering what books cover attachment parenting/philosophies well?
    Someone has just recommended Beyond the Sling so am going to start there! Any others?

    The Continuum Concept - Jean Liedloff
    Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering - Dr. Sarah Buckley

    Um, I thought I knew more titles but I gave up reading books a few months post birth and just started doing whatever my baby told me to!

    Buddhism for Mothers - Sarah Napthali
    Children are people too - Dr Louise Porter
    Toddler Tactics - Pinky McKay, reading this at the moment, lots of practical tips and ideas.

    I haven't read yet, but "Raising our children, Raising ourselves by Naomi Aldort", Have heard really good things about.

    Thanks some great suggestions. I love Sarah Napthali's books! Am going to see if the library has any of these or maybe the city library may have files I can download onto my ereader.

    I would love to see some feedback on Beyond the Sling. I have been umming and ahhing over buying it or whether it would just be better to encourage my local library to do it
    I'm about half way through and I've enjoyed it so far although i havent picked up in a couple of weeks. Talks about her journey with parenting and why she has made the choices she has and touches on science behind attachment cause she studied it as part of her phd.

    Not really a - this is how you ap but more this how I Ap sort of book of you get what I mean.


    I got it from book depository pretty cheap.

    OP I recommend the baby book by dr sears or anything by Pinky McKay

    Good to hear lots of titles at the library!
    Yes my friend sid Beyond the Sling is more a personal journey backed up with scientific based evidence. Looking forward to it as I dont really want to read "this is how you should do it" books if you get what I mean. I enjoy reading "journey" type books
