From the Hips

This book just came out this week. I have not read it but apparently lots of people, including Gwyneth Palthrow, are already raving about it and given it their stamp of approval. It was written by recent moms and longtime friends Rebecca Odes and Ceridwen Morris when they couldn't find the kind of book they were looking for when they were pregnant and just had their children. Apparently, it offers tips on everything during pregnancy to integrating the baby into your home. There's also a helpful resource guide to all things baby related. You can go to Amazon for more information.

The Contented Baby

Motherhood is an exciting journey. While it can be hard at times, I am blessed to have many friends and family to support me along the way. There are also a lot of useful resources out there to help new moms like myself. One resource that me and my husband Vitali found very useful is a book by Gina Ford named " The Contented Baby".

Gina gives a lot of useful advice on how to raise a happy baby. She gives very useful tips on sleeping and breastfeeding and advocates putting your baby on a schedule right from the start. While I do not follow her schedule strictly, I found many of the principles behind her ideas useful and have adapted them for Vera.

You can get "The Contented Baby" from local bookstores such as Borders or at Amazon.
