So Amy Farrah Fowler wrote a book about babies right when I had one. And it's pretty good, too! I read it very quickly: it's easy to read, with a nice dose of humor, and it doesn't take itself too seriously. Although I disagree with her on some points (like vaccines - though she doesn't talk much about them - and teaching stuff to kids) I find many of her ideas very interesting. It sure made me think about my way of raising my kids, and it's nice that she's never judgmental (I did feel a bit inadequate when I read the chapter about elimination communication - I could NEVER be that patient - but I think that mostly speaks to my insecurities as a mother). It's also good to read that just following my instincts already makes me a great mother, heh - and to get a Neuroscience PhD to confirm that I won't spoil my baby by holding her as much as we both want to...
