Lots of useful answers to questions a new parent would have. Authors do sort of promote attachment parenting but if you're not into that you can ignore that advice and take what you will ... there's still lots of good info.

Attachment parenting. Controversial breast feeding into the toddler years as seen on the cover of Times magazine.
