Baby on the Way by William Sears, M.D.; Martha Sears, R.N.; and Christie Watts Kelly
Attachment parenting specialists William and Martha Sears, a doctor-nurse team, co-wrote this gentle yet straightforward story about the baby growing inside Mom's uterus. Baby on the Way explains that pregnancy makes mommy tired and hungry, and it is a great time to be a good helper to her. A companion book by the same authors, What Baby Needs, discusses what older siblings will see after the newborn arrives, such as breastfeeding, babywearing (in a sling), co-sleeping (in a co-sleeper), and other aspects of attachment parenting.
