70 Essential Parenting Tips Based on Science
(and What I’ve Learned So Far)

Zero to Five Cover

"I just feel at a loss." "My baby seems bored." "Maybe I'm not doing it right."

"I don't know what to do."

New parents need help. If you’re still pregnant, I know, you’re more worried about caffeine, cankles, and, oh, giving birth than what to do after baby arrives. If baby’s already here, you may have said one of those quotes yourself.

I’ve been there, too. As editor of the bestselling book Brain Rules for Baby, I knew what was good for baby’s brain development. But when my own baby was born, I thought, “Wait, how exactly do I do these things?” And I didn’t have the time or energy to dig through a stack of books.

Zero to Five is the book I wish I’d had. In it, I summarize the best research on engaging with baby, sleeping, feeding, screen time, potty training, discipline, and more.

And Zero to Five is designed with new parents in mind:

  • just flip to any page for a quick tip
  • beautiful photographs of real families that you (and baby) will love
  • fun and funny stories that connect the research to real life
  • hold the baby, not the book – it’s spiral-bound, so it lies flat on its own

Sound good?

10 activities you can do with an infant

“Umm … now what do we do?” I distinctly remember having this thought a couple weeks after my baby was born. Her first days home were a flurry of us trying to figure out how, basically, to keep her alive. How to sleep. Where to sleep. How the heck to feed her. Trips to the doctor to check her […]

‘I was a bad mom’? Gimme a break

The process of becoming a parent makes me think of one of those guys in a spy movie who gets an urgent call, within 24 hours is slipped a new passport with his photo but an utterly unfamiliar identity, and walks out the door attempting to seamlessly adopt this new persona. One day you are who you’ve always been. The next day your […]
