Don’t have a village? How to create one

Over in “parenting school” I mentioned last week, there’s a lively conversation. Dr. Laura Markham talked about giving ourselves permission to be less productive.

"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?

"The coolest—and easiest—book for new parents."


"Bound to become a modern-day parenting classic."
