Will I create a spoiled kid if I give in to the tantrum?

Raise your hand if you can relate to this question from K.G.! Oh, everyone? Excellent. Q. I made grilled chicken breasts and cut it up for my nearly 3-year-old — who then had a fit because he wanted a big piece. And this trivial little thing made me really uncertain about what to do. Do I refuse to […]

4 ways to handle minor toddler falls

Last week my 3-year-old fell off the swing and face-planted on the ground. She laid there for a second, and I got down next to her. She wasn’t crying, so I said, “What do you see?” “My necklace,” she replied, and she got rather interested in checking out its detail. “Interesting blades of grass there, too,” […]

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

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?
