worth it !!!

I ordered this book after a friend gave me a copy of Expecting Better, and I was not disappointed. This is a priceless resource for parenting, covering many of the big issues from breastfeeding to co sleeping, etc. There are a number of valuable charts to bookmark for future reference (like losing weight after birth, and language development to pick a couple of examples). Also it's an enjoyable read, interspersing personal anecdote with data analysis

summarized guide

in this summarized guide the author provides the available research and suggesting some factors to consider in personal decision making. It isn't about telling you what you should do, more of a guide to how to go about making your decisions. Although it does generally explain things like percentiles, study design, etc, people with at least a little background and interest in statistics/research methods may enjoy it more, but I don't think it ever gets too technical. Discussions about pregnancy and parenting are far too commonly dominated by conflicting assertions backed up with an unholy amalgam of anecdotes, judgement, pseudoscience, and cherry picking. A guide like this, which tells the reader what we actually know (and what we actually don't) hopefully helps parents to feel confident of themselves making informed decisions based on what's right for their family

amazing book

My one criticism for this summary guide is toward the parts that were not grounded in data. The postpartum recovery section seemed to be based on personal experience and anecdotes, and repeated some potentially harmful myths (e.g. about how "capacious" one's vagina is after childbirth). These are admittedly more medical questions than the others dealt with in the book, but I would have liked this section too to be more in the spirit of a critical view of existing evidence. In the same vein, the how-to section on breastfeeding strayed too much into the realm of personal experience and unscientific sampling of anecdotes.
Nevertheless, this is a really amazing book and I plan on getting it for all future baby shower

wonderful job

This book is a nice guide to navigating the parenting literature with an eye for research methods. The author also does a wonderful job at discussing how sometimes what parents care about is not what research measures. I also found it freeing to know that there is not a lot of evidence for a whole host of things. I'm drawn to attachment parenting practices, and I personally chose to breastfeed- it felt amazing to realize I was doing these things because I WANT to, not because I HAVE to because "the evidence says".The big takeaway, then, is "just do you" - with a few caveats: please vaccinate, do not spank your children.
