I’ve read most of the books below multiple times; I always uncover new words of wisdom when I revisit them, challenging me to be a better parent and giving me the confidence to forge my own path. I trust their advice, which is backed by scientific evidence, evolutionary history, common sense and compassion. The authors have influenced the way we parent our son and have compelled me to grow as a person myself. Grab a cuppa, settle in and I hope you enjoy them too.
As parents, we need to be cautious about who we trust to give us advice. After all, not only is there profit to be made from sleep deprived, overwhelmed, solution hungry parents but professionals, family and friends may subconsciously pressure us to make similar choices they made. Thankfully, there’s a growing community of passionate, credible and kindhearted individuals, dedicating their careers to specializing in specific areas of infant and child development.
