The Vital Touch $17.00
HOW INTIMATE CONTACT WITH YOUR BABY LEADS TO HAPPIER,
In this probing and insightful book, psychologist Sharon Heller uses evolutionary psychology to examine why social pressures and a desire for self-sufficiency have caused Americans to distance ourselves physically from our children. Our overreliance on infant carriers, strollers, swings and cribs as parenting substitutes often prevents us from attaining physical closeness with our children, causing increased fussiness in infants and creating conflict for the mothers. Drawing from an inspiring array of cultural and anthropological sources, The Vital Touch explores all the psychological, physiological and sensory benefits that occur when parent and baby are in touch-and what happens when they're not-and shows us how we can provide a soothing and nurturing environment in which our children will thrive.

The Diaper Free Baby
THE NATURAL TOILET TRAINING ALTERNATIVE $15.99
by Christine Gross-Loh
The Diaper Free Baby addresses three categories of parents: full-time, part-time and occasional EC'ers. Parents can practice EC as much or as little as fits their family and lifestyle. A support group within a book, The Diaper Free Baby also includes inspiring testimonials throughout every chapter. Parents who have successfully practiced EC identify common struggles, share experiences and problem-solving tips, and provide encouragement for those new to the technique. Their motivational stories together with Gross-Loh's practical advice will appeal to all parents interested in a fresh alternative to traditional toilet training.
The Other Baby Book
A NATURAL APPROACH TO BABY'S FIRST YEAR $12.99
by Megan McGrory Massaro and Miriam J. Katz
The Other Baby Book guides new and expecting mamas on a journey past "shoulds" and "musts" back to the heart of true joy and connection. Massaro and Katz throw off the shackles of profit-driven companies and popular yet potentially harmful baby-rearing practices, and offer moms simple, yet profound, ways to support the mother-baby relationship.
Unique, friendly and down to earth, this very fine parenting book will inform and inspire us all in parenting the next generation with love, connectedness, freedom and fun. ~ Sarah Buckley, MD, author of Gentle Birth, Gentle Mothering
The Continuum Concept
IN SEARCH OF HAPPINESS LOST
by Jean Liedloff
Jean Liedloff, an American writer, spent two and a half years deep in the South American jungle living with Stone Age Indians. The experience demolished her Western preconceptions of how we should live and led her to a radically different view of what human nature really is. She offers a new understanding of how we have lost much of our natural well-being and shows us practical way to regain it for our children and for ourselves.
I highly recommend Jamie Glowacki's book, "Oh Crap. Potty Training". I used Jamie's advice to potty train my son and I think she is a potty training genius. Click on the link below to go to her website to purchase her book:
