Parenting and breastfeeding books - Erika's Favorites

Parenting book? Ever heard the line about how babies should come with a manual? ...or you need a license to get married, why don't you need one to have a baby?

As a parent, you fight an internal battle with the many influences of society every day. Many moms and dads look for the right books to read and provide them with all the answers.

There are many books and manuals out there that are very helpful and may even change the way you view your style and goals as a mother or father. While there is no such parenting book that qualifies as a baby manual or the bible of all parent guides, there are some very good ones out there.

Read the ones that seem to suit your belief system and parenting style best and leave the rest.
