Best Parenting Books




1. Keep Calm the New Mum’s Manual by Dr Ellie Cannon





Down with all this nonsense that babies are robots that can be programmed to eat, sleep, and poop on a schedule to suit your needs.  Dr Cannon’s fantastic book is an easy read that reassures mums (and dads) that, despite what your granny may be telling you, it’s perfectly normal for your baby to wake and feed when it likes.  It’s okay to make a few mistakes - your instincts won’t let you make any big ones.  This is a must-read for all new mums to avoid unneeded stress and guilt.  Just relax and enjoy your time with your little one.  You’re doing fine!  





2. The No Cry Sleep Solution by Elizabeth Pantley





If your baby isn’t sleeping, you probably feel like you’ve tried every trick in the book – well not this book!  It’s not a quick fix, but a series of strategies for different ages to help you encourage your baby (or child) to sleep for longer periods at naptime or night.  This book is a wonderful breath of fresh air after enduring all those aging relatives encouraging you to “Just leave them to cry!”  No need to break your baby’s heart (or yours) to get a little shut-eye; Elizabeth Pantley has opened up a world of effective and loving alternatives.  





3. The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding from La Leche League





International expert lactation group La Leche League has released the 8th edition of their classic book on breastfeeding as part of everyday life.  This breastfeeding bible is perfect for any mums (or prospective mums) who want to nurse their babies.  It puts a stop to all of those negative breastfeeding myths that make mums second-guess themselves.  It also gives guidance on what normal feeding looks like for a breastfed child.  Empower yourself with knowledge and some handy tricks to help you get through those tougher days.   





4. French Kids Eat Everything by Karen Le Billon





It’s happened to all of us: you spend hours slaving away to produce a healthy homemade gourmet meal only to have your child spit it out and demand fish fingers, or worse yet, refuse to taste it at all.  This light-hearted read lets the English-speaking world in on the secret of just how the French have managed to raise kids who will not only try new and exotic foods, but even like them!  Complete with a selection of recipes to make for your own picky eaters, Karen Le Billon’s guide to childhood eating habits is one of the best parenting books out there for fussy kids.  





5. How to Talk so Kids will Listen and Listen so Kids will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish





This international bestseller provides clear instructions on how to develop and maintain a healthy relationship with your children.  Don’t let arguments and upset rule your family life.  Instead, learn how to express negative feelings without hurting anyone’s feelings, how to set boundaries in a positive way, and how to maintain a calm, peaceful, and loving connection with your children.
