Infant Books


My TOP THREE Recommendations for Infant-Related Books

The First Twelve Months of Life: Your Baby's Growth Month by Month
by Frank Caplan
"For over twenty years this has helped parents understand their new babies: enjoy an updated classic which has been newly revised with the latest research for new parents, documenting a baby's first 12 months of changes and including monthly growth charts, answers to common concerns, and overviews of what to anticipate in a baby's life." -- Midwest Book Review 

The Mommy Manual: Planting Roots That Give Your Children Wings
by Barbara Curtis, a Montessori teacher and homeschool mom!
"I can't recommend this book enough to all new moms (and older ones too). It is truly one of the best books, if not THE best, out there to help moms ENJOY those early years of mothering.  "My advice? Buy at least 5 copies. One for yourself and four more to give out at Baby Showers." ( customer review.) 
"I loved this book! If I had the money I would buy one for every mom I know! The author had so many great ideas about being a parent and how to raise your children in a way that will encourage them to be all that God has for them. I felt very inspired after reading this to try to be more patient and enjoy every minute with my daughter, even when she insists on doing things her way :). I have started modifying things around the house so she can do things more independently and she really does beam when she accomplishes a new task. I encourage you to get a copy of this book and start trying some of the suggestions! I'm already looking forward to rereading this again." ( customer review.)

The Second Twelve Months of Life: Your Baby's Growth Month By Month
by Frank Caplan
"This book, along with the authors' book The First Twelve Months of Life, are my two favorite books on infant development. It explains how babies perceive the world and how they progress in their development, month by month. These books helped me when my own kids were babies and they're the books that I give as gifts to new parents." reviewer
