I love books!

This post was written as part of The Breastfeeding Cafe's Carnival. For more info on the Breastfeeding Cafe, go to For more info on the Carnival or if you want to participate, contact Claire at clindstrom2 {at} gmail {dot} com. Today's post is about your favorite parenting books. Please read the other blogs in today's carnival listed below and check back for more posts July 18th through the 31st!

The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding by by Diane Wiessinger, Diana West and Teresa Pitman ***** Must have for all new moms. If you have a breastfeeding question, it will likely help you out.

How Weaning Happens by Diane Bengson ***** Loved this book. Lots of information on weaning at different ages, and information on baby-led weaning. Helped me decide to continue nursing!

So That's What They're for! by Janet Tamaro***** Pretty great book. Mixes facts and funnies so you can learn stuff and have a good chuckle too. My favorite part is when she says if you're having trouble convincing baby's father you should breastfeed just tell him this: Michal Jordan was breastfed. Michael Jackson was not. Hilarious!

How to Talk so Kids will Listen & Listen so Kids will Talk by Adele Faber and Elaine Mazlish***** Really helpful when dealing with young children. Helps parents help children to make good choices because they want to, not because they have to. Very good.

And if you need a break from parenting and just need to pee your pants laughing read Are You There Vodka? It's me, Chelsea by Chelsea Handler. Love that woman!

Here are more post by the Breastfeeding Cafe Carnival participants! Check back because more will be added throughout the day.
