Some reading ideas for busy parents

There are a lot of parenting guides out there - none of which know your baby as well as you do (even before they are born).  In fact a recent study showed that the more parenting guides parents read, the more they were at risk of postnatal depression.  

 

However, there are some excellent evidence based books and websites about baby and family development and you might be interested in some of these (please excuse the amazon links):

 

 

Sue Gerhadt: Why love matters

Margot Sutherland: What Every Parent Needs to Know: The incredible effects of love, nurture and play on your child's development

Naomi Stadlen: What mothers do
