I read books, lots of them..simply because I love reading and mostly because I have time to do so (pre baby years..heh!)
But now I read books on babies because they help me to figure out the best way to raise my child. I can’t stand all the conventional methods that old people preach about no matter how many kids those folks have. (Things like tidokan dalam buaian, dodoikan before tido, using pacifier, jangan mandi waktu malam, crying is good to clear their lungs..huh??!) It just doesn’t work for me (or at least doesn’t provide me with the peace of mind that I yearn for.)
So in the end I trust what I read from books. After all these authors have done their research and observations on thousands, if not hundreds of children before they come out with the books. At the moment I am eyeing to buy these 2 books :
Secrets of the Baby Whisperer: How to Calm, Connect and Communicate with Your Baby by the late Tracy Hogg.
The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night by Elizabeth Pantley.
I hope I will get good amount of paid posts this month so that I have enough money in my PayPal to pay for these 2 books on eBay. I have tried looking at local book stores online but they don’t keep these 2 books in stock..sigh!
