Superbaby by Dr. Jenn Berman
Honestly, this book had me manically vacillating between overwhelmed, proud, and motivated. She expounds on 12 areas in which we affect our babies the most. Areas in which I felt overwhelmed: It's Easy Being Green (Reducing exposure to toxic chemicals), Babies without Borders (Foreign language), Food for Thought (Eating and Nutrition). Areas in which I felt proud: Talk the Talk (Respectful communication), You Got Me! (Responding to Cues), Tick-Tock (Creating security and predictability), Baby Got Book (Reading), Thinking Outside the Box (Screen Time). Areas in which I feel motivated: Let Your Fingers Do the Walking (The Importance of Touch), More Than Chitchat: Promoting language development), Talk to the Hand (Sign Language), A Different Kind of Toy Story ( The Importance of Play).
