His books came highly recommended to me, and I still use them to this day. His Web site is also a great place to go to quickly get any kind of child health, nutrition, discipline, feeding,etc. questions answered.
Dr. Sears is not afraid to say what is truly best for children and why, and I appreciate that! He is a strong advocate for attachment parenting - including breastfeeding, co-sleeping, baby-wearing, and gentle discipline. He also believes strongly in the power of teaching good nutrition at an early age.
While there is no manual that is going to work for every issue for every family, Dr. Sears has been trusted in our home for many years now!
