SuperBaby Book Review


I recently received this book, Superbaby, for review. The book is written by Dr. Jenn Berman is has a subtitle of "12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years." Does this sound like an intriguing title to you? It did to me. 

What I love about this book is that even though my daughter is already 15 months old, there are still so many ideas, suggestions and techniques that Dr. Berman mentions that I can still incorporate. I am a first time mom and I have a lot of questions. I have asked questions as I have gone along. I've asked my mom, my friends, my pediatrician. But there are also so many things I didn't ask, either because I didn't think of it or because I was honestly embarrassed to ask. I mean, I'm a mom, some of this stuff I should know and if I don't I'm not going to admit it. Anyone else been there?

Superbaby covers so many things that help parents to lead their children down a great path for development. From things as simple as providing some hot-line numbers for breast feeding support to tips on how to successfully get through the day without t.v. or what shows will at least be beneficial. 

While the book is full of information about a huge variety of things, it's all focused on the same thing. Helping parents make informed decisions and help them understand their child's development. But what I liked most about this book was the way in which it was written. I never felt like Dr. Berman was giving me a "this is the right way" or "this is the only way" attitude. I felt like I was listening to a caring doctor who has a strong background and has some advice. Do we all know the appropriate age to start reading to our children? Much of life as a parent is a guessing game, but isn't it nice to have some guidance?

I think Superbaby is a great resource for new moms. Read the whole thing or keep it on hand for individual situations, Follow it to a T or use it as a guide. To each his own, but I will definitely refer to this book as parenthood hands me more questions.

Looks like a great book and believe me I had some questions that I wanted to ask but I thought you know what I can do it by myself. But it is always great to get some help and guidance. Looks like a great book and great review as well.

Information that informs the public and makes them good citizens
is the kind of quality information that one can be proud to call news,
and if it ever goes completely out of style, may the Lord help us, for it will be the end
of civilization as we know it. Office goers and people who are travelling often do not get time to read news from the newspaper or watch it to get good information they could subscribe for sports SMS

Make a list of your nutrition chart involving juice
and fruits at the top followed by green vegetables
and milk products. The reason this is important is because you will have a stronger knowledge base and bag of tricks
to keep you going on the rougher days. What I tell
my clients is that they need to schedule their fitness time
like it's a doctor's appointment.
