Distinguished pediatrician Dr Robert Bucknam, M.D. and co-author Gary Ezzo are two of the world’s leading experts on infant management concepts. In this revised 5th edition, they have updated their groundbreaking approach which has found favor with over six million parents in all 50 states and has been translated into 16 languages around the world.<br /><br />For over 20 years, On Becoming Babywise has been the de facto newborn parenting manual for naturally synchronizing your baby’s feeding time, waketime and nighttime sleep cycles, so the whole family can sleep through the night.<br /><br />The authors demonstrate how order and stability are mutual allies of every newborn’s metabolism and how parents can take advantage of these biological propensities. In particular, they note how an infant’s body responds to the influences of parental routine or the lack thereof.<br /><br />Early chapters start with explorations of everyday aspects of infant management such as the three basic elements of daytime activities for newborns: feeding time, waketime, and naptime. <br /><br />Practical discussions then focus on broad and niche topics including feeding philosophies, baby sleep problems, baby scheduling challenges, nap routines, sleep training multiples, baby sleeping props, Colic and Reflux and many other dimensions which impact breast feeding schedules, bottle feeding tips and baby sleep training.<br /><br />Five resource Appendixes provide additional reference material:<br /><br />1) Taking care of baby and mom<br />2) A timeline of what to expect and when<br />3) Baby Sleep Training Problems and Solutions<br />4) Monitoring Your Baby’s Growth<br />5) Healthy Baby Growth Charts<br /><br />On Becoming Babywise is more than an infant-management concept. It is a mindset for successful parenthood. It can help any parent develop a plan that meets both the needs of a new baby and of the entire family. These principles have worked for millions of parents and, when applied with common sense to your unique situation, can work wonderfully for you too! Recommended by doctors across the country.

"Susan Piver consistently offers what so many of us seek: A generous, caring, loving teacher, someone with an open heart and a clear mind, eager to help us find our own way forward." --Seth Godin, author of Linchpin.<br /><br />Broken hearts, resentment, affairs, divorce. Why is it so hard to make relationships work? New York Times bestselling author and mindfulness expert Susan Piver applies classic Buddhist wisdom to modern romance, including her own long-term relationship, to show that ancient philosophies have timeless—and unexpected—wisdom on how to love.<br /><br />The Four Noble Truths of Love will challenge the expectations you have about dating, sex, and romance, liberating you from the habits, traumas, and expectations that have been holding back your relationships. This mindful approach toward love will help you open your heart fearlessly, deepen communications with your partner, increase your compassion and resilience, and lead you toward a path of true happiness. You have nothing to lose and everything to gain: expansive, real love for yourself and others.<br /><br />* * * * * * * <br />Susan Piver is the New York Times bestselling author of nine books, including the award-winning "How Not to Be Afraid of Your Own Life", "The Wisdom of a Broken Heart", and "Start Here Now: An Open-Hearted Guide to the Path and Practice of Meditation". Her new book is "The Four Noble Truths of Love: Buddhist Wisdom for Modern Relationships" (June 2018).<br /><br />Piver has been a practicing Buddhist since 1995 and graduated from a Buddhist seminary in 2004. She is an internationally acclaimed meditation teacher, known for her ability to translate ancient practices into modern life. Her work has been featured on the Oprah show, TODAY, CNN, and in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, MONEY, and others.<br /><br />In 2011, she launched the Open Heart Project, the largest virtual mindfulness community in the world.<br /><br />For more information, visit susanpiver.com. <br /><br />* * * * * * *<br />“Susan Piver brings together decades of wisdom and experience from both her Buddhist practice and her relationships. This book is direct, insightful and honest to its core. Using the lens of the Buddha’s noble truths and the path of liberation, Susan presents a practical roadmap that can be accessed by anyone. I don’t think a book quite like this has been written before. She is definitely a wise guide on what it truly means to love altogether and how compassion and insight can be mined from the ups and downs of everyday life and every connection. Susan presents the biggest view possible on what love can be—it’s quite an invitation.”<br />Josh Baran, author of The Tao of Now: Daily Wisdom from Mystics, Sages, Poets, and Saints<br /> <br />“The Four Noble Truths of Love is like the book baby of the Buddha and Oprah Winfrey. It pulls no punches in the best of ways. Chock-full of relationship a-ha moments, it made me reflect not just on my marriage and how to keep deepening into it, but also on every loving relationship in my life. This wisdom may be thousands of years old, but Piver’s ability to convey it with grace, humor, humility, and profound relevance to modern life is a true gift. Get it, read it, live it!”<br />Jonathan Fields, founder of Good Life Project<br /><br />“Susan Piver consistently offers what so many of us seek: A generous, caring, loving teacher, someone with an open heart and a clear mind, eager to help us find our own way forward.”<br />Seth Godin, author of Linchpin<br /> <br />“If you’ve ever felt that secret shame of not loving well or not managing to embody that perfect detached modern-day Buddha you know you’re supposed to be, this is not only your book, it is your salvation. Susan’s message, voice, and real world guidance show you the way out of the illusions and traps of relationship and into a level of freedom that is at once both profound and practical.”<br />Christine Kane, founder and CEO of Uplevel You

It's reality-check time! You are at least five months into your tour of parenting duty by now. The complexity of child-training has begun to come into focus. You have learned that as your baby matures both constant and variable factors continually influence his or her development. What behaviors can and should you expect from your pretoddler? Feeding time for your pretoddler, for example, is now more than a response controlled by a sucking reflex. For the pretoddler, mealtime is part of a very complex, conscious interaction between what the child does and what his parents expect him to do. Right and wrong conduct will be encouraged, discouraged, and guided when necessary. In fact, right and wrong patterns of behavior will now be part of your baby's entire day. That's why feeding time, waketime and sleeptime provide wonderful opportunities for training and Babywise Book II will guide you all the way, from the high chair to playpen, from the living room to the back yard. This series teaches the practical side of introducing solids food, managing mealtimes, nap transitions, traveling with your infant, setting reasonable limits while encourage healthy exploration and much more. You will learn how to teach your child to use sign language for basic needs, a tool proven to help stimulate cognitive growth and advance communication. Apply the principles and your friends and relatives will be amazed at the alertness, contentedness and happy disposition of your baby

Stephanie’s mission in writing this book was to help overwhelmed moms learn how to take back their lives without feeling guilty in the process. She’s working to create a world where moms stop judging and comparing and start living their best lives.<br /><br />She is a mom of 2 boys, choir geek, runner and decaf mocha lover. She is known for her passionate personality and telling it like it is. She is a strong believer in the ripple effect. She believes that if we moms can do the work it takes to find that calm and heart-centered place inside ourselves, we can make a difference in the lives of our children. We can raise children who value their true selves and find worthiness in who they are as people, simply because they have moms who are fully committed to the same. <br /><br />“I’m not a superhero. I don’t ‘have it all figured out.’ I don’t pretend to. I simply wanted more for myself and my kids. I wanted to feel like I was adding value to the world. I wanted to feel calm. <br /><br />I have seen these changes profoundly affect my own children and their sense of peace. And really...no other measure of success matters.” <br /><br />“Create Your Calm: A Guilt-Free Journey to Peaceful Motherhood” is a book that will help you get clear on what kind of mom you want to be and give you a place to start so you can stop feeling overwhelmed and start showing up as the mom you want to be.<br /><br />You've got this mama!<br />

<h3>Codependent partners are not necessarily together because they <b>want</b> to be, they are because they <b>have</b> to be...</h3><br /><br />If you’ve had difficulty with starting or maintaining relationships, issues with feeling jealous and possessive or find that your connections with others are more a source of distress than anything else, <i>this book is for you</i>. <br /><br />It may feel sometimes that an intense and serious connection with someone is proof of the depth of the feeling you have for one another. But be careful, obsession and dependency is not the same as love. <br /><br />In the codependent relationship, our affection and attention is coming from a place of fear and need. As a result, the partners never really connect with each other. They do endless, complicated dances around each others problems, but what they never do is make an honest human connection.<br /><br />In codependent relationships, manipulation, guilt and resentment take the place of healthy, balanced affection. Codependent partners are not necessarily together because they want to be, they are because they <i>have to be</i>, because they don’t know how to live otherwise. <br /><br />One partner may bring a history of abuse, a “personality disorder” or mental illness into a relationship; the ways the other partner responds to this may be healthy or not, but if they bring their own issues to the table too, they may find that the bond of their love is more accurately described as a shared and complementary dysfunction.<br /><br />Remember, the relationships we are in can never be better than the relationships we have with ourselves. Two unhappy people together never make a happy couple together. We cannot treat other people in ways we have never taken the time to consider before, and we cannot communicate properly if we are not even sure what it is we need to communicate in the first place. <br /><br />An individual with a mature, well-developed sense of themselves has the most to offer someone else. They have their own lives, their own sense of self-worth, their own strength. And when you remove need, fear, obsession and desperation, you open up the way for love and affection just for its own sake. <br /><br />Love is many things, but it’s cheapened when held hostage by the ego. Connections formed around ego and fear may be strong and lasting, but what keeps them going is mutual need. What could be more romantic than, “I don’t need to be with you. You don’t complete me at all. I am happy and stable and fulfilled without you. But I still want to be with you, because you’re awesome”?<br /><br />It all boils down to this: <i>communication</i>. <br /><br />Whether it’s through words or not, we are constantly communicating, and the accumulation of these little units creates this big thing we call <i>a relationship</i>.
