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.

<b>An incredible story about the resiliency of the human spirit that will change the way you see life.</b><br />An Illusion of Normal is the riveting and award-winning memoir of the life of a child whose mother suffers from paranoid schizophrenia. At times shocking and heartbreaking, the author’s story reveals the darkness in a home tormented by a parent’s mental illness and the light that shows her the way out.<br />In an era when speaking of mental illness was taboo, the author learns from an early age not to talk about her mother’s bizarre behavior. Now her mother’s escape from a would-be killer threatens to expose the family secret. They are not a normal family. After her mother’s extended stays in mental institutions, the author accepts that her Mom will never be normal. That, she assumes, makes her abnormal as well. She wrestles against her father’s abuse and constant shaming of her, her faith, and her friends. Will she ever feel normal in an abnormal family? Did God make a mistake? Why is she in a home where she doesn’t feel loved and accepted? Is there a way for her to break away from the shame that holds her captive?<br />An inspirational story for anyone searching for hope to overcome life’s most difficult trials. <br />In a time when stop the stigma should be screamed from every mountain, the author tells the truth. The truth about mental illness. The truth about how it affects those who are sick as well as their families. We put pink ribbons on everything from pens to socks to bumper stickers to declare the importance of understanding breast cancer. It is time we give the same attention to mental illness—Eva Marie Everson, best-selling author, The Bipolar Experience<br />

Who doesn't love 'Frogger?' It draws its power from our shared memories of powerlessness. Wherever we are now, at one time or another we have all felt the poor frog's anxiety in the face of the world's intransigence, its blind and callous disregard for our happiness or well-being. D.B.Weiss<br /><br />For Buddy and Sandy Henderson of Marietta, Georgia life is good. They have worked hard and played by the rules providing a safe and comfortable life for their family. But a historic snow storm, a convergence of events and poor decisions send the vulnerable family spinning into traffic. As their old life craters, new opportunities light-up within the burgeoning legalized marijuana industry. A mysterious inheritance in Denver opens the door to the Pleiades, an elegantly restored Victorian mansion. The Bud and Breakfast Inn is the perfect stage for characters to play their parts in life's randomness. The Southern family struggles to gain control as current realities disrupt at every turn.<br />

<h1>“Budget" - it's a meager little word, one that all too often comes after <b>“tight”...</b></h1><br /><br /><h3><b><i>>>> 16 Additional books included - LIMITED TIME OFFER!<<<</i></b></h3><br /><br />... Maybe you think of this word as an adjective, something to describe a cheap and substandard car or hotel. “Budget” brings to mind rationing, a kind of money diet. <br /><br />If you're like many people, budgeting is something you do with a kind of deflated spirit: budgeting means bargain bin quality and the sad sense that what you want is going to be just out of reach.<br /><br /><i>This book will try a different approach to budgeting altogether...</i><br /><br />This book will offer an expanded notion of what it means to budget. We'll look at how money is not the only resource that needs to be managed, and a “life budget” that acknowledges your emotional, behavioral, social and even spiritual capital is more likely to lead to smarter decisions.<br /><br />We'll explore shopping and spending habits, identify problem areas, think about debt and make achievable goals for home, work and more. We'll look at concrete ways to put some of these principles into action, and look at resources that will keep you focused and motivated. <br /><br />At the same time, this book is also about the philosophy of minimalism, not thriftiness. If you can pair your budget plan with a more nuanced understanding of your relationship with money and how it ties into how you want to live, the changes you make will be more <i>authentic</i> and longer lasting.<br /><br />Minimalism is not about doing with less than you need. Rather, it's about finding what you need and fulfilling that need exactly, without excess. It's a subtle and easily overlooked point: to have exactly enough is not suffering. Budgeting is therefore about understanding what you need to have enough, and how best you can allocate your resources to that end.<br /><br />Life is short. Money and material things can make our time on this earth better, and they can help us move closer to what we find meaningful and worthwhile. But they are <i>not</i> meaningful and worthwhile in themselves. <br /><br />Money is a <i>tool</i> and how we spend it is an expression of our values and what we think is important. <br /><br />How much would you pay for peace of mind and the calm you get from knowing you are living well? How much of your life do you give away when you work? Of all your expenses, have you remembered to include the time you waste stressing about money?<br /><br />These may seem like vague or overly philosophical questions, but they get to the root of how we earn, spend and think of money. Once we understand these roots, our efforts to save here and there not only become easier, they become more <i>meaningful</i>.

<h1><i>"The tragedy of life is not death, but what we let die inside of us while we are still living..."</i></h1><br /><br /><h3><b><i>>>> 11 BONUS BOOKS</i></b><i> INCLUDED IN THIS BOOK! <b>LIMITED TIME OFFER!<<<</b></i></h3><br /><br />Some time ago, I stumbled across this quote by Norman Cousins – and felt as though it had slapped me across the face. <br /><br />Like any thirty-something, questions of my own mortality had gradually changed from being an interesting hypothetical to something very real, and very scary. <br /><br />While the first part of my life had seem filled with new beginnings and first times, the second half looked a bit more dire: I was beginning to realize that there would be <i>last times</i> for everything, too. <br /><br />And like the typical thirty-something, I had a mild existential crisis about it: had I really lived my life well up until that moment? Had I wasted my youth, and was I possibly wasting my life right this minute?<br /><br />When I saw this quote, it dawned on me: I wasn’t actually afraid of death itself. How could I be? After all, I wouldn’t be around when it happened. Rather, what I was afraid of was the crushing awareness that I wasn’t living while I actually had the chance.<br /><br />Living intentionally can be frightening, but it is the foundation of a regret-less, meaningful life. This cannot be emphasized enough: there is no meaning without intention.<br /><br />This book will be structured around <b>three key steps</b> to cultivating and developing a style of life that is <i>intentional</i> and geared towards <i>deep, personal fulfillment</i>. <br /><br />I’m sharing these principles with you not because I think they are the be all and end all, but because they have been so useful in <i>my own journey</i> towards a life that really means something. <br /><br /><h3><b><i>Get your copy today!</i></b></h3>

<h3>In this book, we’ll be tackling the familiar challenges of personal finance management … but in an <b>unfamiliar</b> way.</h3> <br /><br /><b>>>> 1 BONUS BOOK INCLUDED IN THIS BOOK! <i>("THE MINIMALIST BUDGET - A Practical Guide On How To Save Money, Spend Less And Live More With A Minimalist Lifestyle")</i> LIMITED TIME OFFER!<<<</b><br /><br />If your main money problem is simply “I don’t have enough of it!” you may be surprised at the approach this book will take. Here, you will <i>not</i> find the same old tips and tricks on how to save money by re-using teabags or buying rice in bulk. Instead, we’ll get to the very <i>heart</i> of what money actually means, how we spend it and why, and what you can do to start using what you have right now to create a lifestyle that has meaning for you.<br /><br />We’ll consider the root causes of careless spending, as well as the three biggest but largely invisible money myths we all believe in to some extent. We’ll then consider ways to start creating a budget that works for you and your goals, rather than against it. <br /><br />The way you think about money is highly personal – your attitude to money is a reflection of your upbringing, your culture, your personality with all its virtues and shortcomings. Money can be a literal prison, tying you down to work and habits that drain you of motivation and purpose. It can also be a bridge that carries you to your life goals, a tool and a resource that allows you to access the things you truly value in life.<br /><br />The role that money ultimately plays in your life is entirely up to you. It rests in having the self-awareness to be honest about the choices we make every day, in the bravery to know what we value and hold dear, and the dedication to make rational strategies to reach those goals. <br /><br />My hope with this book is that it'll give you a starting point to begin to reconsider your relationship to money and, by extension, your relationship to yourself and the world you live in. My hope is that you'll find something that inspires you to think differently and make different choices, ones that will leave you feeling more in control and more fulfilled than before. <br /><br /><b><i>We each only have one life – here’s to spending it wisely!</i></b>

<h3>The world is a vast, complicated and sometimes downright <b>hostile</b> place...</h3> <br /><br /><br /><b><i>>>> 16 additional books included - LIMITED TIME OFFER! <<<</i></b><br /><br />Our hyper connected world bombards us with images of phenomenally successful celebrities together with the expectation that we should want nothing but the best for ourselves at all times. But in a bustling world of 7 billion people, carving out a meaningful niche for ourselves can be daunting to say the least.<br /><br />It's understandable that people feel the need to bolster their self esteem. Faced with millions of glossy images in the media about how we should live our lives, some have turned to trying even harder still to keep up. Others have merely given up. <br /><br />It's no exaggeration that people in the 21st century live in a world of infinitely more possibilities than any generation before them. We have experts and gurus of all stripes telling us that the life we have now is nothing compared to what we could achieve – and yet, <i>we're as depressed and lacking in confidence as ever</i>.<br /><br />Self help books on the market today will tell you one of two things: either that you are perfect already as you are and needn't worry, or that with just a little (well, a lot) of effort, you can reach those goals. Be the best, smartest, most successful, thinnest and relentlessly happiest version of yourself possible. <i>No excuses!</i><br /><br /><b>This book takes a different approach to self esteem altogether.</b> <br /><br />If you're feeling overwhelmed and worthless, inundated with information, struggling to juggle life, expectations, and disappointments... it may be time for a little <i>self-compassion</i>.<br /><br />Unlike self esteem or an inflated confidence level, self-compassion is a different way of looking at yourself and others, warts and all, and a way more realistic acceptance of the way things are. <br /><br />Healthier than a high self esteem is a realistic, compassionate view of ourselves – and others. Generating our sense of self-worth from within means we have a more stable self-concept – one that can endure criticism while still learning from it. One that can honestly appraise who we are as human beings – and love and respect ourselves anyway. With self-compassion, you become unflappable, calm and self-assured - without the risk of narcissism or becoming self-absorbed. <br /><br /><b>Through a series of exercises, this book will suggest a new, gentle yet extremely powerful attitude shift that can end feelings of self-hatred, doubt, shame and low self-worth <i>forever</i>.</b>
