Top Ten Tuesday: Parenting Books


I’ve decided to try something new each week. Every Tuesday I’ll post a “Top Ten List” about something relating to pregnancy, babies, new moms, motherhood, baby gear, etc. These lists are in no specific order, they are just a list of the top ten items I’ve read/done/experienced/bought/heard was great/etc. This week, it’s Parenting Books.

  1. What to Expect the First Year by Sandee Hathaway, Arlene Eisenberg & Heidi Murkoff
  2. The Happiest Baby on the Block by Harvey Karp, MD
  3. Bringing Up Bébé by Pamela Druckerman
  4. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child by Marc Weissbluth
  5. The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding by Diane Weissinger, Diana West & Teresa Pitman
  6. Sh*tty Mom: The Parenting Guide for the Rest of Us by Laurie Kilmartin, Karen Moline, Alicia Ybarbo, & Mary Ann Zoellner
  7. Sippy Cups are Not for Chardonnay: And Other Things I Had to Learn as a New Mom by Stefanie Wilder-Taylor
  8. Daddy Needs a Drink: An Irreverent Look at Parenting from a Dad Who Truly Loves His Kids – Even When They’re Driving Him Nuts by Robert Wilder
  9. Confessions of a Scary Mommy: An Honest and Irreverent Look at Motherhood – The Good, The Bad & The Scary by Jill Smokler
  10. Go the F**k to Sleep by Adam Mansbach and Ricardo Cortés

Although there isn’t much time for reading during the first year, do try. These books are worth it and offer excellent first-hand insight into the world of newborns and caring for your child(ren). Plus some of them will give you a good chuckle! 😉

Enjoy! -themidwestmama
