I tossed all of the ones that I got for my shower...what a joke. Actually about the only books I reference back to constantly are all of the Dr. Sears ones which I have in my home office. We were fortunate enough to have him as a doctor and use their lactation consultant when our son was born. Insurance issues caused me to make a change to another Pediatrician but I find his entire family and the values they hold right in line with how we parent.

Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn
and The Baby Book by Dr. Sears
Unconditional Parenting in particular has been really important when thinking about disciplining an active toddler.

Dr. Sears has a number of books. I started with The Baby Book, and have purchased The Discipline Book, The Successful Child... Great books. Practical parenting tips. Things that Dr. Sears and his family actually used... Love them!

I know what you mean Marcy, I've gotten rid of all the ones I was given too. That's why I was hoping you guys might have something more reasonable. Thanks for the suggestions.
