At the forefront of a passionate, growing movement called “attachment parenting,”BABY MATTERS” is a warmly presented guide that gives a rare overview of information that’s too often missing from parenting circles, pediatric offices, and other parenting resources. Dr. Palmer gives parents the power to make better decisions about baby care, by unraveling the newest research about hormones and bonding, breastfeeding, the big new problems with antibiotics for treating ear infections (and why they are usually inappropriate anyway), and the real causes of ear infections, colic, GERD, reflux, allergy-sensitivity reactions, and SIDS. Dr. Linda Folden Palmer is a doctor of chiropractic, a consultant and speaker on pediatric nutrition and natural parenting challenges, a science writer, and a mother. She left her chiropractic practice shortly after the birth of her son, when she was confronted with his serious health complications and astounded by the lack of accurate or helpful information from doctors or books. For her son’s sake, she delved deeply into the scientific and medical literature to find answers ― which led to further questions and some astonishing realizations.
