Baby Matters

Posted by Sandra on October 16, 2008

ABOUT THE BOOK, Baby Matters

“The extensively documented Baby Matters… could serve as an attachment parenting primer, covering breastfeeding, bonding, and cosleeping. Palmer also pays a lot of attention to food allergies and immunity protection. ” — Mothering magazine

“The greatest discovery is that the science supports natural, instinctual parenting over all else.”    – Dr. Linda F. Palmer

  • Today our newest neurological studies and hormonal findings serve to re-prove what the attachment psychologists were trying to tell us in 60’s and 70’s.
  • What has come to be known as “Attachment Parenting” more often develops children who actually become more independent, as well as healthier and more psychologically secure.


Parents have been encouraged that responding to their baby’s pleas for affection and attention would only “spoil” them. Yet, I have found no sound research to support any long-term benefits from such detached parenting. In fact, a mountain of studies suggest quite the opposite — that responsive parenting is best.
