Sometimes learning to feed our children correctly seems harder than learning to teach them to walk, talk or tie their shoes. Not only must we overcome our own bad eating habits, but learn about basic child psychology just to get them to eat a carrot. It can be exhausting, and thatís when it becomes oh, so easy to reach for the junk food.

Thatís when ďThe Brazelton WayĒ comes to the rescue, this time with a book called Feeding Your Child, devoted entirely to the proper feeding of children from birth to age five. Americaís most trusted pediatrician, T. Berry Brazelton, has once again teamed up with Harvard Medical School professor of psychiatry Joshua D. Sparrow to offer parents all the information they need to get children to eat the right foods, at the right times, with minimal fuss.

Not only does this book detail the different food needs of children from birth to childhood, but it also provides great techniques for getting children to try new things, adapt to feeding times, overcome food fears and so much more. AND there is even a ton of info on how to avoid, and deal with, food allergies and stomach ailments so typical in little tots.

Chapters include "A Parentís First Job," "The Touchpoints of Feeding," "Feeding Problems and Solutions," and cover just about anything food-related you can imagine, including breastfeeding, moving to solid foods, gagging and stomach upsets, allergic reactions, vitamin supplementation and food safety issues.

Once again, when it comes to raising children, nobody does it better than the Brazelton team, and Feeding Your Child is another great addition to any parentís bookshelf. Believe me, it will get used.
