When babies cry, frustrated parents often tell each other: "If only our angel could talk!" In fact, baby is talking, and clever parents can decipher the language. For babies who consider diaper time a pain in the butt, this book's tips can smooth away the tears. Here too are suggestions for dealing with colic, teething, and many of baby's other irritations. Moms and dads sometimes find their kids resisting the recommendations and strategies proposed by childcare specialists. That's when it's time to turn to Last Straw Strategies , a series of lighthearted books filled with practical, old-fashioned wisdom that has passed down through the ages. A longtime journalist and an experienced mom, Michelle Kennedy offers pragmatic solutions instead of fashionable psychological theory. Her user-friendly books contain sound suggestions for relieving three of the most common frustrations suffered by new parents: crying, eating problems, and sleeping problems. Her attitude--infused with wit, energy, and compassion--is perfectly complemented by humorous two-color line illustrations that appear with most of her examples. Parents might want to laugh at some of the proposed solutions, but their laughs will become delighted smiles when they discover that the solutions really work!
