Important words.

Probably one of the most reassuring things I have read in a baby book since getting pregnant:

“But too many parents don’t seem to understand this. They fear that if they’re not keeping up with the latest books and theories on parenting, and applying them to their children immediately, they’re negligent somehow. They’re not.
So we want to make a point up front, because if we’re about to give you more than a hundred pages of parenting ” advice,” we want to make sure that you understand that, should you not follow our advice, it would not imply you are a “bad” parent. Because chances are, as long as you are a thoughtful parent with positive intentions, your child is going to be just fine.”

From The Newborn Sleep Book, by Dr. Lewis Jassey and Dr. Johnathan Jassey.
