As the founder of Resources for Infant Educarers (RIE), Magda Gerber spent decades helping new mothers and fathers give their children the best possible start in life. Her successful parenting approach harnesses the power of this basic fact: Your baby is unique and will grow in confidence if allowed to develop at his or her own pace. The key to successful parenting is learning to observe your child and to trust him or her to be an initiator, an explorer--a self-learner with an individual style of problem solving and mastery.
Now you can discover the acclaimed RIE approach. This practical and enlightening guide will help you:
Develop your own observational skills
Learn when to intervene with your baby and when not to
Find ways to connect with your baby through daily caregiving routines such as feeding, diapering, and bathing
Effectively handle common problems such as crying, discipline, sleep issues, toilet learning, and much more

I tried the advice and am able to change diapers with a cooperative smiling child 90% of the time and how to respond confidently when the 10% occurs!
Being a first time Mom, this has been my go to parenting 101 handbook!
I would also recommend Janet Lansbury's books, blogs, website, for help with contemporary issues.
