Reviews - What do customers think about Kiss Guide to Baby & Child Care (Keep It Simple Series)?
Written with Political Agenda in mind Jan 17, 2004
My husband and I just recently had our first child and we have done a great deal of research. I purchased this book because I have had good experiences with this series. However, this book seemed to present opinions rather than different options. For example, the book devotes a great deal of time to environmental problems with disposable diapers and not much time on how to change diapers, preventing a diaper rash, etc.. I was especially disappointed with the section regarding sleeping location. There are many studies that support the increased likelihood of sudden infant death syndrome in babies that share a bed with his/her parents. This book downplayed those studies and encouraged bed sharing. The author used a home movie that a movie producer shot of him, his wife, and baby as proof that bed sharing is appropriate. The book should not have downplayed the outcome of many studies and the recommendations of many professional organizations. I felt as though it was irresponsible.
I was very disappointed and wondered how much other information was presented as non-biased information when it was far from being non-biased. I really wish I could return this book and get back my money. I don't want to donate it to the library for fear that someone will read it without looking at other sources of information.

This book wasn't helpful to me at all. The advice is impractical, and trite.
