Parenting a Baby Part 2: Parenting Collections @ OPL

Oakland's libraries have parenting materials that will answer questions you may have about raising a baby.

Is your baby having trouble sleeping through the night?  Is breastfeeding not going well?  How and when do you introduce food to babies?  What are the appropriate developmental stages babies go through and when should babies go through them?  Can babies learn sign language?  And, of course, a topic close to my heart, how do you read to a baby?

Raising a baby is hard work and we are here to help.  Last month I highlighted  some of the programs we offer babies and their families.  This month, we look at some of the materials we offer.  All of Oakland's libraries have parenting books, magazines and DVDs that can help you figure out how to best care for a baby and answer any questions you might have.  In fact, we have parenting materials for all ages of children and all kinds of families.   Just go to our home page at www.oaklandlibrary.org and key in your search topic or ask a librararian for help.

Here are some of our favorite parenting books about babies.  What are some of yours?

I was having breast feeding

I was having breast feeding problems for weeks after I gave birth. I went down the local library and found a book on breast feeding. It was so insightful and the tips I got from the book worked a treat!
