Being a Mom myself I know how hard it is to bring up the kids these days. Whether you are a working mom or a stay at home mom we all have anxieties, queries, and issues. Sometimes it’s always better to be prepared from before and start finding some books to read for New Parents. With nuclear families, we often tend to google about every small thing but even google can be contradictory and asking a doctor for every doubt is not possible. That’s when a good reliable book comes to help.From how to start solids, potty train, communicate with them, patience etc.
Sometimes all we need is a book to realize that we are not alone and there is a problem with every solution. I have read a couple of books myself. Some made me laugh a lot and some left a lot to be desired. So you can spend a lot of time reading books to find that perfect for yourself or you can just read the below list because I have really made an effort to gather this list !!!!
So here’s are the 10 Books To Read for New Parents!!!

Unconditional Parenting by Alfie Kohn
This book is amazing. It has brought me to think so fundamentally about how I parent and what our actions really say to our children. I am so inspired by the ideas Kohn puts out there in this book. I feel inspired to find the strength to do better than what I myself have experienced, and through awareness and really contemplating what unconditional love looks/sounds/feels like, I have come to an understanding. I can see how I want to manifest unconditional love in my family, through my own actions and intentions with my child. He is truly a gem with so much to share. I wasn’t head over heels for this book at the beginning, it is forthright a little dense, but once I started opening up to what he has to say my mind starting shifting and moving and growing. I think everyone, parent or not, should be asking these questions of themselves according to the kind of world they have a part in creating.
My Child Won’t Eat by Carlos
This is a book every parent should read, seriously. Because even if you don’t have a picky eater now, most of them will suddenly eat not as much at some point and this book completely dissolves all your worry. I already practice lots of the parenting principles the book is inline with and have read a lot of primary literature on this relevant topic in my own research but still, I learned something new and it was very reassuring. We really just need to relax and give our children a healthy environment full of healthy choices and they will take care of it themselves. We really need to trust our own physiology – I cannot stress this enough in any aspect of modern parenting. This book is super fun and easy to read too, I find myself trying not to laugh aloud with my baby sleeping in my arms. The epilogue, in the end, was also fun and a surprise component in parenting books – it is time we reflect on our mainstream parenting practice and starts relying on physiology and neuroscience and real research, instead of neighbor’s advice or magazine articles or some so-called “experts” who never studied infant development.
