Books on babies.. have you read?

I am interested in seeing if other people have read any of these books and what they think. I have only read one parenting book so far, but I have looked online for short articles here and there. I think its best to go with what feels right for you, but getting some guidance isn't a bad thing either. The first three are more about signals babies send, and the second three are more about how to "train" the baby.

1. What Babies Say Before They Can Talk : The Nine Signals Infants Use to Express Their Feelings

2. The Secret Language of Babies: The Body Language of Little Bodies
This one I could not find much about, but it seems to be the most interesting one.

3. Dunstan Baby Language -- Learn the universal language of newborn babies

4. The No-Cry Sleep Solution: Gentle Ways to Help Your Baby Sleep Through the Night

5. The Happiest Baby on the Block: The New Way to Calm Crying and Help Your Newborn Baby Sleep Longer

6. On Becoming Babywise

The last one I have checked out and started to read. I already have on opinion. But I will wait to see what other have to say. If you haven't read them look up reviews and tell me what you think! Leave a link of its a good one. If you have any thoughts or tips to share please do! About sleeping, feeding or whatever.

ps: I couldnt get the fonts to all be the same... not sure why. sorry about the yelling.

The most thorough site related to Babywise is .

I've heard a lot of good things about infant communication books you listed, but haven't read them myself.

I read Baby Whisperer with my first. It helped a bunch. But by the time I got to baby #4 I didn't follow it so much and went with my own thing. ;)

Ok, I'm going to try something new tonight. Every evening Adeline gets very fussy and acts like she wants to eat, but I don't feed her unless it's been 2 1/2 - 3 hours since I was trying to do the Babywise stuff. However, last night I was looking online and saw that many breastfed babies cluster feed in the evenings to try and store up for the night ahead. I'm going to try feeding her everytime she asks for it this evening and see if that helps her sleep through the night longer. I'll let you know how it goes!
