Description

From the author of Expecting Better, an economist's guide to the early years of parenting.

With Expecting Better, award-winning economist Emily Oster spotted a need in the pregnancy market for advice that gave women the information they needed to make the best decision for their own pregnancies. By digging into the data, Oster found that much of the conventional pregnancy wisdom was wrong. In Cribsheet, she now tackles an even great challenge: decision-making in the early years of parenting. 

As any new parent knows, there is an abundance of often-conflicting advice hurled at you from doctors, family, friends, and the internet. From the earliest days, parents get the message that they must make certain choices around feeding, sleep, and schedule or all will be lost. There's a rule - or three - for everything. But the benefits of these choices can be overstated, and the trade-offs can be profound. How do you make your own best decision? 

Armed with the data, Oster finds that the conventional wisdom doesn't always hold up. She debunks myths around breastfeeding (not a panacea), sleep training (not so bad!), potty training (wait until they're ready or possibly bribe with M&Ms), language acquisition (early talkers aren't necessarily geniuses), and many other topics. She also shows parents how to think through freighted questions like if and how to go back to work, how to think about toddler discipline, and how to have a relationship and parent at the same time. 

Economics is the science of decision-making, and Cribsheet is a thinking-parent's guide to the chaos and frequent misinformation of the early years. Emily Oster is a trained expert - and mom of two - who can empower us to make better, less fraught decisions - and stay sane in the years before preschool.

If you are a chronic worrier like me, read this.

The author used humor mixed with data to provide peace of mind to a new parent.

Good, but it seems like there isn't a lot of data

Many of the conclusions were, "there's not enough data to know, so do whatever you want," which was a little disappointing!

biased but overall well done

This is a good book with some good advice. there are some obvious personal biases in the author's writing but she does a good job looking at different subjects from an analytical point of view. As a pediatrician I agree with most of what she says, although she does make suggestions that are skewed toward what she wants the data to be interpreted as. I would advise people to discuss things with their doctor before making decisions. But altogether one of the better books on this topic.

Great content, cloying narration

I like Emily Oster’s work and enjoyed this book. Unlike the matter-of-fact content, the narration sounds like a patronising, condescending morning talk show host.

biased

I thought the research and conclusions were biased on the authors preferences. There are hugely important topics that are not even covered that have to do with some of the topics that she covers. It's too charged with personal references and sometimes the language and allegories that she uses put down other choices. It has good info here and there but overall it is underwhelming.

helpful and data-driven

I wish this book had been out when my first child was born, but even the second time around it was helpful for mythbusting and putting my mind at ease

informative!

Loved this book, shows the data on common misconspetions about parenting. Why do something if there's no data to prove it??

Great read!!!

Definitely a great listen for anyone expecting or has a new baby. Some of the modern recommendations are b.s. and she explains why (research is mostly bad). This book makes is MUCH easier to make parenting decisions.

Underwhelmed compared to Emily’s first book

But it should be expected. Since it’s impossible to conduct RCT on parenting. My high hope for this book probably says more about my struggle with sleep training.

Best baby book ever

I’m about to become a mom, and I swear I have read every possible book available. While there are definitely things you might read in addition: specific things about preschool for example if you want to choose one, If you want one book that covers all the basics about dealing with your baby in a way that isn’t biased or condescending or judgmental, this is it.

Complety and utterly useless.

I got this book excited to have my doubts lifted with data-driven approach. How wrong i was. Basically 80 percent of all questions asked in the book resulted in "i dunno, decide for yourself". The two definite answers i got - vaccines are good, reading to your child is good. This books reads like an ad for much better books and it's data-driven analysis is hardly useful.

Another annoyance was amount of personal anecdotes in the book. It's like author wanted to write an autobiography, but realized, that her life is not all that exciting, so she masked it as a parenting book.
