Publisher's Summary

À la carte wisdom from the international best seller Bringing up Bébé.

In Bringing up Bébé, journalist and mother Pamela Druckerman investigated a society of good sleepers, gourmet eaters, and mostly calm parents. She set out to learn how the French achieve all this, while telling the story of her own young family in Paris. 

Bébé Day by Day distills the lessons of Bringing up Bébé into an easy-to-listen-to guide for parents and caregivers. How do you teach your child patience? How do you get him to like broccoli? How do you encourage your baby to sleep through the night? How can you have a child and still have a life?

Alongside these time-tested lessons of French parenting are favorite recipes straight from the menus of the Parisian crèche and winsome drawings by acclaimed French illustrator Margaux Motin. 

Witty, pithy, and brimming with common sense, Bébé Day by Day offers a mix of practical tips and guiding principles to help parents find their own way.

Includes a bonus PDF of recipes and meal plans. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

A summary of bringing home bebe

The book was easy to listen to and go through but it basically summarized the points from Bringing Home Bebe (which I had already read). It didnt teach me anything or give me tools and clear how to's at all. It just was a Cliffs note follow up to the other book which was more entertaining to read

A listing guide

This book is basically like a quick summary of her first book only stating the main parenting strategies of the first.

Wow!

I really enjoyed this book. It is short and sweet and nice reminder that kids deserve the same respect as any adult. It is very similar to the Gerber and Montessori philosophy.

Best advice for new parents!

I cannot recommend this book enough. It’s the cliffnotes version so if you only have an hour or two, do it! The full version explains the research behind it which my analytical brain loved, but this was a great reminder of what to do/not to do for my baby #2 on the way.

Repeat of first book

This is a good book if you liked her fist book...however it’s a full repeat with very little or no new information at all. I enjoyed her first book so I did like it but was expecting something new in addition. Good for very new parents.

just awesome

I loved both of her books and was looking forward to listing to these on my commute to work or my night time routine. Well explained concepts and great comparison. The narrator was phenomenal!
