I'm definitely FOR attachment parenting styles so I love him. I haven't read a single one of his books though. I just read from his website. I really should order a few books. I haven't read this entire thread but does he have any good gentle discipline books or something that can help me learn how to handle tantrums?

From your posts I can see you would totally love his books.. he has one just for discipline @ http://www.askdrsears.com/html/6/T060100.asp & amazon

I have his baby book (it's about 4 inches thick!) sleep book, discipline, and attachment parenting book. His wife (nurse, lactation consultant, mom of 8) cowrites a lot of his books

& if any of you have seen that show "The Doctors" (that Dr Phil spinoff), his son a pediatrician is one of the 4 doctors.

Not a book, but you mind find these articles helpful/interesting.

Thanks to both of you!! I don't have time to read now but I bookmarked it all so I can read later. Dealing with tantrums and spurts of anger coming from Emma has been quite baffling for me because I really have no clue how to handle it. I hope I can learn a few things from those links..

I really like Dr Sears. Not sure how prepared I would have been with this baby if I hadn't read about high need babies before having this one.
If I had to give a mom-to-be advice it would be to read up on that, and plan for a high needs baby ( because if you don't get one you'll still be well prepared).

Thank you! I found the links really interesting and realised that in the sense of being laid back and acknowledging that baby is upset, giving love affection and always being positive is exactly what I do naturally. I think I need to read more as I'm not sure I agree with all parts of this theory but certainly when my son is upset I am always holding him close and I tell him Mammy is helping him. I would never raise my voice to him and am always calm in response to situations involving him. So its nice that this kind of validates what I do. xx

Useful links posted. I have a book on this but there was more in them links. I am glad i have followed natural parenting for a long time as it appears to be working for us. Much more peaceful and I like that route.
