Five best books for second (or third)-time parents

4. Touchpoints, by T. Berry Brazelton. This classic was one book among many during my first pregnancy, but has proved unusually useful on return visits. For child No. 3, I’m finding Brazelton’s guidelines on what to expect at different ages particularly helpful. I don’t need to be reminded how to nurse and diaper a child, for instance, but I did appreciate being reminded to expect a growth spurt (and accompanying appetite surge) when the baby was 2 weeks old.
