Item Description...
“What a lovely and lyrical way to usher in a baby and celebrate the unfolding stages of parenting.” —Janet Chan, editorial director, the Parenting Group

Baby Blessings highlights the wonders of babyhood with classic and new poems, lullabies, and blessings for every stage of baby's life, from pregnancy to infanthood to the toddler years. Featuring contributions from such well-known names as Dr. Spock, Brahms, and Rami Shapiro, Baby Blessings also includes special sections for baby-naming ceremonies, christenings, and other precious moments.

Baby Blessings provides inspiration and joyful reflections for the new mother just beginning to explore the miraculous experience of birth and motherhood, as well as the seasoned mom who wants to recapture the priceless emotions of those early days. Parents will treasure this collection for years to come.

Our Wish for You
May you always see beauty in the world
And hear music every day.
May you know the touch of gentle hands
And walk the peaceful way.
May the words you speak be loving,
May laughter see you through.
May you be blessed with hope and joy—
These gifts we wish for you.
Theresa Mary Grass

For a Good Sweet Cry...  Mar 9, 2006
I bought this book for myself 4 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I read it and would cry and cry at the absolute sweetness of the poetry. The people who wrote these pieces totally and completely understood what I was feeling during my pregnancy -- the bliss, the aprehension, the anticipation. After I had my boy, I picked the book up again, and now a whole different section of the book made me cry. Then he turned one, and the book hit me again. Now 4 years later, I just bought the book for 3 of my friends, 2 who are pregnant, and one who has a 1-year old. They are all sobbing. They are not sad poems at all, quite the contrary. They are full of real moments of unadulterated preciousnesses, that force one to sit and fully feel the love we have for our children and for pregancy and for every little quiet personal moment. I literally cannot open the book without feeling overwhelmed with love and without needing to absolutely bury my sweet boy in kisses.
Great gift for New Parents  Aug 19, 2003
I purchased this book on the recommendation of a friend. I gave it to my son and daughter-in-law before the birth of their first child. They were both thrilled with the book and, in turn, purchased it for a couple they knew were having a child. It is a soothing and magical must read. It is relaxing and thought provoking. It reminds us of what is truly important in this life and the great blessing we can experience with the celebration of life. It is one of those rare finds that you never tire of and with each re-read, you smile again and say "Ah, yes". Eleanor Manning, Author, Voices.
Beautiful Gift Book Captures the Richness of Babyhood  Jul 21, 2003
I bought this book for myself and keep buying copies for gifts-for a sister-in-law who's a new mom, for my mother, my children's pediatrician, one for my obstetrician, and additional copies for dear friends who are mothers. The book is lovely and its subject timeless--a perfect little gift.
I've come to expect a lot from June Cotner's anthologies, and the quality of writing found in BABY BLESSINGS is no exception to her other rich and delightful compilations. This one captures every stage of babyhood from every vantage point and is my favorite of all, perhaps because BABY BLESSINGS is enhanced by a particularly endearing cover, the photograph of an adorable unclothed baby with the David Beckham hair!
It's all here.  Jul 11, 2003
I didn't expect to sit down and read this book from cover to cover, but I did. I am often skeptical about books that claim to be inspiring, but I was impressed. From the poem PREGNANCY to YOU-AND-I, NURSING to NORMAL CHANGES, I was connecting with everything I cherish about being a mother. The selected poems and writings will touch every mother-to-be and serve as a heartfelt reminder to those of us who remember the early days with our babies. No matter the age of our children, the love and hope we hold for them remains and this collection is a reflection of that love and hope. I must quickly finish this review so I can re-read Baby Blessings! (p.s. Every mother - new or not-so-new - would treasure this collection.)
