"Instinctive Parenting is a seriously fun romp through those querulous topics we love to chat about on message boards or at the bar where our babies are perched precariously on a stool (kidding)." — Long Q&A on True/Slant.
"In her excellent, fun-to-read new book, Instinctive Parenting: Trusting Ourselves to Raise Good Kids. Calhoun argues that with all the conflicting “expert” advice (Cry it out! No, co-sleep!), we parents are just driving ourselves nuts. As long as you love your kids, whatever you think is best probably is." — Really nice discussion on Strollerderby.
"I worked with Ada Calhoun at Babble, so I’m happily familiar with her refreshing and straightforward, no BS parenting philosophy. Today Calhoun’s book, Instinctive Parenting: Trusting Ourselves to Raise Good Kids ($15.64) is hitting the shelves (Gallery, 2010) so the rest of you can kick back with a cup of coffee and enjoy the hilarious and insightful Gen X parenting book that reassures us we’re all doing just fine, thank you very much." — Q&A about sleep training on Cafe Mom.
