National Award of Excellence for New Author

(SCOTTSDALE, AZ) Scottsdale baby care expert Blythe Lipman was honored today as a winner of the 2005 Parent-to-Parent Adding Wisdom Award. Jodie Lynn, syndicated parenting/health expert and CEO/founder of the Adding Wisdom Award writes: "Amusing. Full of facts, some humor, which always helps in times of stress. A great treasure for new moms and dads to read before baby…a keeper! (

Lipman’s book, "Help! My Baby Came Without Instructions," is a quick-and-easy guide for new parents facing common, but often overwhelming problems with babies, including crying, sleeping, eating, bathing, and many others. Lipman has managed preschool infant rooms for two decades and cared for over a thousand babies. The book is based on proven techniques she developed in her career. Lipman says, "I’m honored that people who really know about parenting selected my book for this award. Parents are usually unprepared for dealing with a screaming, hungry, tired baby. My book gives them lists of simple, proven tricks to make their baby happy."

The national Adding Wisdom Awards honors products of outstanding quality that support family life. Categories include books, magazines, health, toys, websites, and media programs, among others. Winners are selected each year by a national panel of judges, including parents, teachers, librarians, pediatricians, psychologists, media critics, and child care directors. These committees look for products that entertain and teach, inspiring imagination and creativity. Additionally, the committees select products that help children grow ethically, socially, intellectually, emotionally and physically. After the committees approve products, the items are then given to Family Testers - real families – for testing and evaluation before final decisions are reached.

The Parent to Parent Adding Wisdom Awards were established in 1998 and is the only awards program to ever be honored by Disney.

Lipman’s book is available in bookstores and online at and
