Synopses & Reviews
Everything new parents need to know about the care (and feeding) of an infant, from the authors of What to Expect® When You're Expecting. Covers monthly growth and development, feeding for every age and stage, sleep strategies that really work.
Filled with the most practical tips (how to give a bath, decode your baby's crying, what to buy for baby, and when to return to work) and the most up-to-date medical advice (the latest on vaccines, vitamins, illnesses, SIDS, safety, and more).
Reassuring Answers to Hundreds of Questions:
The only book on infant care to address the physical as well as the emotional needs of the entire family.
America's bestselling guide to caring for a baby is now better than ever: announcing a two-years-in-the-making, cover-to-cover, line-by-line revision and update of the 6.9-million-copy What to Expect the First Year, the bible for taking care of a newborn through the milestone of his or her first birthday.
The Second Edition incorporates the most recent developments in pediatric medicine. Every question and answer have been revisited, and in response to letters from readers, dozens of new Q&As have been added. The book is more reader-friendly than ever, with updated cultural references, and the new material brings more in-depth coverage to issues such as newborn screening, home births and the resulting at-home newborn care, vitamins and vaccines, milk allergies, causes of colic, sleep problems, SIDS, returning to work, dealing with siblings, weaning, sippy cups, the expanded role of the father, and much more. An updated cover and all-new black-and-white line illustrations complement the fresher book with a fresher look.
DESCRIPTION Complete and up-to-date, What to Expect the First Year is like having a pediatrician, psychologist, and an Earth Mommy on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The voice is friendly, supportive, and authoritative, taking parents month by month through the first year of their baby's life, and beyond. They have questions: When can my baby start solids? Are walkers safe for my baby? How can I help my baby lose her fear of the bath? This month my baby has forgotten skills he learned last month--is there something wrong with him? The book has answers. Plus full information on starting baby on solids, traveling with baby, environmental hazards, doctor's check-ups, immunizations, first aid, and childhood illnesses and their treatment.
