The Essential Guide to Baby's First Year
Published by Alpha
From the moment your baby is born, she depends on you for every aspect of her care and well-being. The next 12 months are exhilarating and exhausting, with more than a few sleepless nights and stressful moments. If you're already feeling overwhelmed, you're not alone.
The next best thing to a personal on-call pediatrician, The Essential Guide to Baby's First Year outlines the milestones your baby will go through during her first year so you know what to expect when. You'll find suggestions on establishing schedules and sleep routines, guidance on feeding your baby and introducing her to solid foods, and tips for understanding what your baby needs when she cries -- and how to get her to stop. In addition, you get the latest information on vaccines and advice on what to do if your baby gets sick. Information on handling teething, discovering and diagnosing food allergies, and baby-proofing your home when your baby becomes mobile are included, along with fun ideas for playing and interacting with your baby and helping her develop her motor skills.
Written by a top-rated pediatrician and based on expert medical knowledge, The Essential Guide to Baby's First Year offers first-time parents a companion through the sleeping and crawling, crying and teething illnesses and everything else that comes with your baby's first year of life.
