Overview

The result is a refreshingly engaging and informative guide-that includes all you need to know at each age and stage of your child's first year. Drawing on the latest medical recommendations and his experiences at home and in the office, Dr. Cohen covers everything from preparing for your baby's arrival to introducing her to a new sibling, to those three basic functions that will come to dominate a new parent's life. Eat, Sleep, Poop addresses questions, strategies, myths, and all aspects of your child's development. In each instance, Dr. Cohen provides a thorough overview and a simple answer or explanation: a "common sense bottom line," yet he doesn't dictate. The emphasis is on doing what is medically sound and what works best for you and your baby. He also includes fact sheets, easy-to-follow diagnosis and treatment guides, and humorous daddy vs. doctor sidebars that reveal the learning curve during his first year as a dad.

Lively, practical, and reassuring, Eat, Sleep, Poop provides the knowledge you need to parent with confidence, to relax and enjoy baby's first year, and to raise your child with the best tool a parent can have: informed common sense.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Eat, Sleep, Poop should be every new parent’s bedside staple. I would have loved to have this book 3 years ago when my son was born, but I still find it very helpful now! Dr. Cohen has succeeded in bringing readers a comprehensive book of must-have baby information, tips, recommendations, and heartwarming personal stories to help parents and their babies flourish through the first year together. This is the book I will be buying for everyone I know who is about to have a baby.”
—Kim Barnouin, coauthor of The New York Times bestseller Skinny Bitch

“Dr. Scott Cohen has managed to condense everything parents need to know for their baby’s first year into a fun and readable guide. Today’s parents have more questions than ever and Dr. Cohen answers them all in this handy, readable book. I will be recommending this one to parents for years to come.” — Dr. Jenn Berman, author of SuperBaby: 12 Ways to Give Your Child a Head Start in the First 3 Years and The A to Z Guide to Raising Happy Confident Kids

Publishers Weekly
Cohen, a Beverly Hills pediatrician on the Cedars Sinai Medical Center teaching staff, penned this guide during his daughter’s first year of life. Neither starchy reference tome nor sentimental diary, the book weaves useful facts and information with Cohen’s often comical, personal accounts of being a regular dad who is also a pediatrician (sidebars called “Daddy vs. Doctor” probe such topics as sleeping through the night, Apgar scores, and birthmarks). In keeping with the book’s title, Cohen maintains that three mundane activities—eating, sleeping, and defecating—make up “most of baby’s agenda.” He devotes a good portion of his text to these three subjects, but also delves into a flurry of other concerns, such as vaccinations, why babies cry, and what to do about colic (presenting a viable theory relating to stress). For each issue, Cohen concludes with “common sense bottom line” summaries, advising parents to stick to the essentials, whether planning a nursery or choosing a pediatrician. Doing what works for one’s individual family is what counts—for instance, he counsels moms that breast is best but not to feel guilty if they choose to bottle-feed. Cohen’s practical approach is sure to pacify and entertain first-time parents who can easily become overwhelmed by both the joys and challenges of baby’s first year. (Apr.)

I could not have made it through the first few months and first couple illnesses with my baby boy. The book provides a pediatrician's perspective as well as a new dad's and the advice is solid and resonates with parenting common sense. Almost every question I've had is addressed by the author. This is a must have reference!

I thought this book was a very helpful, realistic quick reference. It's not as detailed as "What to Expect..." or some of the other books written by doctors, but that's what I liked about it. I recommend having this book along with another more extensive book. I've given this to all my pregnant friends.
