What to Expect the First Yearby Arlene Eisenberg, Sandee E. Hathaway, Heidi Murkoff, Sandee Hathaway
From the authors of the bestselling What to Expect When You're Expecting comes the most comprehensive guide available on the next phase of parenting-newborn care. The authors have made the first year easier for parents by advocating a common-sense, you-can-do-it approach to parenthood. The volume is encyclopedic in its coverage, leading parents from month to month, check-up to check-up, even feeding to feeding. Sections cover sleeping habits, infant illnesses, safety, postpartum depression (for mom and dad), traveling with baby, seasonal care, first food recipes, common home remedies and a chart of common childhood illnesses. Through consultation with top specialists and scrupulous attention to detail, the team succeeds in providing the most up-to-date information on every area of post-pregnancy and infant care. Winner of the 1994 Parenting "Hall of Fame" Award from Child Magazine's Child's Best Parenting Book Award.
