Overview

Since economic drivers now supplement nutritional value when parents make feeding decisions, What to Feed Your Baby: Cost Conscious Nutrition for Your Infant presents vital information that will help parents provide optimal nutrition for their infants in a cost effective way. The author's clear explanations and thoughtful recommendations are often surprising, occasionally startling, sometimes controversial, and always useful. Common questions are carefully answered and supplemented with charts, figures, and summaries that highlight important points.

The author's innovative, cost-sensitivemethods can save both new and seasoned parents hundreds to thousands of dollars yearly and improve their families' nutrition at the same time. His recommendations, which have received national commendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics, serve as the basis for a better understanding of the complexities of infant formula, the benefits of breastfeeding, handling allergies, introducing solid foods, and other feeding decisions, while addressing cost-sensitivity and overall nutrition for newborns and infants. Using poignant patient narratives and a conversational voice, Dr. Stan Cohen offers parents a fuller picture of the broad spectrum of eating and feeding choices facing parents today.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Based on a book that celebrated pediatric gastroenterologist Cohen wrote 30 years ago (Healthy Babies, Healthy Kids), this fact-packed resource, featuring numerous flow charts and tables (about vitamins, commercial formula comparisons, infant-growth rates, and scads of other data), covers recent and traditional pediatric nutritional science in 16 concise chapters structured in a question-and-answer format, and a thorough appendix. The author’s philosophy is reassuring: “The entire concept of parenthood is based on nourishing and nurturing your children during every aspect of their development.” An advocate of breast-feeding whose children and grandchildren were nursed, yet received supplemental formula, Cohen has also consulted with most major formula manufacturers. Breast may not be best for all mothers and babies, and chapters cover topics ranging from allergies, colic, normal weight, pooping, prematurity, and essential nutrients to timing the introduction of solid food and toddler dietary recommendations for breast- and bottle-fed infants. As an experienced doctor, Cohen has seen it all, but except for some old-fashioned wisdom found in his excellent anecdotes about babies he has successfully treated, and the helpful summary of information at each chapter’s conclusion, this volume contains more algorithms than accessible mommy-friendly advice. (July)
Jay E. Berkelhamer
What to Feed Your Baby is a beautifully written book that combines the wisdom of Dr. Cohen, a highly respected and experienced pediatric gastroenterologist, and the current science related to infant feeding. From the first decisions parents must make to the transition to toddler-hood, information is presented in a common sense and nonjudgmental style that will give the family the needed confidence to get their baby off to a well-nourished start in life. I recommend this bookfor all parents of a new baby.
Jeffrey S. Hyams
In What To Feed Your Baby, Dr. Stanley Cohen brings common sense and 3 decades of experience to help allay any fears and misinformation that parents might have. Written in a friendly and evidence based way this book accurately describes the nutritional needs of infants through the first year or two of life. Common misconceptions are discussed and attention paid to those relatively easy steps that can facilitate normal growth and development. I suspect that parents who read this book will have far fewer questions for their infant's health care provider.
Allan Walker
In this book, Dr. Stanley Cohen, a pediatric gastroenterologist and nutritionist with longstanding interest in infant nutrition, provides a practical and pragmatic approach to a major concern for new mothers, namely What to Feed Your Baby. His advice on common issues, raised by these mothers, dispels their fear about not feeding their babies properly.
Kathleen M. Zelman
The fourth trimester when the baby arrives can be a difficult time for a new mom facing important decisions about feeding her newborn. Words of wisdom, recommendations and friendly advice from Dr. Stanley Cohen take the guesswork out and provide a blue print for healthy and affordable infant nutrition. Every new mom needs a copy of this practical and great resource on her bookshelf before the baby arrives.
Melvin B. Heyman
Dr. Stan Cohen has written an exceptional book filled with practical, personalized and cost-conscious advice applicable for parents and care-providers of infants and young children. Case vignettes interspersed among scientifically sound information yield wonderful essentials for parents of healthy children and of children afflicted with common complaints and disorders in early childhood. An invaluable resource for all new parents.
Booklist
It might seem that the question of what to feed a baby can be answered simply: breast milk. Indeed, that remains the gold standard. But Cohen, a longtime pediatrician, gives a more nuanced explanation. He does recommend breastfeeding, which promotes mother-child bonding, decreases the incidence of infection, and even seems to boost IQ and reduce the risk of obesity later. But he notes that nursing “doesn’t work for all mothers.” He then presents useful information about formula. Powders, for example, are more portable and less expensive. And different varieties under the same brand name contain different ingredients. A chart compares the quantities of different vitamins and minerals in three different products by the same manufacturer. For the most part, Cohen suggests following the American Academy of Pediatrics’ recommendations in this realistic book. Parents who worry about properly and affordably feeding their infants during the first year of life, when an infant’s brain and body nearly double in size, will learn a lot from this thoroughly researched, infant-nutrition guidebook.
