From the Back Cover

The comprehensive month-by-month guide that clearly explains everything parents need to know about the first year with a new baby.

Featuring a practical, illustrated Baby Care Primer, a First Aid Guide, and Best-Odds Recipes.

With special sections on the older sibling; selecting the right physician; seasonal concerns and traveling with baby; managing childhood illnesses; and nurturing the adopted baby, the low-birthweight infant, and the baby with specific problems.

"Unquestionably the best book for parents of infants in their first year of life that I have had the pleasure to read." (Morris Green, M.D., Perry W. Lesh Professor of Pediatrics, Indiana University Medical Center)

"This complete, practical, and unique book will help parents prevent or solve the problems of caring for a newborn infant through the first year of life...I love it!" (Ruth A. Lawrence, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, Obstetrics & Gynecology, University of Rochester Medical Center)

To help you become the best-equipped parents possible, here is a complete first-year manual from the authors of What to Expect When You're Expecting, America's pregnancy bible. Includes thorough information on baby's monthly growth and development, feeding, sleeping habits, infant illnesses, and safety.

-How do I cope with my colicky baby?

-How do I know when my baby is really sick and when I should call a doctor?

-How can I get my baby to sleep through the night?

-When is the best time to wean my baby?

-Why am I still having contractions now that I've delivered?

-When am I going to start feeling like a parent?

-How do I decide when to go back to work?
