Heading Home with Your Newborn
From Birth to Reality
This fully updated guide offers "parent-tested, pediatrician-approved" advice for new parents finding themselves overwhelmed with the reality of caring for a baby in the first eight weeks of its life. The second edition features a wealth of new information on topics such as vaccines, child care providers, babies and learning, car seats, safe sleep, cord blood, what to keep in the medicine cabinet, postpartum depression, and organic formulas. With wit and humor, the pediatrician moms allay the feelings of anxiety, guilt, and inadequacy that inevitably plague first-time parents home alone with a newborn, providing authoritative yet compassionate advice for the sleep-deprived and overwhelmed. From "Going with the Flow" (the trials of breastfeeding) and "What Goes in Must Come Out" (a discussion of "pee and poop") to "Fever: Trial by Fire" and "Seeing Yellow: Jaundice," this handbook provides solid, practical, balanced guidance that will enable parents to feel confident about their parenting skills.
