Product Description

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.

Reassuring answers to 12 months of concerns:

-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?

About the Author

It all started with a baby…and a book. Heidi Murkoff conceived the idea for What to Expect When You're Expecting during her first pregnancy, when she couldn’t find answers to her questions or reassurance for her worries in the books she’d turned to for much-needed advice. Determined to write a guide that would help other expectant parents sleep better at night, Heidi delivered the proposal for What to Expect When You’re Expecting just hours before delivering her daughter, Emma.

Dubbed the “pregnancy bible”, the iconic New York Times bestseller is now in its all-new fourth edition, with over 17 million copies in print, and according to USA Today, is read by 93 percent of women who read a pregnancy book. Other titles in the series include Eating Well When You’re Expecting, What to Expect the First Year, What to Expect Before You’re Expecting (a complete preconception plan), and the newest member of the What to Expect family: What to Expect the Second Year, the must-have guide for parents of toddlers. The What to Expect books have sold more than 34 million copies in the US alone, and are published in over 30 languages.

In 2005, Heidi expanded the What to Expect (WTE) brand online with WhatToExpect.com – the interactive, state-of-the-internet companion to the WTE books, and home to a vibrant, vast, yet close-knit community of 3 million parents. In 2009, WTE went mobile with the WTE Pregnancy Tracker (the most popular pregnancy app in the world), the WTE Fertility Tracker, the WTE Baby Name Finder, and the WTE First Year Tracker.
Heidi’s passionate commitment to moms and babies led to the creation of the What to Expect Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping underserved families expect healthy pregnancies, safe deliveries, and healthy, happy babies. With a beautiful, culturally appropriate low-literac

Format: Paperback
This is a book of advice, not gospel. There are three ways to look at each piece of advice as you read this book, all positive:

1. Something new that you regard as a good idea and try to incorporate into your parenting style.
2. Something that you already know and do, but isn't it nice to have it confirmed?!
3. Something that you disagree with, but can spark a great conversation with your spouse or other parents about why you think it's a bad idea, and how it should be done differently. Nothing wrong with good conversation about parenting.

I am grateful for having read this book as my first daughter grew over her first year. It is important that parents are critical of their own skills, and this book helps the process.

This book was invaluable in diagnosing my son with reflux. The sickness lists at the back alone are worth the cost of the book.

The book tells you the milestones the baby may reach each month. Also it has lots of answers to the questions you may have. My baby is three month old now. I found answers to most of my questions in this book.

Like the first book in the series, it really helps to know what to expect. It doesn't come across as black and white. Sometimes it's a little repetitive with the what you can expect at this stage, but hey they're covering their bases as baby vary in their development!
