Product Description

Review

Dr. Paul, an expert in pediatrics, has written a ground-breaking book about the importance of childhood/infant health in preventing illness and ensuring wellness later on in life. An accessible and valuable resource for doctors, psychiatrists, paramedics and parents around the world, this book should be used by organizations to further global initiatives relating to pediatric health on the international stage, the main specialized bodies of the United Nations, UNICEF and WHO in particular.  If you are one of the believers of my own quote on this very subject: "A SOUND MIND COULD ONLY BE FOUND IN A SOUND BODY", then I strongly recommend that you should carefully read and digest this innovative book by Dr. Paul accordingly.

Format: Paperback
Title of the book: Baby Comes Home; a parent's guide to a healthy and well first eighteen months

Author: Dr Paul Roumeliotis

Publisher: Influence Publishing

Publishing Date: 2014

ISBN: 978-1-77141-072-4

Summary:

Unlike most baby care books, expert pediatrician and health communicator DR. PAUL Roumeliotis takes a unique approach by emphasizing what scientific advances have confirmed-that what happens early on in life affects one's overall health decades down the road. Baby Comes Home communicates the latest science that explains how positive or negative early childhood experiences can have lifelong consequences.

The book begins by describing the vital changes that occur in a baby's brain during the first 18 months. It then explores the new "Science of TLC," that shows how tender, loving, and caring relationships with babies help to positively shape their brains. The book then presents important practical information on safety in the home and outdoors, baby routines/patterns, immunizations, injury prevention, nutrition, and more.

To complete this useful guide, DR.PAUL also reviews common baby care issues and concerns as well as illnesses and conditions commonly seen during the first few years of life. Whether you're a parent, grandparent, daycare teacher or child caregiver, this book is an excellent reference resource for your baby's current and future health, wellness and prosperity.

Even though I have three children, I still feel like I'm learning new things about parenting every day! You would think by my third baby I would have it somewhat figured out but Jax is a totally different baby than my first two. He has his own set of issues and challenges and so while I have the experience of the first two to reference; it doesn't mean he will do the same things.

Even in the seven years since having my first, so much has changed and new information is learned every day in the world of baby. Baby Comes Home by Dr. Paul explores the baby's first eighteen months in a truly unique way.

I really like the way this book was written, more like a conversation than a textbook like so many baby books are. It just reads in terms that are normal and simple without overcomplicating things. I actually thought much of it was common sense but some people have limited or even no experience with babies before becoming parents themselves. This will literally tell them everything they need to know.

While a lot of it was what I already knew when it came to the basics like care and feeding of newborns, there were a few sections that were of particular interest to me as a third time parent like common illnesses and conditions. Jax has been a lot sicker than my first two ever were. This section goes through all the illnesses they are likely to get in their first year and a half with descriptions of each.

The other sections I really liked were on growth and development. I can't remember what age my other two did certain milestones or what Jax should be doing by thirteen months. It's nice to read and know where he's on track and areas that I should be working with him.

I would say that Dr. Paul is a little bit old school in his approach and I like that!

(written by Josie-Lina Miron)

I ran a day-care with two other people in a centre that provided structured learning and social development opportunities for children from two (2) to four (4) years of age. My specialty was with babies from the age of one to eighteen months.

I wish I had this reference book back in the day when I ran my daycare. Having read both The Secret Life of the Unborn Child by T. Verny and What to Expect When You’re Expecting , I found that Baby Comes Home values the importance of the pregnancy similar to The Unborn Child and gives proven facts and information necessary for the baby’s first eighteen months and more than prepares any parent and/or caregiver. I highly recommend this book as it is a fascinating, well documented, reference guide where, if it concern’s a baby’s first two years, you’ll find the answers to all your questions.

Even though my children are older than 18 months I still wanted to read this book to see what I can learn from it. I learned a lot actually, for example, I learned that dark circles under the eyes can mean that a child might be prone to certain allergic conditions. That kind of thing is helpful for any parent to know no matter the children's age because you'll know what signs look out for. There are so many tips on preparing for baby and keeping baby safe at home and even outside the home. There are short lists of some developmental milestones by age from birth until eighteen months. The last part of the book (my favorite part) is about common illnesses and conditions and some tips on what you can do to help your child.

I enjoyed reading Baby Comes Home because there's so much useful information even for parent's of children older than 18 months, like me. Some things I already knew but I did learn a lot of new things from this book. I loved Dr. Pauls writing style because he kept it short and simple and to the point. It was easy to understand. This is a great book for anyone with children or that takes care of children. I give this book 5 stars.

I received a free book to review.
