Despite all the planning in the world, nothing can really prepare a soon-to-be new parent for that big step after the baby is born. All that well-intentioned information and counsel offered by family and friends is just not enough and likely confusing when the stressful days arrive.

Written by leading pediatric experts in a friendly, easy-to-understand style, Baby Care Basics offers a comprehensive guide to help parents make the right choices for that new baby.

In full color, the book is engaging and user-friendly. It covers all the essential topics from a baby's birth, first few days, growth, development, breast-and formula-feeding, introducing solid food, to sleeping through the night and much, much more.

Having easy and quick access to this comprehensive information is so important in getting started on parenting and establishing a routine that works for all.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must for new parents This book was recommended by my daughter's pediatrician. It is a great resource for new parents. It helped answer many questions, such as is this normal? Is my baby feeding enough? It helped with the anxiety that comes with being a new parent and provided information on breast feeding as well as formula feeding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I needed... This book is fantastic - thorough and full of practical advice. Since it is written by a bunch of paediatricians, I can trust that the content is based on the best medicine and most up-to-date evidence. Also, as a new (sleep deprived) mom, I love how easy the book is to navigate and read!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great book! This book just arrived last week as a gift from a friend. I have a two week old and I already find it so useful. The breastfeeding section is amazing and provides so many helpful tips. I am paranoid about infant safety and there is a whole chapter on this that I used to make sure I am doing all the right things at home for the coming months to keep my baby safe. The book has beautiful pictures and it is so easy to follow and read (even with my new found level of maternal exhaustion)!
