Everything new parents need to know about the care (and feeding) of an infant, from the authors of What to Expect(R) When You're Expecting. Covers monthly growth and development, feeding for every age and stage, sleep strategies that really work. Filled with the most practical tips (how to give a bath, decode your baby's crying, what to buy for baby, and when to return to work) and the most up-to-date medical advice (the latest on vaccines, vitamins, illnesses, SIDS, safety, and more). Reassuring Answers to Hundreds of Questions: What's the best kind of car seat for my newborn? How do I know if my baby's getting enough to eat? How can I tell if my baby is really sick? When should I call the doctor? Should I sign my baby up for classes? Should I be worried that my baby isn't crawling yet? How do I cope with my colicky baby? The only book on infant care to address the physical as well as the emotional needs of the entire family.

Publishers Description

Some things about babies, happily, will never change. They still arrive warm, cuddly, soft, and smelling impossibly sweet. But how moms and dads care for their brand-new bundles of baby joy has changed and now, so has the new-baby bible. Announcing the completely revised third edition of "What to Expect the First Year." With over 10.5 million copies in print, "First Year" is the world s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don t come with, but should. And now, it s better than ever. Every parent s must-have/go-to is completely updated. Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, "First Year" is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than ever packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too. Among the changes: Baby care fundamentals crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplements are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through today s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and For Parents boxes that focus on mom s and dad s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible."

Very helpful  Jan 31, 2010
I found everything I needed in this book!!!, in an easy language and practical explications.
Must Have Resource for New Parents  Jan 18, 2010
A gotta have for the new parents. Can't say how many times we reached for this one in the first year. Better by far than google for the what the heck do I do when my baby does X, Y, or Z?

Getting ready to be a dad, this an other baby books piling up in my house were pretty overwhelming. Only thing that really helped me get ready were collections of stories - Operating Instructions: A Journal of My Son's First Year the only one I actually made it through. Others made my head swim and added to general feelings of overwhelm. I didn't want expert advice (until baby arrived and I needed it for specific somethings - in which case what to expect a fantastic resource.) This new one from Moneyball guy Home Game: An Accidental Guide to Fatherhood seems a good contender from the dad's point of view - recent memory reflections on the experience of becoming a dad, instead of expert advice. For a raw, funny, hopeful as it happens view from a dad, try The Faith of a Child
horrible horrible not buy this book  Jan 14, 2010
I cannot even believe how bad the advice is in this book. It is so outdated. It is one sided, it is horrible. I feel bad that this is available to new mothers. It goes against all motherly instinct. It talks about "spoiling" and how the baby manipulates at 6 and 7 months old. Babies do not manipulate. Babies cry because they have a NEED. If you meet their needs, they become secure and confident and independent. If you let them "cry it out" as this book recommends, they become clingy, insecure and more dependent. This book talks about primitive societies and how they carry their babies everywhere, and then states how our society is different and we need to push independence. I cannot stress this enough...Babies become independent when we meet their needs.If we ignore their needs, sure they will self soothe, but they will also lose trust, a very basic sense of trust that they are just learning to develop. I wear my babies everywhere, everyday. My now 3 year old is an amazing, confident, independent, secure kid. He slept through the night when HE was ready. I never forced these milestones on him. My 6 month old started sitting up on his own at 4 months, crawling at 5 months, and is now standing...and yes, I wear him like they do in "primitive societies" (rolling my eyes) He is sooo happy and smiling. He babbles up a storm. He does not manipulate me. He cries when he needs me, and it is my responsibility as a parent to meet his needs. DON"T BUY THIS HORRIBLE BOOK. I wish they would take it off the market.
Well organized compendium of information  Jan 12, 2010
I have read many negative reviews of this book, and I have to say I cannot understand why would one assign only 1 star out of 5. I really like the book. I think it is well organized, to the point, and written with a dose of humor. I was able to find all the information that I needed, and I think that the book does not push a point of view, but instead it presents alternatives and leaves the choice to you. I would say that if you will not love this book, you will certainly not hate it.
Very Helpful  Dec 10, 2009
The book is very helpful regarding new things happening with your baby, and what to expect to come soon.
It advises on illnesses, so you know when to ring the doctor and when not to.
I found it to be very helpful.
