Parents of newborns can be exhausted, nervous, and confused. This short book will help reassure and teach parents about what to expect from normal newborns, how to handle common concerns, and when to contact their pediatrician.
Topics include: What happens in the newborn nursery; breast and bottle feeding; newborn safety; crying, gas, colic, and fussiness; fever; vaccines for babies and adults; handling emergencies.
"Your New Baby" was created for parents of newborns at the author's practice. Though it does contain some practice-specific contact information, the medical information, wisdom, and reassuring tone can help any new (or about-to-be-new) parents.
