Your Baby's First Year Week by Week Book Review

 Your Baby's First Year Week by Week Book Review

About the Book: Let the trusted authors of Your Pregnancy™ Week by Week—the book you relied on while you were pregnant—guide you through baby’s remarkable, sometimes mind-boggling first year. With easy-to-understand information at your fingertips, you’ll know what to look for and understand what’s happening. This book will provide you with the skills necessary to support and encourage baby’s growth.

Thoroughly revised and updated, Your Baby’s First Year™ Week by Week includes the latest pediatric guidelines and recommendations, plus more than 50 new topics—everything from food allergies to cord-blood banking. It also features the essential milestones of baby’s social, emotional, intellectual and physical development on a weekly basis. Valuable information includes:

Common medical problems: what to look for and when to call baby’s pediatrician

Bonding with baby: from baby massage to talking, what you can do to create a meaningful connection

Feeding baby: breast milk or formula? and introducing solids

Sleeping habits: how to improve the situation for the entire family

Vaccination guidelines: learn about the latest recommendations from the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP)

Playing with baby: how to help develop baby’s cognitive, social and motor skills through play and with toys, many of them homemade

Baby gear: the latest on carriers, high chairs, swings, cribs, clothing, diapers and everything else you may need

Our Take: I've been a father since 2002.  I need to preface this by saying that I am a very involved father...probably more like a mother to most people's standards.  I'm one of those helicopter parents!  I've since had three children, our most recent was born in November 2009, so he is four months old now.  My wife and I found ourselves in the market of finding new baby books.  We came across Your Baby's First Year Week by Week in hardcover.

We'd read a version of this book years ago, but this new edition has over 50 new topics and since ideas and thoughts on raising infants change constantly, we didn't want to rely on a used or older book.    This new version discusses more recent hot topics like cord blood banking and of course the latest thoughts on SIDS.  

If you're about to have a baby or you have a little one thats less than one year old this book is an invaluable resource.  Our sits right on our bedside table and gets used just about every day.  This would make a great gift for an expectant mother or father in your life!
