‘In these days of advanced technology when so much can be achieved at the touch of a screen, there is still nothing compared with the miracle of a new baby. For new parents, the reality of having created this little being is stunning; a whole life is theirs to care for; their baby’s future is in their hands. The sense of achievement and responsibility will change them as people.’ – Dr Ilona Bendefy
Following on from the success of The Day-By-Day Pregnancy Book, DK brings you The Day-By-Day Baby Book. Written by a team of expert contributors, including Editor-in-chief Dr Ilona Bendefy, this comprehensive guide provides everything you need to know about your baby’s first year and the various aspects of baby care.
From the minute your baby arrives, the thought of what to do next can be daunting. The 365 days that lie ahead and the days beyond that are an extremely important part of your baby’s progress. These 12 months will be when your baby will grow and develop most rapidly, and at this time, more than at any other age, will be when you notice the way they change on almost a daily basis.
The Day-By-Day Baby Book offers a wealth of information and guidance to help you through each stage of your baby’s first year. The book has a unique chronological structure, covering every single day of the first 12 months, and is divided into three main sections called Your New Baby, Your Baby Day by Day and Your Baby’s Health.
Each page covers an area of baby care with specialist advice on the practical, physical and emotional aspects of looking after a new baby. This includes current evidence based advice on breast and bottle feeding, sleeping, weaning and health screening, plus other aspects of life with a new baby such as going on your first outing and childcare options.
Also included are weekly openers, timelines and ‘Ask an expert’ sections so parents can easily find the information most relevant to them, and what to expect during each important stage.
Written for mothers, fathers and anyone involved in raising children, The Day-By-Day Baby Book aims to make the all important first year of your baby’s life happy, rewarding and confident, preparing you for the joyful future years to come.
