Publisher's Summary

The saying "babies don't come with a manual" may be true - but newborn books are a good place to start. Parenting is a process of phases and milestones, and newborn books are invaluable. Each new stage, as important as the last, serves as a building process for years of parental education and care. The Newborn Handbook will gently and sequentially lead you through each week of caring for a newborn in the first three months - the weeks and months that can be both exhilarating as well as nerve-racking. 

From how to prepare your home prior to baby's arrival, to both parents' contributions to the stages of early development, this standout in newborn books prepares you for all of the challenging situations to come.

  • All parents included - This inclusive book is filled with practical advice for all parents and caregivers - even non-biological.
  • Helpful resources - Discover helpful references and resources section with some great additional information.

Great introductory book

The book is a great introductory flash into parenting and covers some worries ... I'm pregnant with my first so I've had some "how do you keep a newborn alive" worries crossed my mind. I had to speed up the person who talks to 1.25 because the narrator talks in a weird block speed with gaps without doing it.

Short and straight to the point!

This book was wonderful! It’s short but with the important information you need to know! Only one thing is I wish it had a PDF file for us to download with the baby’s schedule she mentioned and the important lists on what ti buy.
