Overview

Offering solid guidance for mothers and mothers-to-be whose reading skills are limited and who may have limited access to adequate health care, this guide focuses on basics like prenatal care, lifestyle choices, nutritional advice, and baby’s first few months. This updated edition includes new chapters on parent-newborn interaction; baby’s health, feeding, and safety; a more positive approach to breastfeeding; and current recommendations on immunizations, SIDS, and antibiotics. Checklists, a glossary, and a list of additional resources round out this invaluable book.
