Your Baby's Beginning: A Parenting Guide for Your Baby's First Week (Soft cover) by Dr. Frank W. Bowen
Becoming a parent can be one of the most beautiful, exhilarating, confusing, and exhausting times of a person’s life. Along with the excitement, joy, and love come a thousand questions: “How much should my baby eat?”; “What should I expect from breastfeeding?”; “What is my baby experiencing today?”; and, perhaps the most common question, “Is this normal?”.
Neonatologist Frank Bowen, MD, has cared for thousands of infants in his career. In this in-depth guide, he takes new parents by the hand as he shares details of your baby’s first week, and describes what constitutes “normal” in three different areas: physical, behavioral, and feeding. Included with the guide are questions to help you reflect upon (and remember!) your worries, questions, and treasured moments during this special time in your life.
