“What to Expect the First Year” a Workman Publishing book. Currently over 5.6 million copies in print.
This book is the most comprehensive guide available on the next phase of parenting newborn care. Written with the same reassuring, lively authority as What to Expect When You’re Expecting, the book is organized for ease of reference, leading nervous parents from month to month, check-up to check-up, even feeding to feeding.
The chapters on each month address basic expectations of behavior and growth, as well as special concerns and decisions from finding the perfect pediatrician to getting baby on a sleep-through-the-night schedule to choosing toys, shoes, and diapers. Equally important are the emotional issues a new baby raises for every member of the family.
Winner of the 1994 Parenting Hall of Fame Award from Child magazines, Child’s Best Parenting Book Award. Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club and Better Homes & Gardens Family Book Service. 704 pages.
