From the authors of the 9.6-million-copy bestselling What to Expect When You're Expecting, here is What to Expect the First Year (over 5.6 million copies in print), 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-these are covered thoughtfully and thoroughly.Additional chapters cover special subjects such as first aid, traveling with a baby, premature babies, adopted babies, and much more. Winner of the 1994 Parenting "Hall of Fame" Award from Child magazine's Child's Best Parenting Book Award. Selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club and Better Homes & Gardens Family Book Service.Book Details:Format: Publication Date: 1/3/1989Pages: 671Reading Level: Age 0 and Up
Congratulations! You’re a father. Now what? The follow-up to the hysterical bestselling Caveman’s Pregnancy Companion. You managed to survive pregnancy without getting hit in the face by a blunt projectile hurled from your wife’s sling. Now the birth of your baby has ushered in a bewildering phase where your crude, uncivilized, and underdeveloped ways will surely be put to the test. Offbeat and humorous but full of useful tips, Caveman’s Guide to Baby’s First Year will lead you from a Fatherhood Aptitude Test to the 10 Commandments for Cro-Magnon Fathers to a Yoga Party (quasi-erotic yoga poses designed to reduce stress and stimulate the body). Along the way you’ll find candid advice on all topics, from the mechanics of breastfeeding to baby proofing the home to instructions for toys even a caveman could make himself. So if you’ve been wondering what to do now that best thing that ever happened to you happened, leading to an anxiety-ridden life of no sleep, no sex, and more time picking out formula than ordering beer, fear no more! There have been quite a few advances since you first stepped out of your cave (vaccinations, infant massage, and baby sign language to name a few) and it’s all here, accompanied by charts, diagrams and other illustrations straightforward enough for you to get your Paleolithic head around.

Getting two babies to fall asleep is obviously more complicated than dealing with just one and with two (or more) schedules to contend with, it's even more important to "sleep train" twins in early infancy. But how? Now, the author of the beloved sleep classic Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child, provides the first step-by-step guide to establishing good sleep (as well as repairing and preventing sleep problems) with twins and multiples.With authority and reassurances, Dr. Weissbluth explains his process for instituting beneficial habits within the framework of your twins' natural sleep cycles. An invaluable source of information and comfort for the new parents of multiples, the book: - Introduces the concept of "sleep training" to new parents -- complete with a step-by-step tutorial on how to do it- Explains why the development of healthy sleep habits is different for twins and singletons- Explains how sleep may come differently for fraternal and identical twins, and how the mother's age and her use of fertility treatments can affect twins' sleep -- and what to do about these issues- Describes ways to get your babies to synchronize their internal clocks and fall asleep at the same time--naturally- Pinpoints the way daytime sleep differs from night sleep and why both are important to your children- Reveals the common mistakes parents make to get their children to sleep--including the inclination to rock and feed
The First Years Close and Secure Sleeper The First Years deceptively simple Close & Secure Sleeper allows you to feed, soothe, monitor, and bond with baby in the comfort of your own bed. Meant to be used from birth until baby rolls over or pushes up on their own, the sleeper is anchored to your bed by a large flap that tucks under your mattress. The patented Airflow design of the hollow frame and breathable mesh fabric keep air circulating and baby cool.The sleeper folds up nicely for convenient portability and compact storage. A durable, cloth-covered U-shaped "wall" surrounds baby's head and torso to limit their movement and help prevent parents from rolling onto them. The soft head barrier reduces the risk of entrapment, while the foot wedge--which can be used as a sleep positioner in future months--ensures baby stays snugly inside the sleep area. The supportive bottom is a cozy resting spot with the included soft cover, vinyl covered mattress, and removable, machine washable mattress sheet.Reassurance and safety weren't the only things The First Years folks thought of when creating this sleeper. Other benefits include its portability, a nightlight, and transitional use. For travel convenience, the Close & Secure folds up easily, is lightweight, and sports a carrying handle. Once baby has outgrown it, this feature means that it can also be compactly stored until needed again. A built-in nightlight allows you
