9780071427869: From First Kicks to First Steps : Nurturing Your Baby's Development from Pregnancy Through the First Year of Life

Innovative ways parents can nurture their child's development even before birth

Most expectant parents can't wait to get to know the mysterious little person who will be arriving. Now parents can find out what's really going on in there and start nurturing their baby's development during pregnancy with the help of From First Kicks to First Steps.

Beautifully written by a pioneering pediatrician, this groundbreaking book focuses on the transition between pregnancy and the first year to help parents give their baby the very best start in life. Dr. Alan Greene answers such common parental concerns as:

  • Do babies dream before birth?
  • What can parents do during pregnancy to help their babies later in life?
  • Can babies become better sleepers even before they're born?
  • Does taking fluoride help or hurt?
  • And much more!
