Review:

From the editors of Parenting Magazine comes Parenting Guide to Your Baby's First Year, a comprehensive guide packed with helpful facts from the experts, as well as tips and true stories from parents. Organized into four sections, each covering a three-month period (plus a chapter on the first few days with baby), this guide advises new parents on everything from caring for baby to adjusting to parenthood. Author Ann Krueger, former editor-in-chief of Parenting Magazine and the mother of two, writes with candor and style. "In an instant," she says, "my world had both grown to make room for this precious new life and shrunk to focus only on her--a state of maternal insanity experienced by many new moms." Krueger offers straightforward explanations and earnest answers to the questions new parents ask: Why does my baby cry so much? When should I call the doctor if I suspect something is wrong? How can I encourage my baby to sleep through the night? How do I trim my baby's nails? What should I do to help ease my child's separation anxiety? Even, what's happened to my relationship? With all the essential information new parents need to survive (and enjoy!) their baby's first year, this guide will give you the resources you need to know that you're not alone in this great endeavor. --Kelley Smith
