From the Inside Flap:

Today's expectant mother is a smart health-care consumer, and she simply wants to know everything about what's happening to her changing body and developing fetus. Once the baby is born, she has an entirely different set of questions. To help reassure her, The Good Housekeeping Illustrated Book of Pregnancy & Baby Care offers a comprehensive look at all the stages of pregnancy and the first three years of a child's life. The book has been updated with the help of a team of nationally renowned medical experts.

Good Housekeeping answers every mom's most pressing questions--no matter how small--in 800 captivating photographs. A unique month-by-month photographic diary of a real woman's pregnancy explains all the physical and emotional changes you'll undergo, offers advice on how to take care of yourself, and charts the growth of the fetus. You'll also learn about the latest in prenatal planning, exercise, nutrition, labor, and birth.

Our guide to baby care offers step-by-step instructions on all the important basics, such as

* How to bottle-feed, breast-feed, and express milk
* How to change diapers, choose a layette, and buy a car seat
* How to dress, undress, feed, and bathe your baby
* How to deal with crying spells, sleepless nights, diaper rash, and potty training

A section on health care spells out everything you need to know to recognize and treat common childhood illnesses. Included are an easy-to-follow guide to childhood first aid, growth charts, and immunization timetables.
