Uzzi Reiss, MD, OB/GYN has been delivering children for over 30 years. He lives in Beverly Hills.
Yfat M. Reiss serves as editor-in-chief of SharpMan Press and SharpMan.com, two award-winning men's information resources. She lives in Los Angeles.
Michael Klein is an award-winning illustrator whose work has appeared in countless publications and several books.
This book is a follow-up to the Reiss' first one, How to Make a Pregnant Woman Happy (2002), and covers such topics as managing pain, breast-feeding, postpartum depression, and "balancing baby, self, and partner." It contains useful information for new fathers about what is normal, when to call a doctor, and how to be helpful. The book is designed more to answer specific questions as they arise rather than to be read straight through. The mostly mainstream medical advice (including promulgating the notion that co-sleeping is both dangerous and harmful to marriage) is countered with the recommendation of homeopathic remedies for a host of ills. One red flag, though, is the recommendation for further reading of On Becoming Babywise (1995) by Gary Ezzo, an advocate of rigidly scheduled feedings from birth, whose theories have been criticized by the American Academy of Pediatrics as contributing to failure to thrive in some infants and sabotaging successful breast-feeding.
