Unlike most baby care books, expert pediatrician and health communicator DR. PAUL Roumeliotis takes a unique approach by emphasizing what scientific advances have confirmed—that what happens early on in life affects one's overall health decades down the road.
Baby Comes Home communicates the latest science that explains how positive or negative early childhood experiences can have lifelong consequences. The book begins by describing the vital changes that occur in a baby's brain during the first 18 months. It then explores the new "Science of TLC", that shows how tender, loving, and caring relationships with babies help to positively shape their brains. The book then presents important practical information on safety in the home and outdoors, baby routines/patterns, immunizations, injury prevention, nutrition, and more. To complete this useful guide, DR.PAUL also reviews common baby care issues and concerns as well as illnesses and conditions commonly seen during the first few years of life.
Whether you're a parent, grandparent, daycare teacher or child caregiver, this book is an excellent reference resource for your baby's current and future health, wellness and prosperity.
As most of my regular readers know, I'm a relatively new grandma to one Mr. Oliver Bonham Chance! Now, I have four sons and I was a hands-on, stay-at-home mom with them, but when Oliver came along I realized that things have changed in the "mom business" since I was a young mother!
So I found Dr. Paul's book to be very helpful, very very informative and very entertaining as well. I appreciated how he breaks down his information in short but complete chapters and he covers all the baby business from A to Z! What to know about baby apnea - it's there; want to know about whether baby should go to a petting zoo, it's there! This is one of the most complete baby wellness books I've had the pleasure of reading - I daresay even better than ol' Dr. Spock!
I would highly recommend "Baby Comes Home" to any new parent (and grandparent)! What a great first gift this would be!
