Unlike most baby care books, this early child care guide by 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. He believes the first eighteen months of a child's life can set their wellness path.
Baby Comes Home begins by describing the vital changes that occur in a baby's brain during the first eighteen months and explains why the early years are so important. It explores the new "Science of TLC," which shows how tender, loving, and caring relationships with babies help to shape their brains positively.
DR.PAUL presents important practical information on safety in the home and outdoors, baby routines and patterns, immunizations, injury prevention, nutrition, and growth and development milestones. The second half of this useful guide 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 for your baby's current and future health, wellness, and prosperity.
