Description
What if you had 15 extra minutes with your pediatrician? With the goal of instilling confidence in new or anxious parents, this health and wellness handbook follows the typical checkup schedule from birth to age four, while tackling topics that sometimes get neglected—like screen time, picky eaters, and discipline. With the tangle of information available on the internet, it’s easy for new parents to become overwhelmed. In this handbook, Dr. Luke Voytas, a practicing pediatrician (and father of two young kids), helps parents feel confident and calm by providing advice that is a blend of research-based information and common sense. Beginning with preparations leading up to baby’s birth, including how to find the right pediatrician, it follows the traditional checkup schedule—month by month, year by year—through age four. In a friendly, often humorous, and reassuring voice, he also delves into common illnesses and concerning topics including behavior, eating, and sleep, and provides answers to questions parents frequently ask. This handbook provides reliable information that empowers parents to make decisions that are best for their child and will surely be a trusted resource for everyday use.

display_description"A good-health handbook for parents of children from birth through age four that helps new or anxious parents feel confident, and with a special emphasis on the first couple of years of baby's life. This handbook for parents of newborns and children up to the age of four is a breath of fresh air in the parenting category. Dr. Luke Voytas is a practicing pediatrician (and father of two young kids) who helps new parents to feel confident and secure in their ability to meet their baby's needs. Chapters begin with the final preparations leading up to baby's birth, including how to find the right doctor and the essentials you will need when he or she comes home. The book then follows the normal checkup schedule through age four. Development and feeding are addressed throughout, but the heart of the book wrestles with topics like sleep, picky eaters, discipline, and screen time. Also included are frequently asked questions and brief case studies that prepare parents for handling common illnesses they might encounter. Using respected scientific studies to back up information and recommendations, this handbook will be a trusted reference new parents can count on"-- "A Pediatrician (and Dad) Shares His Expertise for Confident, Calm Parenting from Birth to Age Four"--
