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"--
