Clear guidance from a trusted source

You've made it through pregnancy and delivery, and now you're ready to bring your new bundle of joy home. Becoming a new parent is both exhilarating and overwhelming. Being thrust into a new world of responsibility for a tiny human being can leave new parents feeling unprepared for the task.

Besides visits to the pediatrician, where else can you turn for reassurance and advice? Now, Mayo Clinic Guide to Your Baby's First Year gives the clear guidance new parents are looking for from trusted experts. The editors are Mayo Clinic pediatric experts who, as active parents, can personally relate to the joys and challenges of parenthood.

This easy-to-use yet comprehensive how-to manual provides answers and explanations to the questions and concerns of new parents. From baby-care basics and month-by-month development to common illnesses and health and safety, this book covers it all. There's also a wealth of tips and advice for couples coping with the many changes to daily life that come with parenthood.

Co-medical editor Esther H. Krych, M.D., is a mother of three young children and a pediatrician.

"Mayo Clinic Guide to Your Baby's First Year is a one-stop resource for caring for a newborn," she says. "From baby-care basics, to month-by-month development, to health and safety, this book covers it all. It is an easy-to-navigate and easy-to-understand guide that all new parents can trust."

Mayo Clinic Guide to Your Baby's First Year is in full color, including color photos of common skin rashes and conditions, and is divided into six easy-to-navigate sections to help new parents quickly find the information they're looking for. 

Part 1: Caring for Your Baby
Part 2: Baby's Health and Safety
Part 3: Growth and Development Month by Month
Part 4: Common Illnesses and Concerns
Part 5: Managing and Enjoying Parenthood
Part 6: Special Circumstances

The subjects covered within the six sections include:

  • Understanding your baby's temperament
  • Managing and enjoying parenthood
  • Growth and development month by month
  • Encouraging good sleep habits
  • Succeeding with breast-feeding and bottle-feeding
  • Introducing solid foods
  • Choosing good child care
  • Comforting a crying baby
  • Choosing the right diapers
  • Baby bonding
  • Immunizations
  • Common illnesses and concerns

Parenthood is a personal journey. How you deal with the challenges of raising a child will likely reflect your expectations and hopes of what life with your newborn will be like. This book provides information to help you prepare for and deal with many of the routine events, issues and tasks of life with a newborn. However, you are the one who makes it all happen.

The companion book to Mayo Clinic Guide to a Healthy Pregnancy, this is the second in a series of parenting guides by Mayo Clinic's pediatric experts. Mayo Clinic Guide to Your Baby's First Year offers the unique expertise and support of Mayo Clinic — the gold standard in medical research, education and patient care for more than a century.

And if you order now, you'll instantly receive a FREE downloadable bonus gift, 50 Head-to-Toe Health Tips!
