Publisher's Summary

This program is read by former Entertainment Tonight host Mark Steines, with a foreword read by Patricia Heaton and an introduction read by the author.  

From the pediatrician who became an Internet sensation with the “Hamilton Hold” in a YouTube video about how to calm a crying baby comes a one-of-a-kind resource to guide you through the earliest moments of your child’s life - and help you to parent with common sense and confidence.  

Robert C. Hamilton, MD, has spent more than three decades caring for newborns. In his practice, Dr. Bob has seen it all - what works, what doesn’t. How can you get your baby to nurse, sleep, and maybe even cease crying? What strategies can help you connect and communicate with your infant? What important decisions will you make during the first year for your child, yourself, and your partner?  

Here, Dr. Bob shares his clear, sensible, warm advice - as well as all the latest scientific data and research - on how to:  

  • Offer comfort to a crying newborn using the “Hold” 
  • Gently teach your baby how to sleep (and get some sleep yourself) 
  • Establish healthy patterns 
  • Breastfeed, formula-feed, or bottle-feed using either 
  • Play! 
  • Manage screen time in your home 
  • And more to help you navigate the unforgettable first year of your child’s life

Interesting and informative

I really enjoyed this book. Dr. Hamilton includes the most updated research and studies, while offering timeless advice.  I am pregnant with my 3rd child and still learned new techniques, strategies, and ways of thinking about raising children. The book is funny and informative.  Dr. Hamilton’s words come from the heart--he feels like a trusted, experienced family member offering the most heartfelt, thoughtful advice based on years of professional experience and knowledge, and personal insight and stories. I have this book on my night stand and plan on referencing it often (especially on the chapters relating to feeding and helping the baby sleep through the night!)
