Publisher's Summary

What to Expect the First Year by Heidi Murkoff with Sharon Mazel is a detailed, informative guide to parenting during the first year of a child's life. New parents can become overwhelmed by a multitude of concerns and questions about how to make sure their newborns get a healthy start in life.

Parents must make innumerable choices including figuring out whether to use cloth or disposable diapers, to breastfeed or use formula, to sleep-train or always get up with the baby. Parents must learn a host of new skills, such as how to hold the baby properly, how to change diapers, and how to interpret the baby's cries, which are an important form of communication. If a mother is breastfeeding, she needs practice, patience, and an understanding of whether or not her baby is receiving enough sustenance.

Please note: This is a summary, analysis and review of the book and not the original book.

This summary only tells you what the book is about.

The book is rather useless if you are looking for information on the specific topics.
