About this item

In an updated and expanded second edition—the secrets every expectant parent wants to know, now with the most up-to-date research on recommendations from mothercare to car seats, plus apps that will track baby’s schedule and more

There are lots of books for expecting and new parents—but this one is something special. Carole Kramer Arsenault has devoted her career to infant and pregnancy care, and worked for many years as a labor and delivery nurse, including at Boston’s internationally recognized Brigham and Women’s Hospital. She went on to found Boston Baby Nurses, where she and her team of nurses have helped hundreds of first-time parents care for their infants and adjust to their new role. Now, this revised and expanded second edition of The Baby Nurse Bible brings Arsenault’s expert guidance, advice, and tips to new and expecting parents everywhere. Packed with information parents need to know for the first trimester of pregnancy through baby’s first three months, it offers:
 
  • Guidance on first decisions, including signing up for childbirth classes and choosing a pediatrician
  • Answers to hundreds of the most-asked questions that Arsenault fields daily, including how to keep your newborn happy and healthy
  • Advice on preparing for baby’s arrival and choosing safe, nontoxic home and baby products
  • A nurse’s perspective and insider tips on labor, delivery, and how to make the most of the hospital experience
  • A complete guide to successful breastfeeding and modern breast pumps, based on Arsenault’s years of experience with new mothers and her IBLCE certification
  • Flexible daily routines to help parents juggle sleeping, soothing, playtime—and time for themselves—during those first few months
  • Suggestions for Dad’s role in the birth process and beyond
  • Helpful illustrations throughout, and much more!
