First-time Parent free pdf Forget unrealistic childcare manuals -- this is the book you really need to help you cope brilliantly with those first chaotic days and months ahead. As a health journalist and mother-of-three, Lucy Atkins is familiar with both the medical aspects of childbirth and baby development, and the reality of day-to-day life as an exhausted first-time mum or dad. In her feisty, humorous style, she begins with that first mind-blowing day and addresses the issues unique to the first-time parent who stares at their newborn and thinks "Where are the instructions?" Anticipating the questions and concerns of all new mothers--Why does my baby cry so much? Will I ever lose all this weight? Am I a bad parent because!?--the book provides practical advice and level-headed reassurance. It addresses the needs of the baby and, very importantly, those of the parent during the first year of their baby's life. Contents include: / Starter's orders -- the equipment and kit you really need, as opposed to what the department store tells you / Hello -- how to cope with the first few hours / Start -- coming home, bonding, how to survive the first few days / Sleep -- for everyone! / Cry -- why your baby cries, what to do, why you'll want to cry, too / Eat --breastfeeding, supplemental feeding, moving to solids, nutrition / Grow -- baby's physical and mental development / Play -- yes, you two actually can have fun / Thrive -- health considerations for baby and parent / Live -- adapting to your new life, the changing mother-father relationship / Work -- coping with being at home and with going back to work / Also includes information on single parenting, and on adopted, multiple and special needs babies. The First-Time Parent is on your side, and reassures that you can cope brilliantly with your new baby and your new life.
