New from and the AAP! Heading Home With Your Newborn: From Birth to Reality, by Laura A. Jana, MD, FAAP, and Jennifer Shu, MD, FAAP.


Offering parent-tested, pediatrician approved advice, Heading Home With Your Newborn gives new parents the confidence they need during the first few months of baby's life. As both doctors and parents, the authors deliver a must-have, practical guide that hits on all the essential "what-you-need-to-knows" for new or first-time parents, from feeding, sleeping, changing and bathing to traveling, sickness, vaccines, early learning, child care options, and much more.


The third edition of this best-selling guide on newborns is fully-revised and updated to arm parents with the latest and most essential information, including:


  • Making the transition from hospital to home
  • Breast feeding and the involvement of allergies to formula options and beyond
  • Sleep strategies
  • Vaccines
  • The ABC's of early learning
  • Great advice for capturing memories and early moments
  • Making sure moms and dads take care of themselves


Heading Home with Your Newborn is the book parents read before heading home with baby from the hospital and the guide they'll turn to again and again to feel comfortable with their newborn at home.
