With over 11 million copies in print, What to Expect: The First Year, now in a completely revised third edition, is the worldâ€™s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies donâ€™t come with, but should. And now, itâ€™s better than ever. Every parentâ€™s must-have/go-to is completely updated. Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, First Year is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than everâ€”packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too. Among the changes: Baby care fundamentalsâ€”crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplementsâ€”are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through todayâ€™s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and â€œFor Parentsâ€ boxes that focus on momâ€™s and dadâ€™s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible.
