Title of the book: Baby Comes Home; a parent's guide to a healthy and well first eighteen months

Author: Dr Paul Roumeliotis

Publisher: Influence Publishing

Publishing Date: 2014

ISBN: 978-1-77141-072-4

Summary:

Unlike most baby care books, expert pediatrician and health communicator DR. PAUL Roumeliotis takes a unique approach by emphasizing what scientific advances have confirmed-that what happens early on in life affects one's overall health decades down the road. Baby Comes Home communicates the latest science that explains how positive or negative early childhood experiences can have lifelong consequences.

The book begins by describing the vital changes that occur in a baby's brain during the first 18 months. It then explores the new "Science of TLC," that shows how tender, loving, and caring relationships with babies help to positively shape their brains. The book then presents important practical information on safety in the home and outdoors, baby routines/patterns, immunizations, injury prevention, nutrition, and more.

To complete this useful guide, DR.PAUL also reviews common baby care issues and concerns as well as illnesses and conditions commonly seen during the first few years of life. Whether you're a parent, grandparent, daycare teacher or child caregiver, this book is an excellent reference resource for your baby's current and future health, wellness and prosperity.

Personal Opinion:

It's interesting that when I first requested to read and review the book I had one purpose, but now my purpose is different than before. I have to say that I didn't use the book yet, but I hope I will in the future, yet from reading it, its a very accessible book that doesn't talk down to caretakers and the information is simple and easy to understand. I loved how much detail and suggestions the author had for various problems that a baby will cause, or how the baby will turn life upside. I kind of do wish that the author would have covered the topic of pets and babies, as well as how to handle when a baby will pull a cat's or a doggie's tail and how to teach them early on not to do it. Other than that, whatever you might be looking for is right in there: nutrition, preparing for arrival, safety advice, babies growing up, diseases and their symptoms and treatments, Yes, one doesn't have to wade through hundreds and hundreds of pages just to find an answer to a simple question, but instead at one's fingertips there are 400 pages that are written in an easy to understand language along with an index and a very organized table of contents.
