Read a little, learn a lot!

Oh, baby! In one book, 100 leading parenting experts offer must-have advice for expecting and new parents. The Experts’ Guide to the Baby Years is the all-in-one companion to raising your baby with confidence, knowledge, and style, while maintaining your own sanity. As a brand-new parent, Samantha Ettus, creator of the Experts’ Guide series of books, went on a search to collect invaluable insights and practical know-how from the world’s experts in the field of parenting. The result is this wonderfully informative and entertaining guide to preparing for, welcoming, and caring for your new baby like an expert.

In bite-sized chapters that even the most sleep-deprived new parents can digest, you’ll find advice from an expert on the top 100 parental concerns, from budgeting for the baby to bathing, breastfeeding, and beyond. And it doesn’t stop at Baby. The Experts’ Guide to the Baby Years includes plenty of chapters devoted to you, too–such as getting in shape after childbirth, maintaining a happy marriage, and setting up a playdate. Bestselling author and pediatrician Harvey Karp provides secrets for calming a crying infant; travel guru Pauline Frommer reveals her best tips on planning a vacation with your child; and Iron Chef Cat Cora offers her techniques for making baby food. Each of the contributors brings a matchless blend of knowledge, passion, and experience to ensure that you make the most of your child’s first years.

From choosing a name and preparing for your baby’s arrival home to making the transition back to work, The Experts’ Guide to the Baby Years brings an unparalleled breadth of practical and authoritative information to the alternately joyous and exhausting journey through the baby years.
