Summary

If you'd like to enjoy every stage of your child's development without worrying if you're doing the right thing or not, then keep reading. 

There’s nothing quite like a baby’s first months of life, as they are arguably the ones that will have the most impact throughout their entire development. 

First-time parents and veterans agree that the first year can be one of the most challenging stages to face.

Here's some of what you can expect to learn from this audiobook:

  • How to properly feed your baby for optimal development and health throughout the first year.
  • Discover how to avoid having endless sleepless nights by sleep-training your child.
  • Learn how to avoid common mistakes that parents make that can end up harming their baby's development in the long-term.
  • How to properly deal with separation anxiety and make it much easier on your child, and you.
  • The biggest challenges parents face in the first year and how to easily overcome them.

Avoid the common pitfalls common to both first time parents and veterans alike.

The earlier you manage to give proper guidance and care, the easier it is for babies to grow into healthy children.

However, there is no such thing as being too late, and even tricky behaviors and habits can be helped.

Increase your confidence as a parent. Start by taking care of your baby the proper way from the moment your baby arrives home for the first time!

I’m slowly learning how to read my baby better. Jade is my second child already but I still picked up great tips from this conclusive book. Nice!

awesome

My husband downloaded this two days before our baby was born, and I followed the tips in the book. The result? I have no problem getting my baby to stop crying and sleep through the night. It’s awesome!

Very helpful

Such a cute book! I was recently asked to be a parent and know absolutely nothing about kids. This book was very helpful and broke everything down in a very easy way to understand. Loved the diagrams and charts. Easy to listen and reference, and the added humor made it fun and less dry than other options.

Useful book for anyone with kids

I love this book, it may come in handy for any new parent but is a fun and useful book for anyone with kids- baby to toddler. I especially love that it literally is explained as a manual for a baby up to a toddler! It is so fun and makes listening and learning enjoyable. It also has some very useful information for anyone. It will be a staple in any newborn basket I gift.

Game changer for sleep

I highly recommend this book!
I am a first time mother and had little to no idea about the basics on baby care. This book does not tell you how to do things, instead it guides you. It gives much needed advice and backs it up with examples on how to apply everything learned. I have a 2 month old and because of this book knows the difference between night and day. He plays during the day and sleeps all night. The book helps one understand the importance of dimming their room for maximum comfort.

Box set not worth it, over 50% repititon

Each of the books is good, compact with a lot of info. But there is a huge overlap between the two books. And not in terms of content but really word to word repititon of complete sentences if not chapters.

Gives everything you need

This book gives you everything you need to know to take care of your newborn. Clear, to the point.Our daughter was born six weeks early and I literally listened this in the waiting room of the NICU between feedings. This book gives you everything you need to know about taking care of a baby, developmental stages, games to play with a baby, etc. It's more than just a joke.

Appreciates this help

I stumbled upon both basic and advance tips here. It did help both of us (My husband and I) to feel a little more prepared and having it as a reference provides some level of comfort. You’ll be shock to know how anxious we were before we found this book. I appreciate this little help.

Most supportive audio book

I wish to have a good feeling about my baby and I just found the most supportive audio book. I admire the manner in which this audio book was set up. And the nicest thing is? It’s working with my baby!

Provides practical information

Raising a bright, smart, and creative baby is possible with the assistance of this piece. It’s a friendly guide that stores practical info any parent can follow. And since a baby is totally dependent in our care, I vowed myself to listen to this every day until I master everything that need to be done.

Excellent basic book

My daughter loves this book (and the pregnancy/birthing book) - over all the overs. Big disclaimer, it is all for attachment parenting. However, it discuss developmental milestones, behavioral issues, touches on medical issues, etc. Excellent basic book for a new parent.
