A First Time Parent's Survival Guide

A How to Manual for the First Two Years

Why don’t babies come with a how to manual?” Wouldn’t it be nice to have a pediatrician there with you so you could remember what was said in those well visits and to ask simple questions to? Finally a parenting book that is organized around your baby’s well visits, isn’t written like a text book and meant to calm you down rather than scare you about all the very rare possibilities. Dr. Cliff James is a board certified Pediatrician in private practice for the last 15 years. His goal was to write a book that could both inform and entertain a new parent. With the help of his own baby, Kaden, you get a look at parenting from a pediatrician point of view as well as the mind of a baby/toddler/evil genius. This book covers: *Choosing a pediatrician *Feeding your baby *Pee, Poop, Puke and Snot *Vaccines *What happens in the hospital *Chapters for each well visit *Developmental milestones *Illnesses *Injuries This book is designed to bring a little lightheartedness to parenthood with cartoons, jokes, and plenty of Dr. James’ own disaster stories as a parent. “To often we as pediatricians and parents spend too much time emphasizing how much work it is to be a parent and lose sight of the fact children are hilarious and a great source of joy.”
