Baby’s First Year: The Jewish Mother’s Guide



Wouldn't it be fantastic if babies came with instructions? Wouldn't you love to have your wise grandmother nearby when your baby won't stop crying? Wouldn't it be great to have an experienced friend on call when you're choosing the perfect stroller? And wouldn't you want to read a parenting book that reflects the values you cherish? You've got it all in this comprehensive, practical, and empowering book, written just for you!

Baby's First Year: The Jewish Mother's Guide is here to answer your questions, calm your fears, and give you all the information you need - and the confidence! - to make well-informed decisions. It includes everything you have to know about nursing your baby, child development, common medical issues, baby equipment, and so much more. And since this is about Jewish babies you'll also find chapters dealing with Jewish traditions to welcome children to this world, as well as pertinent halachos of childcare and Shabbos. A comprehensive index makes it easy to find the information you need.

Baby's First Year team includes a neonatal nurse with more than a decade of experience with newborns and a speech-language pathologist with a deep understanding of child development. Some are still mothers of young children, others are already grandmas, so in addition to carefully researched information, they also share practical tips, insights, and ideas that really work! Comprehensive, practical, and reflecting the Jewish values you cherish, Baby's First Year: A Jewish Mother's Guide is an essential piece of baby equipment!
