Drawing on the latest medical recommendations and his experiences at home and in the office, Dr. Cohen covers everything from preparing for your baby's arrival to introducing her to a new sibling, to those three basic functions that will come to dominate a new parent's life.Eat, Sleep, Poopaddresses questions, strategies, myths, and all aspects of your child's development. In each instance, Dr. Cohen provides a thorough overview and a simple answer or explanation: a "common sense bottom line," yet he doesn't dictate. The emphasis is on doing what is medically soundandwhat works best for you and your baby. He also includes fact sheets, easy-to-follow diagnosis and treatment guides, and humorous daddy vs. doctor sidebars that reveal the learning curve during his fi rst year as a dad.Lively, practical, and reassuring,Eat, Sleep, Poopprovides the knowledge you need to parent with confidence, to relax and enjoy baby's fi rst year, and to raise your child with the best tool a parent can have: informed common sense.
