Now to help with your bundle of joy is this bundle of four indispensable books.

HEALTHY SLEEP HABITS, HAPPY CHILD
Marc Weissbluth, M.D
.

In this perennial favorite, Dr. Marc Weissbluth, one of the country’s leading pediatricians, shares his groundbreaking approach to solving and preventing your children’s sleep problems, from infancy through adolescence. Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child is a step-by-step resource for instituting beneficial behaviors within the framework of your child’s natural sleep cycles. It includes information on the prevention and treatment of sleep problems, ways to naturally get your baby to fall asleep, help for working moms and children with sleep issues, the benefits and drawbacks of allowing kids to sleep in “the family bed,” and much more.

THE BABY FOOD BIBLE
Eileen Behan


Family nutrition expert Eileen Behan posits that good nutrition and good eating habits start on day one. The Baby Food Bible features a guide to more than one hundred foods recommended for infants and toddlers based on the American Academy of Pediatrics guidelines, explains when to introduce these foods into a child’s diet, and emphasizes the importance of setting healthy eating routines that center on family meals at the dining room table. You’ll also learn how to avoid everyday pitfalls, such as relying on too much fruit juice or labeling your child a picky eater; decipher the many labels and ingredient lists at the grocery story; and prevent and treat common food-related issues, as well as discourage chronic disease. Featuring an alphabetized index—from apples to zucchini—there’s no better way to ensure your child will grow up to have a happy and healthy life!

INFANT MASSAGE
Vimala McClure


In this renowned classic, Vimala McClure, founder of the International Association of Infant Massage, helpss you master the techniques of infant massage so you can incorporate this joyful and wonderful healing art into your baby’s life. She shows you how a daily massage benefits children—easing discomfort, releasing tension, helping premature infants gain weight, even improving breathing function in asthmatic children. Infant Massage also provides helpful hints on dealing with crying and fussing, guidance for teaching children about “good touch,” compassionate advice for foster and adoptive parents, and much more.

COLIC SOLVED
Bryan Vartabedian, M.D.


For generations, doctors have been diagnosing babies with colic, offering little comfort and few solutions to worried, weary parents. But recent medical advances made through cutting-edge technology now reveal that many if not most cases are caused by acid reflux. In this revolutionary book, Bryan Vartabedian, a noted pediatric gastroenterologist and the father of two babies with acid reflux, provides hands-on, practical advice about this hidden epidemic—and how to make your own baby happy again. Complete with inspiring real-life cases of colic solved, plus tips and illustrations, this essential guide provides real answers to a problem that has been upsetting babies—and parents—for years. Help and hope are at hand!
