Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

A Doctor’s Original Baby Care Guide for that Important First Year

With over 120 full color pictures, I am able to share baby care as if you were in my office. Neatly written in under 100 pages (print version), this easy to understand guide is written by a doctor to assure reliable information for you and
your child. My goal in writing this guide is to ease your concerns and eliminate those sleepless nights. Dr. Carey’s® First Year Baby Care Guide will provide essential baby care knowledge and a better understanding of when your baby needs to be seen by a professional. In short, the confidence to be an outstanding parent to your baby.

Some of the topics Dr. Carey shares in this book
Your baby’s developmental milestones
Newborn rashes explained
How to handle minor medical problems as they arise
Surviving your baby being sick
Answers to the most common questions parents ask
PLUS – A place to record your baby’s milestones

My Review:
As a Nurse and Mother of three, I have read a selection of baby books over the years to help me figure out what I consider "minor" issues that come up that are usually not worth taking my child into the office for a visit to figure out.  I have a couple that are my "go to" books that I highly recommend to any expecting parent, babysitter, parent, grandparent or caregiver for young ones.  Dr Carey's Baby Care Guide is definitely one that I would recommend as an addition to those all-important reference books that I consider a must-have for anyone taking care of infants!

I was quite impressed with the subjects covered in this small book as well as the full-color, real life photos.  I can't tell you how many times I read about an issue but wished for a good picture example to compare my son's or daughter's problem to, and this book has a wonderful amount of reference photos.
This book is full of great advice and examples for baby care that any caregiver would love to have on hand.

This book is organized in a user-friendly way, where the most common questions are handled by topic, as well as an informative appendix, which cross-references topics and situations as well. A great book for a baby shower or new parent gift - or a great book for any caregiver to keep on hand!
