When I had my daughter all of my ideas of beautiful babies and the perfect motherhood went out the window. It was a super hot summer and she cried all the time. I didn’t have enough breast milk to feed her so I had to switch to formula, the list goes on and on. I wish I had had the Mommy MD Guide to Your Baby’s First Year to refer to.
There are tips from 70 Doctors who are mothers too. This book by Rallie McAllister, MD, MPH and Jennifer Bright Reich covers a huge range of information that women need the first year. From how to remove stains to stocking your diaper bag.
Something else I didn’t anticipate was the Baby Blues. Worse yet? My husband recognized and said “Of all people you’d be the last I would think would get it.” Can you imagine? To Say I was livid is an understatement. There is even information on Depression and when it’s time to call a doctor.
All of this information will help get you and your new baby off to the right start.
