Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
As you all know we introduced Jace to our family on December 30th, 2013. Sophia is a happy big sister, but still adjusting to not getting time ALL to herself. You see, she`s 6 years old so getting all the one on one time for so long is a big change for her. Of course, while I remember the basics of parenting, I don`t know it all. I had a girl for my first baby and to be honest, she was a bit easier. She was more cooperative when it came to doing things than Jace is. I guess that`s the typical boy for you though. Of course having girls and boys are different for apparent reasons as well. For me, it`s easy to tell when there`s something not normal with Sophia`s girl parts. I mean hello, being a female myself it`s just a bit more obvious. Jace on the other hand, well, that`s generally when I call my husband in to ask if something is normal or not. I mean, I don`t have one of those so I don`t know! Even the diaper change experience is a bit different with Jace than it was with Sophia. Not by a lot, but just a slight difference. Well to help with all those questions is Dr. Carey`s Baby Care book
. Not only did she send me a book and 2 adorable blankets, but she`s giving one away to one of you guys as well!
Think of this book as a user's guide to your baby's first year
, an office visit to your baby's physician found between the covers of this book. It's arranged so that the most common questions are handled by topic. My goal is to answer a lot of the questions parents have that their own physicians may not spend the time to really answer, and to do so clearly and simply, and with lots and lots of pictures where appropriate. There are certainly many medically related questions that are best answered by someone in the medical field, but rarely do health practitioners take the time to go into those answers with enough depth for the parents.
When I first saw the book, I`ll be honest, I wasn`t expecting much. When I opened it up though, I was quite surprised. The book has quite a bit of details, photos, and information. I didn`t want to take a picture of some of the pages because I didn`t think it`d be appropriate to show online, but from a parenting perspective it shows you what`s not normal on the bottoms of girl and boy babies. The thing is, I don`t want to be the type of parent who bugs the doctor for EVERYTHING. Obviously if I`m seriously concerned I will, but if I see just a small spot of something or a little bump, unless it`s concerning I`m more curious and wait until the next check up to bring it up. With the book I felt it was honest and very helpful, particularly to new parents. I can honestly say I would recommend the book.
