Resources for New Parents

While our website is a valuable resource, you may not find the exact answer you are looking for here. There are so many questions that can come up during the first few weeks and months of your baby's life – we understand! 

As always, you can ask your pediatrician any questions that come up. At your baby's two-week checkup, you will receive a booklet filled with suggestions and remedies for common childhood illnesses. Along with this booklet and our website, there are several other books (available at any library or bookstore) that may address your questions. 

  • The American Academy of Pediatrics, Caring for Your Baby and Young Child (Birth to Age 5), edited by Steven Sherbo, M.D. and Robert Hannemann, M.D., New York, 1993 by Bantam Books
  • What to Expect the First Year, by Arlene Eisenberg, published by Workman Publishing, New York
  • The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, by La Leche League 
  • The Ultimate Breastfeeding Book of Answers, by Jack Newman, M.D.
