Introduction CONGRATULATIONSns! YOU ARE LIKELY reading this book because you are pregnant, have a newborn, or care for a child birth to age five. No matter what the reason, this book will provide you with every- thing you need to know to raise a healthy, happy, and resilient child. Whether you choose to read it from cover to cover, read the chapter for your child’s current age to discover what she will be doing next month, or you just want to flip to the specific symptoms, illness, or issue that your child has, you will find a wealth of information vetted by an organization comprised of more than 67,000 pediatricians. That’s a lot of brain power and advice! Most of your newborn’s needs are the same as generations ago, while others have changed due to modern-­day busy lifestyles. Babies always need love, nutritious food, good health, secure surroundings, skills to build self-­esteem and resilience, and plenty of one-­on-­one time together with you reading books and having fun. They don’t need distractions or electronics (please put your phone down). Amer_9781984817709_4p_all_r1.e.indd 21 7/24/19 4:27 PM
