Introduction Congratulations! You are likely reading this book because you are pregnant, or have a newborn, or care for a child under the age of one year old. No matter what the reason, this book will provide you with everything 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 baby’s current age to discover what she will be doing next month, or just want to flip to the specific symptoms, illness, or issue that your baby has, you will find a wealth of information vetted by an organi- zation comprised of more than 67,000 pediatricians. That’s a lot of brainpower and advice! Most of your newborn’s needs are the same as generations ago, while others have changed due to modern-­day busy life- styles.
