Birckmayer, Jennifer; And Others
All fifteen issues of a monthly eight-page newsletter for parents of infants are provided in this document. The first three issues offer advice on becoming a parent, preparing for childbirth, and caring for the baby at birth. The remaining 12 issues take up in sequence each of the baby's first 12 months of life. Parents are informed about characteristics of children at each age, given advice on safety and solving common problems of parenting, offered suggestions about playing with their infant, and given feeding advice appropriate to each stage of the baby's development. Additional suggestions are offered on several incidental topics such as how to deal with tension and stress and setting family rules. (RH)
