Shorter hospital stays-not much time for new mothers to learn. That''s the reality of birth in today''s hospitals. Young mothers need sound and supportive material on infant care and this companion book to Baby & Me is designed to guide new mothers through the especially difficult experience of dealing with a new baby in its first year.

Written with the same care and concern for accessible content, Best Start is meant to appeal to this same audience of women as an easy-to-use resource for these crucial first months of development

  • Targeted at the same reading level as Baby & Me
  • Covers one topic at a time
  • Bibliography, glossary, resource guides and index

The success enjoyed by Baby & Me is based on the support of health professionals throughout the country.

Best Start has been designed and produced with a specific need in mind: Guidance for young mothers who may not have the maturity, education, or experience to care for an infant easily. It is carefully constructed to deliver the basics on care and development from birth through an infant''s first year.

What makes Best Start unique and effective is that it emphasizes the basics of health, infant care, and the prevention of problems.
