Providing specific information Teen parents need during that special and sometimes frustrating postpartum period, this book is designed to help parents get acquainted with their newborn. Chapters are filled with succinct information on "what's normal" for keeping baby comfortable, including breastfeeding, guarding baby's health, taking care of mom, dad's role, dealing with parents' tiredness, and three-generation living. Parents are given a realistic look at those first days home with their new baby--the overwhelming tiredness, the importance and joy of bonding with their newborn, and the possibility of baby blues. This guide escorts young parents through what is perhaps the most important period in a newborn's life, their first month after birth.
