About the Book

Every new parent has been there—sleep-deprived, exhausted, and pacing the floor at 3:00 a.m. with an irritable baby who is having difficulty calming down and going back to sleep. In Secrets of a Baby Nurse, a medical professional relies on scientific research, personal study, and a lifelong adoration of babies to provide parents with valuable tips that will lead them to discover the delight of a well-rested, tranquil, and happy child—and most importantly, a good night’s sleep for everyone. Marsha Podd, a seasoned maternal-infant nurse and lactation specialist, shares her professional expertise in reading the body language of thousands of babies in order to teach parents how to interpret a baby’s cues, create a perfect sleep environment, and initiate a peaceful detachment. You’ll learn how to ensure a healthy womb environment; encourage a newborn toward daytime wakefulness; build consistent daily rhythms around sleep and food; observe and react to your baby’s signals; avoid postpartum depression; stay in a routine and still have a life outside the home. Secrets of a Baby Nurse offers step-by-step, practical advice that will help any parent create a serene, joy-filled relationship with their child.
