As a practicing Obstetrician, I have experienced the joy of being the first to hold a new baby and deliver it to their new parents. To date, not one has come with instructions. This book speaks for many new babies and reminds us that each baby is a unique new life yet shares many common needs: the need to be held, loved, nurtured, and taught. I highly recommend this book and suggest reading it before birth with daily review each day. This book will be a wonderful gift to give our children as they someday will have children of their own.
