Nervous new parents can breathe more easily now, thanks to writer and mother Mary Jeanne Menna's fresh approach to baby care advice. Rather than passing along recommendations from pediatricians and child psychologists, she supplies tips from the real experts: moms. Menna offers lessons learned firsthand on breast-feeding, teething, diaper changing, postpartum depression and other nitty-gritties--all pediatrician reviewed and approved. Menna's book is a compilation of reassuring thoughts from some "been there, done that" masters.
