Book Description:

Unlike most baby care books, expert pediatrician and health communicator DR. PAUL Roumeliotis takes a unique approach by emphasizing what scientific advances have confirmed—that what happens early on in life affects one’s overall health decades down the road.

Baby Comes Home communicates the latest science that explains how positive or negative early childhood experiences can have lifelong consequences. The book begins by describing the vital changes that occur in a baby’s brain during the first 18 months. It then explores the new “Science of TLC”, that shows how tender, loving, and caring relationships with babies help to positively shape their brains. The book then presents important practical information on safety in the home and outdoors, baby routines/patterns, immunizations, injury prevention, nutrition, and more. To complete this useful guide, DR.PAUL also reviews common baby care issues and concerns as well as illnesses and conditions commonly seen during the first few years of life.

Whether you’re a parent, grandparent, daycare teacher or child caregiver, this book is an excellent reference resource for your baby’s current and future health, wellness and prosperity.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT “BABY COMES HOME”:

“Dr. Paul, an expert in pediatrics, has written a groundbreaking book about the importance of childhood/infant health in preventing illness and ensuring wellness later on in life. An accessible and valuable resource for doctors, psychiatrists, paramedics and parents around the world, this book should be used by organizations to further global initiatives relating to pediatric health on the international stage, the main specialized bodies of the United Nations, UNICEF and WHO in particular. If you are one of the believers of my own quote on this very subject: “A sound mind can only be found in a sound body,” then I strongly recommend that you carefully read and digest this innovative book by Dr.Paul accordingly.”
-His Excellency, Ambassador Doctor Waheed Waheedullah, United Nations Chief Trouble Shooter, Mother Theresa Peace Prize Winner

“Baby Comes Home” highlights how important the first few months of a baby’s life are. From delving into the science of the developing brain to exploring the daily routines of infant care, Dr. Paul has written an informative and engaging book about ways to invest in your baby’s current and lifelong health and wellness. I wish Dr. Paul’s book had been around when my five kids were growing up! He has anticipated the questions parents have and gives answers in a clear no nonsense way. He even makes the science understandable. This will be a well-thumbed book by all new parents and frequent late night reading!”
-Dr. Jean Clinton, MD, FRCP(C), Infant and Child Psychiatrist & Assistant Clinical Professor, Psychiatry
and Behavioural Neuroscience, McMaster University

This is a most important book for parents and those interested in the health of children. Dr. Paul is uniquely qualified to be its author. For over 30 years he has not only studied the science of children’s health, and has written hundreds of articles but he has provided care of 1000s of children. His conversation with parents has given him a unique perspective on how many of the health issues that have to be dealt with,  can be prevented or uniquely approached. Use this book  as a resource,  use it as a textbook or use this book to help parents provide the kind day to day care they deserve.

REVIEW:   (written by Josie-Lina Miron)
.
I ran a day-care with two other people in a centre that provided structured learning and social development opportunities for children from two (2) to four (4) years of age. My specialty was with babies from the age of one to eighteen months.
.

I wish I had this reference book back in the day when I ran my daycare.  Having read both The Secret Life of the Unborn Child by T. Verny and What to Expect When You’re Expecting ,  I found that Baby Comes Home values the importance of the pregnancy similar to The Unborn Child  and gives proven facts and information necessary for the baby’s first eighteen months and more than prepares any parent and/or caregiver.  I highly recommend this book as it is a fascinating, well documented, reference guide where, if it concern’s a baby’s first two years, you’ll find the answers to all your questions.
