From a newborn caretaker with years of hands-on experience with celebrity clients, comes an indispensable, practical, and reassuring guide to a baby’s first three months, which will give mothers the virtual experience of having their very own baby nurse at their side.
Luiza has over thirty years of hands-on experience as a highly sought after baby nurse, in her home country of Brazil and throughout southern California. Her warm, nurturing, and commonsense approach promotes balance, and helps new moms and dads to tap into their own wisdom, trust their instincts, build their confidence, and choose a course that fits their needs and their baby’s personality.
With Eat, Play, Sleep, Luiza zeroes in on the first three months of a new baby’s life, and gives in-depth guidance on everything from diapering, bathing, and swaddling, to knowing when (and how) to begin establish feeding and sleeping routines. This focus on the first three months makes the book particularly useful for working moms, many of whom will use these limited weeks at home to establish both their bond with their baby, and their routines. The special skills and expertise of a personal baby nurse are a luxury most families can’t obtain – until now.
Can being patient, open, and attentive guarantee that a baby will be a good sleeper or have a great disposition? Of course not! But no matter what challenges a newborn brings, patience, openness, and attentiveness will help a new mother rise to meet them. With Eat, Play, Sleep, Luiza gets into all of the details of what to expect in the first few months of life as a mother. Luiza discusses how your newborn looks; bonding with your baby; breast feeding; routines; bathing and massage and how to calm a difficult baby.
Eat, Play, Sleep is like having Luiza in your home, providing instruction and advice when you need it most. It’s the ideal gift for a baby shower, as new moms will love having this breadth and depth of information at their fingertips, presented in a voice that is encouraging, positive, and non-clinical.
By blending the most basic, essential information with a helpful way to keep track of your baby’s development over the first three months, Eat, Play, Sleep will truly be the only book new moms need.
