Prenatal classes are a given for most first time parents. But regardless of how comprehensive those lessons are, most parents still have a lot of unanswered questions when the new baby arrives.

Now the authors of the YOU book series, including YOU: The Owner's Manual, YOU: The Smart Patient, YOU: On a Diet, YOU: Staying Young, YOU: Being Beautiful and YOU: Having a Baby offer another addition to their library of medical information manuals.

YOU: Raising Your Child, written by doctors Michael F. Roizen and Mehmet C. Oz, offers advice on raising children from first breath to first grade. In addition to medical questions moms and dads may have around allergies, accidents, vaccinations, fevers and hospitalization, the book addresses common concerns such as sleep schedules, feeding options and developmental stages.

The book also shares some of the latest research relating to the optimal environment -- physically, emotionally, socially and developmentally -- for a child's successful growth. The authors give simple ideas for encouraging an infant and toddler's imagination and curiosity as well helpful points for choosing other childcare providers and dealing with various family situations including adoption, blended families, multiples and divorce. Finally the book contains a number of kid friendly recipes, fun exercises and suggestions for discipline.

Bringing that new precious bundle home from the hospital can be an intimidating experience for any new mom or dad. Luckily, YOU: Raising Your Child provides realistic information that can help alleviate some of the fears that come with taking on this new responsibility and allows you to enjoy your new role as a parent.
