About the Book: medianet_width=’300′; medianet_height= ‘250’; medianet_crid=’178441427′; http://contextual.media.net/nmedianet.js?cid=8CU22YP55

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. 
My Review:
 Having a baby is an arduous task, but as a mother of 6 children I am here to tell you that being pregnant is only half the battle. The part of the journey that is the hardest begins when you bring that tiny human home. It is a job and blessing met with a tender heart, a sleepy smile, and pure exhaustion like you have known in your entire life. 
 Anything you could or want to know the author Dr. Paul Roumeliotis has covered within the 300 pages in Baby Comes Home. He gives you a brief summary on how to take general care of your baby all the way up to the age of 18 months. There is tons of very thought out and well researched information for young or first time parents. Vaccinations seem to be a hot topic these days and the doctor explains those as well. He also gives you information on the baby’s soft spot and first bath. So as you can see it is lots of information whether it is the day to day tasks or more important health information. Dr. Paul  Roumeliotis  runs the gammit and gives you a lot of information to ingest when it comes to your baby. I think this would make a great baby shower gift!
**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author.
