Whether your pregnancy was an “oopsie” or stemmed from intricately charted ovulation cycles, you are most likely going to kick off the party with a home pregnancy test. Or ten. And there you’ll be, staring at a little stick and waiting for it to change your entire life. It’s positive! This is the beginning of your most important story. But what do you do next? First: Freak out. Next...? Well, that's a different story. Dawn Dais, author of the series The Sh!t No One Tells You About, has compiled 102 tips and to‑dos that will get you up to speed for the biggest changes of your life—from the practical (prepare freezer meals), to the serious (check your blood sugar), to the seemingly‑frivolous‑but‑actually‑really‑important (go out with your husband or girlfriends to that restaurant you love).
 
There are countless pregnancy books for first-time parents out there, but only 102 Things to Do Before You Are Due perfectly balances solid advice to prepare for a new baby and the right amount of humor to help you enjoy every month of the pregnancy.

Dr. Michel Cohen, named by the New York Post as the hip, "must-have" pediatrician, has an important message for parents: Don't worry so much. In an easy-reference alphabetical format, The New Basics clearly lays out the concerns you may face as aparent and explains how to solve them -- without fuss, without stress, and without harming your child by using unnecessary medicines or interventions.

With sensitivity and love, Dr. Michel describes proven techniques for keeping your children healthy and happy without driving yourself crazy. He will show you how to set positive habits for sleeping and eating and how to treat ailments early and effectively. You'll learn when antibiotics are helpful and when they can be harmful. If you're having trouble breast feeding, pumping, or bottle weaning, Dr. Michel has the advice to set you back on track. If after several months your baby is still not sleeping through the night, The New Basics will provide you with tried-and-true methods to help ease this difficult transition for babies and parents.

Dr. Michel recognizes that you're probably asking the same questions his own patients' parents frequently ask, so he includes a section called "Real Questions from Real Parents" throughout the book. You'll find important answers about treating asthma, head injuries, fevers, stomach bugs, colic, earaches, and other ailments. More than just a book on how to care for your child's physical well-being, The New Basics also covers such parenting challenges as biting, hitting, ADD, separation anxiety, how to prevent the terrible twos (and threes and fours ...), and preparing your child for a new sibling.
