The essential guide to giving your baby the best possible start in life.

Why bother making your own baby food when there are so many choices conveniently located at your grocery store?

Unfortunately, many people don’t realize just how easy (not to mention economical!) it is to make your own. Armed with a steamer, a blender and a little planning, in one afternoon parents can prepare a month’s supply of healthy, wholesome meals for their infants and toddlers -- food that’s bursting with nutrition and flavour.

By introducing your baby to a wide range of fresh, stimulating tastes and textures, you will help establish healthy eating patterns they will follow into adulthood. Recipes such as Vegetable Ragout, Broccoli Risotto, Chicken Apple Delight and Gourmet Tuna Melts, all kid-tested and mom-approved, are grouped according to age: four to six months, six to eight months, eight to twelve months and twelve to twenty-four months. And most of the recipes are designed to be prepared in advance and frozen in single servings. It couldn’t be easier to provide your baby with great taste, freshness, variety and balanced nutrition. It’s also important to note that none of the recipes in this book contains any added salt or sugar, not to mention the starches and fillers found in many commercially prepared jarred varieties.

The Baby’s Table was co-written by a teacher and a medical doctor, in response to patient demand and their own needs as parents. Creative recipes that stress the importance of whole foods and fresh ingredients, in combination with current medical/nutritional information that complies with the Canadian Paediatric Society’s guidelines, make this book the most comprehensive resource available for practical advice on feeding your baby.

Your baby’s nutrition is critical for growth and development. Making your own baby food is a fun and cost-efficient way to participate in your baby’s health, offering the widest variety of textures and flavours, as well as many other nutritional advantages not available in commercial baby food. Give it a try and watch your little one grin from ear to ear!

Also included are weekly and monthly meal-planners, growth and development charts, and detailed information on relevant topics such as:
• Breastfeeding
• Weaning
• Formulas
• Vitamin supplementation
• Timing of introducing new foods
• Food allergies and intolerances
• Omega-3 fatty acids
• Choking
• Iron deficiency

Good Food to Go is the ultimate guide to packing healthy lunch boxes with food that kids will enjoy and parents can feel good about. Back-to-school means back-to-lunch-boxes, and the daily quandary of what to put in them. With this new book, two working moms - one a teacher, one a pediatrician - offer creative ideas for balanced lunches and nutritious snacks, as well as up-to-date health tips that will make packing lunch a joy and not a chore. Given that children consume approximately one third of their daily calories at school, what goes into kids' lunch boxes is vital to their well-being. Yet it still needs to be hot enough, cold enough or crisp enough to withstand a morning in the cloakroom. (And with allergies on the rise many schools are now nut-free, eliminating that old standby: peanut butter.) Most important, the lunch needs to be kid-friendly and delicious because after all, the healthiest lunch isn't very healthy if it goes uneaten.

Good Food to Go fuses the how-to's of creating wholesome, homemade lunches with the latest information on food and nutrition. Practical tips will help parents make environmentally conscious food choices and eliminate lunch-box waste to ensure children are eating for a healthier planet. Many of the recipes outline what can be done the night before, while others may be made in bulk and frozen, facilitating easy, last-minute lunches. Handy meal planners help to ensure that kids are eating a healthy variety of nutritious lunches throughout the week.

Some things about babies, happily, will never change. They still arrive warm, cuddly, soft, and smelling impossibly sweet. But how moms and dads care for their brand-new bundles of baby joy has changed—and now, so has the new-baby bible.

Announcing the completely revised third edition of What to Expect the First Year. With over 10.5 million copies in print, First Year is the world’s best-selling, best-loved guide to the instructions that babies don’t come with, but should. And now, it’s better than ever. Every parent’s must-have/go-to is completely updated.

Keeping the trademark month-by-month format that allows parents to take the potentially overwhelming first year one step at a time, First Year is easier-to-read, faster-to-flip-through, and new-family-friendlier than ever—packed with even more practical tips, realistic advice, and relatable, accessible information than before. Illustrations are new, too.

Among the changes: Baby care fundamentals—crib and sleep safety, feeding, vitamin supplements—are revised to reflect the most recent guidelines. Breastfeeding gets more coverage, too, from getting started to keeping it going. Hot-button topics and trends are tackled: attachment parenting, sleep training, early potty learning (elimination communication), baby-led weaning, and green parenting (from cloth diapers to non-toxic furniture). An all-new chapter on buying for baby helps parents navigate through today’s dizzying gamut of baby products, nursery items, and gear. Also new: tips on preparing homemade baby food, the latest recommendations on starting solids, research on the impact of screen time (TVs, tablets, apps, computers), and “For Parents” boxes that focus on mom’s and dad’s needs. Throughout, topics are organized more intuitively than ever, for the best user experience possible.
Jamie Glowacki—potty-training expert, Pied Piper of Poop, and author of the popular guide, Oh Crap! Potty Training—shares her proven 6-step plan to help you toilet train your preschooler quickly and successfully.

Her 6-step, proven process to get your toddler out of diapers and onto the toilet has already worked for tens of thousands of kids and their parents.

If you’ve ever said to yourself:

** How do I know if my kid is ready?
** Why won’t my child poop in the potty?
** How do I avoid “potty power struggles”?
** How can I get their daycare provider on board?
** My kid was doing so well—why is he regressing?
** And what about nighttime?!

Oh Crap! Potty Training can solve all of these (and other) common issues. This isn’t theory, you’re not bribing with candy, and there are no gimmicks. This is real-world, from-the-trenches potty training information—all the questions and all the ANSWERS you need to do it once and be done with diapers for good.
