What To Expect, The Second Year Book & Gift Box Giveaway
Heidi Murkoff’s What to Expect has delivered again. Announcing the arrival of a brand-new member of the What to Expect family: What to Expect the Second Year. The essential sequel to What to Expect the First Year, with 9.7 million copies in print, What to Expect the Second Year picks up the action at baby’s first birthday, and takes parents through what can only be called “the wonder year”—12 jam-packed (and jam-smeared) months of memorable milestones (from first steps to first words, first scribbles to first friends), lightning-speed learning, endless explorations driven by insatiable curiosity. Not to mention a year of challenges, both for toddlers and the parents who love them, but don’t always love their behaviors (picky eating, negativity, separation anxiety, bedtime battles, biting, and tantrums). Comprehensive, reassuring, empathetic, realistic, and practical, What to Expect the Second Year is filled with solutions, strategies, and plenty of parental pep talks. It helps parents decode the fascinating, complicated, sometimes maddening, always adorable little person last year’s baby has become.
From the first birthday to the second, this must-have book covers everything parents need to know in an easy-to-access, topic-by-topic format, with chapters on growth, feeding, sleeping, behaviors of every conceivable kind, discipline (including teaching right from wrong), and keeping a toddler healthy and safe as he or she takes on the world. There’s a developmental time line of the second year plus special “milestone” boxes throughout that help parents keep track of their toddler’s development. Thinking of traveling with tot in tow? There’s a chapter for that, too.
I remember reading "What to Expect When You're Expecting", when I was pregnant and I loved this book. I read it many times and it was so helpful. I would recommend it to any expecting parent. Being a new parent, raises many questions from the minute you find out you are going to be a parent right up until your children are grown. I wish there was a What to Expect for the Teen years to help me with my moody daughter. I would've found this What to Expect the Second Year book very helpful too. I wish that Heidi would have published this book back when my children were younger. I know this must have book will be a Big Hit for any new parent.
Good news!!! One of my lucky readers can win this book along with a Gift Box filled with great products worth over $150.
