"Let's face it : babies don't do much. So when we want to know how a baby is feeling, we look at how they are eating, sleeping, and pooping. But baby digestion is a surprisingly complicated landscape, and most new parents struggle to interpret everything from burps and grunts to diapers and spit-up. In fact, for parents of newborns, digestive issues are one of the leading causes of pediatrician visits. Enter Bryan Vartabedian, M.D., one of America's top pediatric gastroenterologists. In Looking Out for Number Two, Dr. Vartabedian draws from over twenty years of experience as a doctor and father to present an insightful yet irreverent guide to newborn digestive health : what goes in, what comes out, and what it all means. In this accessible, easy-to-use manual, Dr. Vartabedian marries his medical expertise with lively anecdotes and humor to reassure, support, and empower parents so that they can take charge of their baby's health. With his warm, authoritative voice, Dr. Vartabedian tackles everything from standard questions about burping positions and bowel movements to hot button issues like the role of the microbiome in the development of allergies and the debate over breast milk vs. formula. Throughout, he soothes parents' concerns and answers their most urgent question : "Is this normal?" Complete with line drawings, diagrams, graphs, and charts, Looking Out for Number Two is the owner's manual you always wanted for your baby."-- Provided by publisher.
