Dear Reader,

To write this book, I carefully analyzed over 800 scientific papers. First, I looked with the eyes of a scientist; I kept only what was true for all human babies, regardless of culture and family practices. Then, I looked with the eyes of a parent and kept only what felt important and useful for families to know during the beautiful, tiring, and ever-important first year.

This award-winning book is the result. I hope it helps you understand better, notice more, and worry less.
