  Publishers Weekly Review

Based on a book that celebrated pediatric gastroenterologist Cohen wrote 30 years ago (Healthy Babies, Healthy Kids), this fact-packed resource, featuring numerous flow charts and tables (about vitamins, commercial formula comparisons, infant-growth rates, and scads of other data), covers recent and traditional pediatric nutritional science in 16 concise chapters structured in a question-and-answer format, and a thorough appendix. The author's philosophy is reassuring: "The entire concept of parenthood is based on nourishing and nurturing your children during every aspect of their development." An advocate of breast-feeding whose children and grandchildren were nursed, yet received supplemental formula, Cohen has also consulted with most major formula manufacturers. Breast may not be best for all mothers and babies, and chapters cover topics ranging from allergies, colic, normal weight, pooping, prematurity, and essential nutrients to timing the introduction of solid food and toddler dietary recommendations for breast- and bottle-fed infants. As an experienced doctor, Cohen has seen it all, but except for some old-fashioned wisdom found in his excellent anecdotes about babies he has successfully treated, and the helpful summary of information at each chapter's conclusion, this volume contains more algorithms than accessible mommy-friendly advice.

Since economic drivers now supplement nutritional value when parents make feeding decisions, What to Feed Your Baby: Cost Conscious Nutrition for Your Infant presents vital information that will help parents provide optimal nutrition for their infants in a cost effective way. The author's clear explanations and thoughtful recommendations are often surprising, occasionally startling, sometimes controversial, and always useful. Common questions are carefully answered and supplemented with charts, figures, and summaries that highlight important points. The author's innovative, cost-sensitive methods can save both new and seasoned parents hundreds to thousands of dollars yearly and improve their families' nutrition at the same time. His recommendations, which have received national commendation from the American Academy of Pediatrics, serve as the basis for a better understanding of the complexities of infant formula, the benefits of breastfeeding, handling allergies, introducing solid foods, and other feeding decisions, while addressing cost-sensitivity and overall nutrition for newborns and infants. Using poignant patient narratives and a conversational voice, Dr. Stan Cohen offers parents a fuller picture of the broad spectrum of eating and feeding choices facing parents today.
