Secrets from Expert Nurses on Preparing and Caring for Your Baby at Home

Seasoned baby nurses: Who better to help brand-new parents prepare and care for baby!

Over the last two decades, Carole Kramer Arsenault—a pediatric nurse and the founder of Boston Baby Nurse—has assisted hundreds of Boston-area parents through pregnancy, labor, birth, and all their new responsibilities once baby comes home. Now, in Newborn 101 (previously published as The Baby Nurse Bible), Arsenault and her team of baby nurses share their expert advice with parents everywhere! Newborn 101 covers the first trimester of pregnancy through baby’s crucial first three months:

  • Guidance on sleep, schedules, soothing, and development
  • Answers to hundreds of the most-asked questions that Arsenault and her fellow baby nurses field daily
  • Updates on breastfeeding, bathing, and swaddling babies
  • Top picks for baby monitors, car seats, apps—and more!
"Carole Arsenault’s new book,[ Newborn 101], may look like your typical guide to pregnancy and baby, but it’s not. It’s better, filled with well-researched tips from a professional who is also an experienced mom, tips that you probably have not heard before."—Baystate Parent Magazine

"[ Newborn 101], is chock-full of the kind of practical and helpful information that only an insider like Carole Arsenault would know. This book contains everything a couple needs to prepare for the adventure of labor and birth.”
Christiane Northrup, MD, author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom

“The stack of books available on breastfeeding, pregnancy, and postpartum can be overwhelming. Carole Arsenault covers all these topics and then some—including prenatal exercise and nutrition, choosing a pediatrician, raising a ‘green baby,’ and more. The Q&A format and highlighted Baby Nurse Tips make this book fun to read and easy to use. I’m making [ Newborn 101] my number one must-read book for new parents!”
Tamara Jessiman, Certified Nurse Midwife, Mount Auburn Hospital

“Birthing and caring for a baby is a transformative experience, and [ Newborn 101] helps new families make their way with confidence. It’s highly readable—and packed with insightful and helpful Q&As, lists, and tips.”
