The First Forty Days

Before you focus on concocting Baby's first foods, you'll need to take care of and nourish yourself. This can be especially key during the first 40 days after giving birth. While today's moms don't often spend maternity leave resting, this book urges and empowers moms to focus on healing and bonding with baby during the early days.

Available at amazon.com, $16.96.
