Baby Care book cover

Baby Care

Babies are special little people. They are different from older children or adults. New parents don't always know the healthiest ways to care for their newborn child.

Why is breastfeeding important? What situations call for a visit to the doctor? Why do babies cry? With just one or two sentences per page, this book guides new parents through the first year of their child's life.

This is a smaller, very low-priced version of a book we previously published in a larger, Lao and Hmong edition.

by Dr. Louisa Mackenzie and Phommady Vesaphong, illustrated by Seng Xaysawan
