"Babyhood is a book written by Dr Luther Emmett Holt and first published in 1885. It is a comprehensive guide for new parents on how to care for their babies during the first year of life. The book covers topics such as breastfeeding, formula feeding, sleep patterns, hygiene and developmental milestones. Dr Holt was a paediatrician who recognised the need for parents to have accurate and reliable information on infant care. At the time of the book's publication, infant mortality rates were high and many parents lacked knowledge about how to properly care for their babies. "Babyhood was designed to provide practical guidance based on scientific research and medical knowledge. The book was a bestseller and remained in print for over 50 years, with several editions and updates. Praised for its clear and concise writing style and practical advice, it became a trusted resource for generations of parents. Although some of the medical advice in the book is now outdated, Babyhood remains a landmark publication in the field of paediatric care and a valuable historical resource.
