A First Time Parent's Survival Guide

by Clifford Dale James



Self-Help: A First Time Parent's Survival Guide: A How to Manual for the First Two Years Kindle Edition.

Why don’t babies come with a how to manual?”
Wouldn’t it be nice to have a pediatrician there with you so you could remember what was said in those well visits and to ask simple questions to? Finally a parenting book that is organized around your baby’s well visits, isn’t written like a text book and meant to calm you down rather than scare you about all the very rare possibilities.
Dr. Cliff James is a board certified Pediatrician in private practice for the last 15 years. His goal was to write a book that could both inform and entertain a new parent. With the help of his own baby, Kaden, you get a look at parenting from a pediatrician point of view as well as the mind of a baby/toddler/evil genius.

This book covers:

*Choosing a pediatrician
*Feeding your baby
*Pee, Poop, Puke and Snot
*What happens in the hospital
*Chapters for each well visit
*Developmental milestones

This book is designed to bring a little lightheartedness to parenthood with cartoons, jokes, and plenty of Dr. James’ own disaster stories as a parent. “To often we as pediatricians and parents spend too much time emphasizing how much work it is to be a parent and lose sight of the fact children are hilarious and a great source of joy.”

Available On Kindle & In Paperback

I just received your book in the mail. I skipped right to chapter 22 (funny stories) and I have already learned 3 valuable lessons. 1. Don't read this book while trying to get the baby to sleep. She keeps waking up because I can't quite laughing. 2. When I feel like I'm not doing a good job I need to remind myself at least I didn't give my child alcohol. 3. Have fun.

-Sincerely, mommy of 4 month old who really needed this. Thanks


Cliff James
lives in Oak Ridge, TN with his wife Kristi, sons Dalton, Tyler and Kaden, as well as some critters. He works in a busy pediatric office and has the time of his life doing what he knows he was meant to do...take care of children. He is the founder of www.pedvaccines.com and is currently working on a new website www.helpmommy.com which will be launching in 2016.

My story started September 30, 1969. I remember it being a warm, sleepy experience when I was suddenly awoken to bright lights, loud noises, and someone smacking me on my bootie. It was then that I realized I was naked as a jaybird and have had a fear of public nudity ever since. Some guy with one foot in the grave was holding me by one foot and I saw a smiling tired lady with long, dark hair and a dude with a silly smile standing next to her.

I guess they didn't know what to call me so they just started calling me the same thing the guy with the silly smile was called and just slapped another number at the end of the name.

I grew up in the country in the middle of nowhere surrounded by children, not because there were lots of people out there, but because the tired lady and the guy with the silly smile thought they should have a whole lot of kids. For some reason all of the kids they had except me were deformed little boys that were missing some parts, so we called them sisters.

My dad, the guy with the silly smile, was a hard worker, mom was making a home (something like that) and five kids were making a lot of messes and a bunch of My grandma told me that I was going to grow up and become a pediatrician and it seemed like a good idea.

I attended West Texas State University and got a degree in biology. With this degree you are given the choice of going to school or starving to death so off to medical school I went.

I started medical school at Texas Tech Health Science Center in Lubbock, TX. Somehow I managed to survive and thrive in medical school in spite of violating all the dress codes and all known stereotypes of medical students. When I finished medical school it was painfully obvious that I was still an idiot so I moved on to the next step of becoming a pediatrician and went to Cleveland, OH and spent three years as an indentured servant, but learned a whole lot about pediatrics.

In July of 2000 I started practicing in Oak Ridge, TN
