Love Baby Healthy

Evidence-based health information presented in a readable way.

A major part of our mission at blue manatee press is to create excellent children’s books that convey important health information to families of infants and young children in a readable, nurturing way. Love Baby Healthy is a series of board books designed to be not only soothing read-alouds for babies, but also important learning tools for parents. Covering topics such as SIDS and Shaken Baby Syndrome prevention, breastfeeding, early literacy, and developmental milestones, the books in this series are perfect for new parents (or any parents) who want to ensure that the story for their children is a happy and healthy one.

We welcome partnerships with public health, pediatric, and other non-profit advocacy organizations to help spread these important messages. Special discounts are available. Visit our partner page for more information!

*This series is also available in Spanish. Please see individual book pages for information on Spanish titles.

Praise for Love Baby Healthy:

Calm Baby, Gently fills the void on a topic of great importance for new parents – newborn crying. This warm and soothing book provides helpful suggestions and comforting reassurance at a time when parents need it most. A must read!” - Margaret Clark, Senior Director, Every Child Succeeds
“A powerful teaching tool, this amazing little book makes SIDS prevention education at once fun to read and visually entertaining. A terrific medium for modernizing and popularizing the ‘Back to Sleep’ concept, it should be read by all prospective and new parents, grandparents, older siblings and hired caretakers.” - Dr. Jeanne Ballard, MD, retired associate professor of Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, and author of The New Ballard Score
