The crib is assembled, the car seat is installed, and those tiny onesies are washed and folded. But babies don’t come with instruction manuals, like cribs and car seats do. This week, pediatrician Dr. Lauren Crosby joins Heidi for a “bringing baby home” bootcamp. From the most common questions she hears from new parents, to baby’s first trip out, to what to expect in those early diapers, this episode will prepare you for those first few weeks with your newborn.

When Heidi Murkoff wrote the book ‘What To Expect When You’re Expecting’, she was pregnant with her daughter Emma. Her mission was simple: to help parents know what to expect, every step of the way. That mission has grown to include the world's bestselling pregnancy and parenting series and most popular pregnancy and parenting app. Now, Emma is a mom too—and they’re teaming up on the ‘What To Expect’ podcast to help you navigate your entire journey, from conception, to pregnancy, to the first years of parenting. Heidi and Emma break down your biggest questions, interview famous moms, and cover the issues you need to know about—from healthcare to childcare to maternal leave. Nothing is TMI, and nothing is off-limits! For more from Heidi and Emma, find them at @HeidiMurkoff, @EmmaBingWTE and @WhatToExpect.
