The Catholic Guide to Surviving and Thriving in the First Three Years of Parenthood
Then Comes Baby
by Greg and Lisa Popcak • 288 pages • 5.5 x 8.5 inches

This book is perfect for new Catholic parents and for those of us who seek to understand and minister to them, covering the first three years of parenthood. GIve this as a post-baptism gift from the parish, start a new parents' group around it, or simply read it as a leader to give you insights on what these young families are experiencing.

Greg and Lisa Popcak coach Catholic couples as they become first-time parents as they adjust to their new identities and help them face the inevitable challenges of parenthood with ideas for bonding with babies and getting sufficient sleep and nutrition—all while seeing these everyday experiences through the lens of Catholic teaching on the purpose of family life. It is a unique guide to caring for one’s baby, self, marriage, and spiritual life.

The Popcaks lend readers the benefit of their twenty-five years’ experience in parenting and marriage and family counseling to help them navigate the earliest years of parenthood. They recommend rituals, routines, and tips on how to manage feeding, fatigue, and finances and how also to prioritize marital bonding and faith life, suggesting that setting the pattern early will pay dividends later.

The Popcaks are well-known nationally syndicated radio hosts and have authored more than a dozen books on marriage and family life. Authors founded and direct the Pastoral Solutions Institute as well as the Catholic Attachment Parenting Corner.
